About this author

(From his website)

I’m currently an articles editor at Fast Company magazine, where I write and edit features on innovation and technology. Between 2004 and 2011, I worked as a writer at The New York Times Magazine, where I wrote about science, business, society, and (sometimes) economics. In March 2012 Penguin Press published The Idea Factory: Bell Labs and the Great Age of American Innovation. This is my first book.

I’ve travelled to California and Silicon Valley more times than I can count, but I’ve spent all of my life on the east coast. These days, I live in New Jersey with my wife and kids.
