In 1984 Kevin published and edited the Whole Earth Review, a journal of unorthodox technical news. He co-founded the on-going Hackers’ Conference, and was involved with the launch of the WELL, a pioneering online service, as well as co-founding the All Species Foundation, a non-profit organization aimed at cataloguing and identifying every living species on earth.

He has written numerous books, including the best-selling New Rules for the New Economy, and Out of Control (branded “required reading for all executives” by Fortune Magazine). He has also written for all the major international magazines and newspapers including Time; The Economist; GQ and The Wall Street Journal.

Kevin serves on the board of the Long Now Foundation, a non-profit group dedicated to fostering long-term responsibility to counter the surprisingly short-term view of most international businesses.
