Fire your secretary. Put your Rolodex online. Thank us later.

The world, they say, is going to be a very different place come the 21st century.

Some of cyberspace's more enlightened visionaries have been heard proclaiming the dawn of the wearable computer and the death of the venerable PC; others foresee the Internet and the television converging to create a never-before-seen entertainment medium, and still others are betting on virtual reality stealing the thunder from what they sarcastically refer to as 'meatspace' :-)

Now, we're not hardened skeptics yet [except when it comes to that ephemeral thing called love ;-) ] - but we do wonder just how many of these grandiose schemes will ever see the light of day.

If you've ever had to sit around making small talk with your date's Dad while she decides which shoes go best with which dress, you can imagine the havoc wearable computers will play with her wardrobe; and even if the new NetTV hybrid you proudly carry home is capable of two million channels in Dolby stereo, what do you do if there's nothing to watch?! And as for virtual sex, you have *got* to be kidding - on a 33.6 dial-up modem connection, wading through quicksand would be more fun!!

However, as the Internet slowly spreads it's tentacles across the world, there is one activity we're sure to see a lot more of - data sharing and exchange. The Web, in its aspects, will begin to resemble a gigantic Filofax, enabling road warriors to access their schedules, contact information and to-do lists easily and transparently from anywhere in the world. So it doesn't matter if you've just been mugged in a dark alley in Berlin, or your laptop runs out of juice on the flight across the Pacific - if you can get to the 'Net, you can make that meeting, do that lunch and get the wife that bottle of Obsession ;-)

So this week, we thought that we'd tell you a little bit about the information management tools available on the World Wild Web. There's no shortage of them out there - but only a couple of them are worth your time - so here goes!
