Story
Introduction
David Scott Lewis is the head “Lecturer & Guidance Counselor” at Beyond English, a firm dedicated to helping the brightest high school students in north China attend Tier 1 American undergraduate colleges (including liberal arts colleges), with a focus on those students pursuing studies in the humanities and social sciences.  Lewis’ academic background spans from Caltech and Stanford to Harvard Kennedy; his professional background includes executive positions at Microsoft, Samsung, Oracle and the IT outsourcing arm of Tsinghua University, China’s top-ranked university. Model for the lead character “David L. Lightman” in the hacker classic movie, WarGames, Lewis has keynoted sessions at a CIA Information Operations Center summit and at DEFCON, the world’s largest hackers convention. He has spoken widely and chaired sessions on nanoenergy, the Semantic Web, an APEC summit on SMEs, a grid security conference, China’s annual IT outsourcing conference (keynoting once and speaking at two other annual events), and was a co-founder of the Caltech/MIT Enterprise Forum. He is co-hosting the "New Books in Classics" podcasting channel with Christopher Krebs, Associate Professor of Classics at Stanford University, and will be the inaugural host for the forthcoming “New Books in Intellectual History” channel.
