CBSNews.com Monday launched The Tomorrow Show, a weekly webcast featuring CBS News contributor and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart alumnus Mo Rocca speculating on what life may be like in the future in terms of technology, food, pop culture, the environment and more.
The initial installment of The Tomorrow Show (below), which is sponsored by Intel, looks at paper and other uses for it with the digital age and new technology diminishing its traditional uses.
Rocca is currently a regular contributor to CBS News’ Sunday Morning with Charles Osgood and a regular panelist on NPR’s Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!.

I’ve always found it impossible to live in the present. But living in the past is just so unproductive and unattractive. It’s the best way to ruin a relationship. That’s why I choose to live in the future. It’s exciting but risky terrain. As a journalist, I’m accountable for all the things we say will happen 150 years from now.
CBSNews.com vice president Mark Larkin added:
There is no better person than Mo Rocca to take our audience behind the curtain and look at the endless possibilities of the future. The Tomorrow Show will entertain and inform our audience, and we’re thrilled to add it to our expanding lineup of original content. We’re committed to delivering news and information that is unique and keeps our audience one step ahead.
