Exploring the Digital World
Consultants and leading executives weren't the only people sharing their vision of the future during DocuWorld. At the start of the conference, Xerox launched its DocuWorld Authors program, a writing competition for high school students throughout the United States.
The judges, who include San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein and author Armistead Maupin, will select 10 entrants who write the most compelling vision of what life will be like in the 21st century. The winning essays will be published on Xerox digital printers.
The next large DocuWorld event is scheduled to run concurrently with IPEX '98 in Birmingham, England, Sept. 22 to 30. In addition, many smaller regional and local conferences are scheduled, including events in emerging markets such as Moscow and Hong Kong.
