Closely related is a European desire for convergence among the countries of Europe, including those not yet admitted to the European Union. No one at the conference questioned the political value of efforts to reduce gaps in the prosperity of different European countries, but some wondered if pursuit of such objectives is consistent with full exploitation of the opportunities afforded by new technologies. One participant noted that although Europe is and will likely remain attached to the ideals of social equity and inter-European convergence, influences already afoot will inevitably make Europe more like America--more tolerant, that is, of disparities in income and wealth within nations and more realistic about the fact that all nations cannot achieve similar rates of economic development.

Considerable attention focused on how much weight could, or should, be given to the differing drivers of change. In this topic arena, discussion of the social dimension overlapped significantly with concurrent discussions of the government/political dimension and the economic/business dimension of the information revolution. 29 Future Scenarios The virtual conference generated three different scenarios for the future course of the information society in Europe, summarized below. • • • [Accelerated] evolution without radical change: In the past, the computer was predicted to result in shorter working hours and the paperless office; in fact, although information tasks are now handled much differently than before, the anticipated radical changes in working life did not occur as a result.
