About the Author
Amber Case studies the symbiotic interactions between humans and machines -- and considers how our values and culture are being shaped by living lives increasingly mediated by high technology.
Case's 2010 TED talk on technology and the new version of homo sapiens has over 1.2 million views; she keynoted SXSW in 2012 and speaks regularly at conferences and workshops all over the world. Previously, she was the CEO of and co-founder of Geoloqi, a location-based software company acquired by Esri in 2012.
That year she was named one of National Geographic's Emerging Explorers and made Inc Magazine's 30 under 30. Case is an advocate of privacy, data ownership and calm technology.
Dubbed a "digital philosopher," by Fast Company magazine, she is the author of An Illustrated Dictionary of Cyborg Anthropology. Case lives and works in Portland, Oregon. You can follow her on Twitter @caseorganic or at caseorganic.com.
