We are pleased to
present original commentary prepared specifically for Future
Brief by Jeff Harrow, an expert on technological innovation
and all aspects of information technology. Jeff, now Principal
at The Harrow Group, was the chief technologist for the Corporate
Strategy Groups of both Compaq and Digital Equipment Corporation.
As the author and editor of the Web-based multimedia technology
journal and Webcast originally known as the "Rapidly Changing
Face of Computing", Jeff has shared his fascination with the
trends of contemporary computing and the technologies that
drive them with tens of thousands of people globally for nearly
twenty years. His new journal, The Harrow Technology Report,
available on the Web at www.TheHarrowGroup.com,
continues and significantly expands on this tradition.
Jeff is the co-author of a book, "The Disappearance of Telecommunications," and his commentaries on technology have been carried in numerous electronic and traditional media around the globe including Discover Magazine, United Press International, NanoTech-Now, and many others. He has also been interviewed on technology futures for TV programs, such as the History Channel's "Modern Marvels," and is an ongoing judge for Disney's Discover Magazine "Innovation Awards."
Jeff has numerous
patents issued and on file in the areas of network management
and user interface technology, and he is a commercial pilot.
He brings these and other technological interests together
to help people "look beyond the comfortable and obvious,"
so that they don't become road-kill on the Information Highway.
