We don't yet have an abstract, please check the BLU website for updates over the next few days. Here are a couple of paragraphs from Doc's BIO at searls.com: Doc Searls is Senior Editor of Linux Journal, co-author of The Cluetrain Manifesto, and holds fellowships with both the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and the Center for Information Technology and Society at the University of California, Santa Barbara. In The World is Flat, Thomas L. Friedman calls Doc "one of the most respected technology writers in America." J.D. Lasica, author of Darknet and proprietor of OurMedia, calls Doc "one of the deep thinkers in the blog movement." In 2005, Doc won the Google O'Reilly Open Source Award for Best Communicator.
Doc Searls is a lifelong journalist who has covered Linux since Linux Journal began in 1994 (and Linux itself was at v 1.0), and served as an editor there for 24 years, most recently as editor-in-chief. He is co-author of The Cluetrain Manifesto, author of The Intention Economy, a fellow of the Center for Information Technology & Society (CITS) at the University of California, Santa Barbara, an alumni fellow of the Berkman Klein Center at Harvard University (where he continues to direct ProjectVRM), as well as a visiting scholar at NYU and Indiana University.
