Andrew McAfee (@amcafee) studies how digital technologies are changing business, the economy, and society. He's written a couple books on the subject. His next one, The Second Machine Age: Work, Progress, and Prosperity in a Future of Brilliant Technologies (co-authored with Erik Brynjolfsson) will be published by Norton early in 2014.
He blogs, tweets, and writes for publications including Harvard Business Review, The Economist, The Wall St. Journal, and The New York Times. He's talked about his work at TED, on 60 Minutes, and in front of lots of smaller audiences. He was educated at Harvard and MIT, where he is the associate director of the Center for Digital Business.
He watches too much Red Sox baseball, doesn't ride his motorcycle enough, and starts his weekends with the NYT Saturday crossword.
