His many publications include: A Practical Introduction To Computer Graphics, High Resolution Computer Graphics Using C, Information Systems Management, Advanced Graphics on VGA and XGA Cards with Borland C++, and Intelligence: Logical or Biological. With this expert grasp of his subject, Ian is able to speak with authority on the global consequences of IT; applications of new technology - risks and opportunities; organizational and national IT strategies; strategic information systems; applied computing in organizations; computer graphics; and multi-media information environments.

A recent profile in The London Times, described him as the "Angell of Doom", in reference to his prediction of the painful changes in the cyberspace age - such as the end of the nation state.

Ian Angell's growing reputation comes at the culmination of ten years work developing a new perspective on information systems, stressing that the social, economic and organizational issues are more important than the technological ones.
