Technology is developing at a breathtaking rate. It seems like every week some new innovation makes the "cutting edge" obsolete. In this program, Walter Isaacson and experts explore our digital future, what new innovations will change the way we live, and how the rapid development of technology poses new threats to our security. This program is part of a special series, conceived by Harold Newman, examining where we’ve been, where we are and the complexities and possibilities of the world beyond tomorrow.


David E. Sanger is chief Washington correspondent of The New York Times and author of Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power. He first joined the Times in the Business Day section, specializing in the computer industry and high-technology trade. Walter Isaacson (moderator) is the CEO of the Aspen Institute and a former chairman of CNN and managing editor of Time magazine. He is the author of Steve Jobs.  Other speakers to be announced.
