The Net, the universal computer network 75 years from now, collapses unexpectedly and completely. Chaos reigns all over the world. Millions of people die. Billions are in danger.

Hermann Maurer is an Austrian computer scientist, serving as Professor of Computer Science at the Graz University of Technology. He has supervised over 40 dissertations, written more than 20 books and over 600 scientific articles, and started or been involved with a number of companies. He thinks that future applications of computers can barely be described using today's terminology, and so employs metaphors such as telepathy and teleportation when discussing them.
