Hi. I’m Ned, and I’m interested in… everything from context-aware technology to post-modern theology to genetic engineering to bicycle hacking to medieval manuscripts. I have led smart technology teams at Adobe, Microsoft, Xerox PARC and Intel. I have written several books — most recently the bestselling novel The Eagle Tree and the forthcoming Wilderness of Mirrors, an SF novel about the NSA.
