Steven Levy, “America’s premier technology journalist” (Siva Vaidhyanathan, The Washington Post), is the author most recently of In the Plex: How Google Thinks, Works, and Shapes Our Lives (2011). Writing in the New York Review of Books, James Gleick called it, “the most authoritative [history of Google] to date and in many ways the most entertaining.” Levy achieved international renown for his now-classic 1984 book, Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution, which was republished in a 25th Anniversary edition in 2009, and which PC Magazine, in a recent issue, named the “Best Sci-Tech Book of the last 20 years.” Currently a Senior Writer for Wired, Levy formerly served as Senior Editor and Chief Technology Correspondent for Newsweek.
