Mickey McManus is President, CEO, and Principal of MAYA Design, a technology design and innovation lab focused on “taming complexity.” He spearheaded the launch of MAYA’s Pervasive Computing practice to help organizations kick-start innovation around business challenges in a connected world where computing devices outnumber people. Mickey leads a team of cognitive psychologists, ethnographers, computer scientists, engineers, mathematicians, visual and industrial designers, architects, game designers, and filmmakers. This team designs for people in a trillion-node world whose scale and complexity will dwarf that of today’s Internet. To explore the potential impact of a trillion networked nodes on individuals and businesses, Mickey co-authored “Trillions: Thriving in the Emerging Information Ecology,” published by John Wiley & Sons. The book is a field guide to a future where computers become human literate and information is not confined to any particular “box” — instead being freely accessible in the ambient environment. John C. Abell, former New York Bureau Chief of Wired and founding editor of Reuter.com noted that, “With ‘Trillions’ authors Lucas, Ballay and McManus belly up to the bar alongside futurists Alvin Toffler, Kevin Kelly and Arthur C. Clark, offering a vision so compellingly argued you’ll only be surprised if it doesn’t happen.”
