Author

Byron’s books explore the intersection of technology, history and technology, and how that intersection has defined our past and continues to influence our tomorrows.

In Byron’s most recent book, “We Are Agora,” Byron looks at superorganisms, such as ant hills and bee colonies, and considers if humans could also be part of a superorganism. He asks, are we unknowingly parts of the inner workings of a larger being? And, if so? As our cells fail to understand us, are we also unaware of what compels our behavior? In his prior book, “Stories, Dice, and Rocks That Think,” Byron argues that our ability to imagine the future and recall the past allowed us to escape the perpetual present that all other living creatures are trapped in.  Byron has also authored “Wasted, How We Squander Time, Money, and Natural Resources and What We Can Do About It,” “The Fourth Age: How Technology and the Internet Will End Ignorance, Disease, Hunger, Poverty, and War,” and “Infinite Progress, How the Internet and Technology Will End Ignorance, Disease, Poverty, Hunger, and War.”
