The book concludes with solutions that could be initiated in the next few years which could change the implications of these technologies from negative to positive. This book carries a message about our humanity and our reach toward higher purposes.
We are spirit, energy, atoms, molecules, chemicals, cells, body organs and components and then we are body. These new technologies attack the very essence of who we are - they attack the very foundation of our being by wounding the human spirit.
The computer problems which have captured the attention of the world as we leave this millennium have made us all question technology and its impact on the world. We will not know the results for a few weeks of what the transition means and it is not the subject of this book - technology is the subject. In each potential disaster there are even greater possibilities for solutions which redeem the human spirit and will help propel us into the next century. This book is about those solutions.

About the Authors
Dr. Nick Begich is the eldest son of the late United States Congressman from Alaska, Nick Begich Sr., and political activist Pegge Begich. He is well known in Alaska for his own political activities. He was twice elected President of both the Alaska Federation of Teachers and the Anchorage Council of Education. He has been pursuing independent research in the sciences and politics for most of his adult life. Begich received his doctorate in traditional medicine from The Open International University for Complementary Medicines in November, 1994.
He co-authored the book Angels Don't Play This HAARP; Advances in Tesla Technology, and wrote Towards a New Alchemy: The Millennium Science. His latest book Earth Rising - The Revolution: Toward a Thousand Years of Peace was co-authored with James Roderick in December, 1999. He is also the editor of Earthpulse Flashpoints, a continuing new-science book series. Begich has published articles in science, politics and education and is a well known lecturer, having presented throughout the United States and in nineteen countries. He has been featured as a guest on thousands of radio broadcasts reporting on his research activities including new technologies, health and earth science related issues. He has also appeared on dozens of television documentaries and other programs throughout the world including BBC-TV, CBC-TV, TeleMundo, and others.
Begich has served as an expert witness and speaker before the European Parliament. He has spoken on various issues for groups representing citizen concerns, statesmen and elected officials, scientists and others. He is the publisher and co-owner of Earthpulse Press and is also under contract as Tribal Administrator for the Chickaloon Village Council, a federally recognized American Indian Tribe of the Athabascan Indian Nation.
James Roderick is a 30-year resident of Alaska, working variously as a fisherman, gold-miner and trapper. His investigations into military toxics in Alaska led to stories in the press about chemical weapons disposal in Alaska's waters, nuclear power plant contamination in central Alaska and the military's illegal testing of Alaska natives and Eskimos with radioactive Iodine. His investigations continue.
The site, Wemedia.com, hopes to give home-bound disabled people the ability to purchase goods and perform daily tasks online.
"We Media's goal is to empower people with disabilities, their families and friends by providing both mobility and access to the services this population has long been denied," Cary Fields, We Media's chief executive, said in a statement.
The company's motives aren't entirely altruistic. According to Fields, the disabled represent a $1 trillion-a-year consumer market.
We Media's Web site is another example of a Web business targeting a specific demographic or interest group. Increasingly, these "affinity portals," as they are known in the industry, are luring users as well as advertisers away from larger, more general Web sites such as Yahoo, Excite, Lycos and Go.com.
Affinity portals hope to attract users interested in specific topics with deeper content and the ability to communicate with other interested users. An influx of targeted traffic also gets the attention of advertisers who specialize in a site's focus.
We Media will primarily feature information for disabled people to find services and products. The site will include sections focusing on employment services, education, sports coverage, Web broadcasting, community and real estate.
