Quasi-Books are a series of 10 short books written by Vancouver-based futurist Frank Ogden / Dr. Tomorrow. Each book in the series focuses on the effects of change on an important aspect of modern life.
With knowledge doubling every 16 months (even faster in some new industries), the traditional Gutenberg-format book pipeline is too slow. Traditional books usually take a year from writing to distribution.
QuasiBooks, a concept created by Canadian literary icon John Robert Colombo, go from germination to distribution within weeks. For the two-thirds of North Americans who prefer conventional print to surfing the crests of cyberspace, Dispatches From Cyberspace is the way to get your vital information direct from the reconnaissance squad on the front lines.
Well before the Communications Age, World War I provided a similar new format with information written by war correspondents in the trenches and transmitted by telegraph -- titled Dispatches From the Front. Now Dispatches From Cyberspace offers the latest developments.
The battle has turned from the physical to the economic. Every innovation, every marriage of technologies, and every major speedup or compression of earlier developments has the potential to change the world -- and to create millionaires or techno peasants in nanoseconds.
QuasiBook format, 5.5" x, 8.5", typeset, instaprint, cerlox-bound.
