He is the author of the 2007 international hit "The Cult of the Amateur: How Today's Internet is Killing Our Culture" and is currently writing a book entitled "Digital Vertigo: Anxiety, Loneliness and Inequality in the Social Media Age". His background is one of a digital media entrepreneur and Silicon Valley insider.
