Author of The Big Switch: Rewiring the World from Edison to Google
A former executive editor of the Harvard Business Review, Nicholas Carr writes and speaks on technology, business, and culture. His 2004 book Does IT Matter? Information Technology and the Corrosion of Competitive Advantage, published by Harvard Business School Press, set off a worldwide debate about the role of computers in business. His new book, The Big Switch: Rewiring the World, from Edison to Google, examines the future of computing and its implications for business and society. He also edited and wrote the introduction for The Digital Enterprise, a book of HBR writings on the Internet, and contributed to World View, Organizing Business Knowledge, and When Good People Behave Badly.
Carr writes regularly for the Financial Times, Strategy & Business and The Guardian. His articles have also appeared in The New York Times, MIT Sloan Management Review, Wired, Business 2.0, The Banker, and Director. Since 2005, he has published the popular blog Rough Type. In 2005, Optimize magazine named him one of the leading thinkers on information technology, and in 2007 eWeek named him one of the 100 most influential people in IT. Earlier in his career, he was a principal at Mercer Management Consulting.
Carr has been a speaker at MIT, Harvard, Wharton, the Kennedy School of Government, Moscow State University, NASA, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, as well as at many industry, corporate, and professional events throughout the Americas, Europe, and Asia. He holds a B.A. from Dartmouth College and an M.A. in English literature from Harvard University.
