ABSTRACT OF TALK
It's been nearly 20 years since America Online was founded. The world was a very different place back then. Affordable PCs were just making their way into people's homes; cellular telephones weighed around two pounds each; CD technology was still in its infancy, and most people didn't even have cable television. Little did anyone know the Internet was about to transform nearly every aspect of their lives. It was Steve Caseís belief that the online experience had unlimited potential to change the way society communicates, does business and learns about the world around us. During the past two decades, America Online, with Case at the helm, has been a key driver in pushing the Internet further into our everyday existence. Join us on January 12 as Case in conversation with Walt Mossberg, personal technology columnist for The Wall Street Journal, shares his shares his personal stories and discusses his perspectives on the Internetís amazing evolution.
