Why do traditional paper books remain so popular, especially for deep, immersive reading? Are some people simply too stubborn and nostalgic to adapt to new technologies? Perhaps it's because paper books are themselves a highly sophisticated technology, one that's uniquely good at stimulating focus and concentration.

freelance writer and editor
Introduction
I'm a freelance writer and editor.

I've written about science and technology since 1987. I've covered nanotechnology, quantum computing, robotics, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, supercomputers, Big Data, the Internet, renewable energy and climate science, among other topics. I've been a regular contributor to Wired.com and CNet's Crave. I've freelanced for Discover, Scientific American, Nature Reports: Climate Change, Data Informed and The Boston Globe, among other publications.

I also write about journalism and public policy for Columbia University's Case Consortium @ Columbia.
