The past twenty years have seen many breathtaking changes in printing technologies as we progressed from typewriters to digital presses. This pace shows no signs of slowing down. Digital printing will continue to evolve.In this talk, the future of ink jet will be explored. To date, ink jet, the major technology for home printing has not dominated in the area of networked printers. The reasons for this, as well as the strengths and limitations of ink jet will be explored. The improvements that will be necessary to expand ink jet to its full potential across a range of applications will be discussed. We will look to the future and see how hard copy will deal with the world of the internet and cyberspace. Finally, we will try to speculate where this will all lead.
