New "Architects of Tomorrow" Ebook is Available!

The average American reads at 300 words per minute. My newly released book of interviews with a dozen fascinating high-tech luminaries, “Architects of Tomorrow, Volume 2,” is roughly 55,000 words. That’s over three hours of awesome brain food for only $1.99. The average U.S. movie ticket price is now about $8. So seeing, say, Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 would only “entertain” you for half the time, cost four times as much, and might even leave you feeling temporarily lobotomized. In contrast, AoT Vol. 2 is an awesome value for anyone even mildly interested in the history of technology, the online sites and devices that now fill our world, or our technological future. Whether as a treat for yourself or a gift for someone(s) you know, please consider my ridiculously low-priced yet undeniably thought-provoking Kindle ebook. Any social media recommendations and/or reviews on the book’s Amazon page would be like a special holiday present and fill my heart with yuletide joy -- thank you!

The interviewees in Volume 2 are:

Nolan Bushnell, Founder Of Atari
David “Dadi” Perlmutter, Godfather Of The Modern Processor
Shari Steele, Executive Director & President Of The EFF
Jon S. von Tetzchner, Co-Founder & CEO Of Opera Software

Peter Rojas, Co-Founder Of Gizmodo & Engadget
Mark Re, Seagate’s Senior Vice President of Research
Tim Westergren, Founder Of Pandora
