NPR Summary

Imagine a world where machines wash, press and dress you on the way to work, and you can vacation via hologram on exotic beaches. In The New Digital Age, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and Google's Jared Cohen do just that — but it's no gee-whiz Jetsons fantasy. The pair forecasts a raft of new innovations and corresponding threats that will arise for dictatorships, techno revolutionaries and terrorists, among others.
