This talk was initially given at the O'Reilly Emerging Technology Conference [ http://conferences.oreillynet.com/cs/et2004 ], along with a set of slides that, for copyright reasons (ironic!) can't be released alongside of this file. However, you will find, interspersed in this text, notations describing the places where new slides should be loaded, in [square-brackets].

I'm a kid. I am a new reader.  I like chapter books.

I am the Hivemaster of LitHive and an avid reader and a passionate fan of biographies, histories, and science fiction and fantasy literature in particular.  I love books --  both the old fashioned tree-based version and the new-fangled electronic variety. In spite of owning enough electronic devices to occupy a small family of octopuses, I tend to read most often on my trusty phone.  I love old book stores and elaborate bookshelves and somehow still manage to own far more books than I could possibly ever read given any reasonable life expectancy.I am an alumus of UC Berkeley (Go Bears!) and The Wharton School of Business.  When I am not reading a great story, carrying out my hivemaster duties, or being a family man, I work at Skype.
