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 a world of cameras looking back, cyber-warfare and global warming. The Postman portrayed a post-apocalyptic world in which heroes are called upon to restore civilization. The Transparent Society shows how we can we balance privacy, secrecy and freedom. I speak frequently about the fascinating future that lies just beyond this horizon.
