Nick Bilton is the lead technology writer for the New York Times Bits blog and a reporter for the paper. At the Times, he has also worked in the research and development labs, helping chart the path for the future of news. Bilton is also an adjunct professor for New York University's interactive telecommunication program and lectures regularly around the world.

 

In I Live in the Future and Here's How it Works: How Your World, Work, and Brain are Being Creatively Disrupted, Bilton provides a new and often counterintuitive understanding of how a radically changed media world is influencing human behavior. For example, he explains why social networks, the openness of the Internet, and handy new gadgets are not just vehicles for telling the world what you had for breakfast but are becoming the foundation for "anchoring communities" that tame information overload and help determine what news and information to trust and consume and what to ignore.
