This paper presents the author's views on what the information and communication industry will be like at the start of the third millennium, with emphasis on the implications to information and communication theorists. The main conclusions are that communication will play a greater role in Society in the third millennium. Communication Theory will be more concerned with channel complexity than with channel capacity. More communication theorists will be needed, and they will be more broadly trained.
