David Brin

How will we shape the future - how will the future shape us? My novels explore humanity's role in an ever-changing world. Existence asks if we're alone in the cosmos and offers a unique take on First Contact. Earth foresaw cyber-warfare and global warming. The Postman showed a post-apocalyptic world in which heroes are called upon to restore civilization.

The Transparent Society discusses how we can we balance privacy, secrecy and freedom. I have appeared on shows such as Life After People and The Universe. I speak frequently about the fascinating future that lies just beyond this horizon -- on surveillance and privacy and space exploration.
