Age of Context chronicles the five converging forces that promise to change virtually every aspect of our lives: social media, mobile, data, sensors and location-based technology. The authors posit that these five forces form a new generation of personalized technology that knows us better than our closest friends do. The resulting convergent superforce is so powerful that it is ushering in an era the co-authors call the Age of Context. The book is available now on Amazon at www.amazon.com
