Bob Stein
Director, Institute for the Future of the Book

Robert Stein was the founder of The Voyager Company. For 13 years he led the development of over 300 titles in The Criterion Collection, a series of definitive films on videodisc, and more than 75 CD ROM titles including the CD Companion to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Who Built America, and the Voyager edition of Macbeth. Previous to Voyager, Stein worked with Alan Kay in the Research Group at Atari on a variety of electronic publishing projects. Seven years ago, Stein started Night Kitchen to develop authoring tools for the next generation of electronic publishing. Currently he is a Senior Fellow at the London School of Economics and the Director of the Institute for the Future of the Book, a think & do tank based in London and New York aiming to understand (and hopefully influence) how intellectual discourse is changing as it shifts from printed pages to networked screens.
