I'm a long-time journalist, who has interviewed everyone from the Ramones to Bill Gates. I spent my early years as rock critic (Rolling Stone, Spin) before moving on to the wild world of the Silicon Valley, covering tech while launching publications like Business 2.0, and editing for Wired, Forbes, Red Herring. I jumped into the education market to work with filmmaker George Lucas on 'Edutopia,' a publication about improving K-12 public education. Now I'm jazzed to be working with TED and Chris (again) on TED Books, as we move literature from the 19th to the 21st century.
How tech dramatically changes business and society. First the skeptics deny that change will happen. Then they fight it. Then they accept it, saying they knew all along that it was inevitable.
We need to focus more on wisdom and insight, rather than just developing the next shinier and newer version of technology.
Something you're excited about. Really excited about.

Been going to the conference for 12 years. Always a highlight of the year. TED is electricity for the soul.
