John Brockman is a cultural impresario, whose career has encompassed the avant-garde art world, science, books, software, and the Internet. He is publisher and editor of Edge.org, the highly acclaimed website devoted to discussions of cutting edge science by many of the world's brilliant thinkers, the leaders of what he has termed "the third culture", and CEO of Brockman, Inc. the leading international literary agency for serious nonfiction authors such as Richard Dawkins, Daniel Dennett, Jared Diamond, Brian Greene, Steven Pinker, and Nassim Taleb. He has the distinction of being the only person to be profiled on Page One of both The New York Sunday Times "Arts & Leisure" and The New York Times "Science Times". Included in his works as author and/or editor are By the Late John Brockman; The Third Culture; Digerati: Encounters with the Cyber Elite; Curious Minds; and The New Humanists: Science at the Edge. In addition, he is editor of a series of books based on the Edge Annual Question: What We Believe but Cannot Prove; What is Your Dangerous Idea?; What are You Optimistic About?; What Have You Changed Your Mind About?; This Will Change Everything, and new newest volume Is The Internet Changing the Way You Think? Software pioneer David Gelernter calls him "a bizarre, brilliant, bulldozer of a thinker who has done as much as anyone, anywhere, to shape today's intellectual landscape." And, according to La Stampa, he is "a kind of thinker that does not exist in Europe". His legendary annual dinner is the most sought after invitation of the year ("Present were the owners of Google, Twitter, Bill Gates ... Do I need to drop more names? A bomb at dinner and we would lose much of a certain creative intelligence that drives our world and our future, or the future that these people are creating for all of us." O Globo, Brasil).
