I'm a writer and academic, a fellow at Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet and Society. I've written extensively about the cultural history of libraries—chiefly in a book called Library, an Unquiet History (Norton 2003), but in many essays and articles in journals, newspapers, and magazines. More broadly, I write about language, nature, and technology for such venues as The Atlantic Monthly and the Boston Globe. I live in Boston's Jamaica Plain neighborhood with my wife, two kids, and an unruly garden.
