In The Fifth Wave, Michael Saylor argues that mobile intelligence is the fifth great computer wave and that the implications of the mobile devices we carry are just beginning to evolve. But mobile intelligence will be far more transformational than any other of the four computing waves that preceded it--mainframe, mini, PC, and PC with Internet--and it will create tremendous disruption for those who fail to grasp its significance and tremendous opportunities for those who do. Soon, it will be cheaper to learn to read with a tablet than paper, which means every literate person on the planet will have a mobile device from a younger age and will carry it with them everywhere their entire lives. Over five billion people will always be on the network. Mobile will turn retail into theater, make a Harvard-level education accessible to everyone, and bring the global information flow to the most backward village in Africa, leaving us amid so much information we'll need a new Google to search our surroundings. The Fifth Wavewill distill a variety of changes in the global marketplace that we can all see and feel into a coherent framework for understanding the future that is about to unfold.
