The Age of Context: Mobile, Sensors, Data and the Future of Privacy – Or how 5 Bucks can prepare you for the future

leave a comment »

I Just finished Robert Scoble and Shel Israel’s new book The Age of Context and for the first time ever I felt compelled to write a review on Amazon. I have done this for 2 reasons. The first is, I like Robert and I think he is one of the most tapped in techno geeks in the country. If you want to know the pulse of the valley and what’s happening or soon to happen in tech, Robert is a great resource. 2. as a marketer and entrepreneur i think that what Scoble and Israel are talking about is highly relevant to anyone looking to succeed in business going forward. 


Here is my brief Amazon review:


If you are looking to catch a glimpse of the future and learn how sensors, mobile devices and ubiquitous connectivity will affect your life then you should read Age of Context.
If you have ever enjoyed Heinlein, Clark, or Asimov then you should read Age of Context and appreciate that most of what Scoble and Israel reveal in this work is already happening and the rest most likely will.
If you are in the business of selling anything to anybody then you should read Age of Context because the people that do are going to leave you in the dust.
Simply put, this is a well written concise and timely essay and how technology is already changing our lives, for better or for worse. I applaud both authors for their insight and solid research and hope their epilogue become a reality, on all levels.
