"We organized Vision 2021 around the theme that we are heading straight into the information age. Our goal is to raise the consciousness of policymakers in government and industry to the necessity for looking ahead, to recognize that the bureaucratic formulae of the Cold War may be largely irrelevant to the age of information. To this end, we selected speakers from government, from the private sector, and from academe, each of whom would help illuminate the misty paths into the uncertainties of the next century. It is our hope that your attendance at this conference will stimulate you proactively to explore with your colleagues the national security implications of living and working in the age of information."
