Howard Rheingold examines the "technologies of cooperation" and the impact of the convergence of the moblie phone, PC and the Internet.


UC Berkeley, Stanford

Noted author and commentator Howard Rheingold has a proven record of accurate technology and social forecasting over two decades of syndicated columns, bestselling books, and pioneering online enterprises. Now he's on to the next and biggest thing: the marriage of mobile phone, PC, and wireless Internet that is changing the way we meet, mate, entertain, govern, and conduct business.



No armchair futurist, Rheingold was founding Executive Editor of Hotwired, the first commercial webzine where the web-based discussion forum and the online banner ad were invented. He is the recipient of a 2008 MacArthur Knowledge-Networking Grant through the Foundation's Digital Media and Learning Competition. Rheingold has appeared on Today, Good Morning America, ABC Primetime Live, CNN, CBS News, NBC News, Macneill-Lehrer Report, NPR’s Fresh Air and Marketplace. He has keynoted in a dozen countries and lectured at Harvard, MIT, Oxford, and Stanford.

His book Smart Mobs, named one of the “Big Ideas books of 2002” by The New York Times, chronicles the new forms of collective action and cooperation made possible by mobile communications, pervasive computing, and the Internet.
