My job is to live in the future 20 years from today
Mr. Moss, who is 56, expects that technology will change society more profoundly in the next 20 years than it has in the past 20, by easing the burden of aging and improving communication, health care and education. He is enticed, for example, by the concept of cellphones that silence themselves upon entering a theater, or phones that convey the urgency of a call from an elderly parent at an unusual time of day.
The emphasis on the type of applications of technology will definitely shift more rapidly in the next 20 years. For the cellphone stuff Mr.Moss mentions, however, we may not have to wait that long.
