The Future of Publishing, Open Source Projects, Digital Annotation, and Science Fiction.


I moved to Berkeley from England where I ran a record label. I'm also a science fiction writer. 23rd Century Romance comes out August 2013—a sci-fi romantic comedy about the future of sex and relationships.


What I'm researching/working on at the iSchool:

  • The future of publishing. 
  • Why books are the bastard child of digital media.
  • Copyright law.
  • The power of digital annotation: https:/hypothes.is 
  • How to run open source projects. 
  • Epub.js
