Abstract:There are a number of substantial consequences of the development of the 'information society'. In general terms, these affect employment, structures of control and human dignity. Two opposing developments will result from the application of informatics, namely large, tightly controlled, efficient business, and small, ad hoc, personalised applications. In this article these developments are traced in detail in the South African situation, with particular reference to future trends in media. Photogr., ref.
