Philip Pullman

I recently had the good fortune to collaborate on stage a couple of times with author Philip Pullman (His Dark Materials Trilogy, The Good Man Jesus and the Scoundrel Christ, Lyra's Oxford, etc).  He and I first met to discuss Sum at Queen Elizabeth Hall in November of 2009.  Miranda Richardson and Jarvis Cocker gave live readings of Sum stories at the event, and pre-recorded readings of stories were provided by Stephen Fry and Clarke Peters.

More recently Philip and I were on stage together at the Charleston Festival of Literature in the south of England. The event was moderated by author and documentary filmmaker Bill Nicholson. See a review of the event here.  

I can't say enough about Philip: he is smart, generous, terrifically talented, and a pleasure to collaborate with.

David's iPad app "Why the Net Matters, or Six Ways to Avert the Collapse of Civilization" was recently called a "superbook" by the New York Times Magazine. For a taste of the argument, read David's article in WIRED or watch a video of his talk at the Long Now Foundation. Don't have an iPad? The manuscript is now available as an eBook.
