Example text

Man was only able to increase his physical powers at the cost of the organic balance of nature. Secondly, the endeavor to make optimal use of the different machines involved, in the end, not just radical changes in technology, but also had widereaching consequences for society as a whole. In this respect, the Taylor system of organizing work involved much more than maximum efficiency in terms of business management. Factory work now specifically became the link, an elastic buffer, between the different elements of a, for the most part, rigid machine system.

Tomorrow's economic rallying call will be "we have to have the infonnation" - there is no justification for businesses not to link up with the standard systems of the new infonnation infrastructure. Accordingly, different levels will be fonned which will be in close communication with one another: the establishment of new businesses which are conceived, right from the start, along the lines of cooperation with existing research institutions and the manufacturing of hightech products based on a division of labor; craft and trade fonns which see themselves paramountly as service industries with advisory functions, and which share in common up-to-date data and telecommunication devices; work units with a large degree of autonomy which, with the aid of available development, production, sales, and marketing data, are able to produce "finished" product arid service packages; branches of industry which maintain joint infonnation networks for keeping tabs on the market, for evaluating the results of pure research or for linking up with mainframe computers.

In all fairness, however, one must point out that some of the popular technical reading material now flooding the market is not exactly suited to allaying people's fears. In a well meant effort to inform readers about the undreamt - of potential of existing and future communication and information services, a downright terrifying barrage of technical terms have been let loose: viewdata, compact disc, personal computer, CAD-, CAM-, CAE-, CNC-, controlled machines, narrow and broad band transmission media, copper co-axial and glass fibre cables, satellite broadcasting, sensory technique rain down on the public and produce at first a feeling of helplessness, and put people on the defensive.
