Convergence in general

In 1991 John Scully, then CEO of Apple Computer gave an presentation at Harvard University on his vision for the convergence of digital devices. He outlined here the coming convergence of Computers, Consumers Electronics and Telecom. Scully's Vision still holds today and he was one of the first that mapped out the future of convergence in the 1990's.

Convergence of Telecom and IT Industry
The convergence of Telecoms and computers have already happened with the major installations of IP telephony in the corporate world and the broadband installation of IP telephone over broadband in the home. Also the popularity of the Skype internet phone program have in many ways altered the cause for modern telephony and its integration with the computer industry.
