Michael Rogers is vice president of editorial research and development for the electronic publishing division of The Washington Post Company, as well as a novelist, managing editor of Newsweek InterActive, and contributing technology editor for Newsweek. His novel, non-fiction books, Rolling Stone and Newsweek articles and interactive CD-ROMs and on-line services-have tracked the technology revolution, from Silicon Valley factories and Cambridge biotech laboratories, to Japanese robot cities and the futurist think tanks of multinational corporations.

His pioneering work with Newsweek InterActive—the first general-interest CD-ROM magazine, widely regarded as a model for the future of interactive television—has been chronicled in places ranging from the New York Times and USA Today to the Columbia Journalism Review, the Today show and NBC Nightly News. Recently, he was executive producer of the Newsweek Parent's Guide to Children's Software website, as well as working on PoliticsNow, a joint venture of Newsweek, the Washington Post and ABC News.

Rogers was born in California and studied fiction writing and physics at Stanford University. He has published five books—three novels, a collection of short fiction, and one non-fiction book about genetic engineering—all of which explore the impact of technology on human life. His books have been published in various editions worldwide, selected by Book-of-the-Month Club, and optioned for film and television.

His fiction, nonfiction, criticism and photography have appeared in dozens of magazines, ranging from Look and Esquire to Playboy and People, and in numerous anthologies. He was founding editor of Outside magazine. He won the American Association for the Advancement of Science Award for Distinguished Science Writing, for coverage of a total eclipse in the Sahara Desert, and shared a National Headliner Award for the Chernobyl disaster. His assignments have taken him to "Science City" in Japan, horseback riding through inner China and hiking above the Arctic Circle in Alaska.

Over the past decade, Rogers has spoken about the impact of technology to audiences ranging from the general public to venture capitalists, bankers, corporate executives, public relations experts, management consultants, publishers, physicians and educators in the United States, Europe and Asia. He is currently at work on his next novel.
