Just in time for the millennium, elder statesman Dyson (Physics/Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton; From Eros to Gaia,etc.) sounds off on three technological revolutions that could radically transform human social arrangements—if we play our cards right.

A big "if," since some people may not like the cards, and Dyson's ideas are still on the drawing : Freeman Dyson. Dyson has written an enjoyable book about science. It is a tour de force that provides insight into one man's view of what the future might hold—and what he sees as the three legs of the stool that will be the foundation of this vision (research and development related to the sun, the genome, and the Internet, as noted in the title).

Written with passionate conviction about the ethical uses of science, The Sun, the Genome, and the Internet is both a brilliant reinterpretation of the scientific process and a challenge to use new technologies to close, rather than widen, the gap between rich and poor.

The Sun, The Genome, and The Internet is a must-read for anyone who wants a sneak preview into the future. Only Dyson could weave together this rich tapestry, blending ethics, ideology, science, and technology into a coherent vision of the future.

In The Sun, the Genome, & the Internet, Freeman J. Dyson attempts to couple space travel and conquest with the Sun, the Genome, and the Internet. His "high road" model predicts the future of society without the aide of social sciences.

Unfortunately, Dyson's writing lacks a historical context that would elucidate comprehensive meaning. "The Sun, the Genome, the Internet" is not an exception.

An additional agreeable character of his writing consists in the fact that he attaches importance to social justice realizable by technology. He expects that the gap between the rich and the poor would be narrowed by the ethical application of science/5(13).
