I’m an author, tech columnist and indie blogger. I founded the technology blog ReadWriteWeb and led the site from 2003-2012 (see media citations).

My goal as a writer is to articulate what’s next in technology and what it means for society.


My science fiction novel about the future of VR, Presence, was published in September 2016.

My nonfiction book about health technology, Trackers, was published in December 2014.

I’m currently working on my second science fiction novel, on the topic of Artificial Intelligence. Sign up to my author newsletter for progress updates.
