One of the leading experts on the impact of technology on business and society, Michael Rogers is an interactive media pioneer, novelist and journalist.  He currently serves as Futurist-in-Residence for the New York Times Company.  He is someone who will be seated right next to you in a conference and talking to you, and when it is time for his address, he will simply get up,  go on the podium and continue talking with you rather than talk at you. In his own words, a Practical Futurist is someone who just does not make predictions about the future but also takes steps to make it happen. more
