Anderson is the author of the New York Times bestselling books "The Long Tail" and "Free" as well as the new "Makers: The New Industrial Revolution." Awards include: Editor of the Year by Ad Age (2005). Named to the "Time 100," the newsmagazine's list of the 100 most influential people in the world (2007).

His background is in science, starting with studying physics and doing research at Los Alamos and culminating in six years at the two leading scientific journals, Nature and Science. Anderson says, "In my misspent youth (more of my twenties than I should admit) I was a bit player in the DC punk scene and amusingly, a band called REM."
