He is frequently quoted in the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Business Week, USA Today and other publications, and has appeared on CNN, NPR, CBS and other television and radio networks.

His previous books include "The Invisible Web: Uncovering Information Sources Search Engines Can't See" (with Gary Price) from CyberAge Books; The McGraw-Hill CD ROM Handbook, and The Elements of Basic, The Elements of Cobol and The Elements of Pascal from John Wiley & Sons.

Chris has more than 25 years of experience in developing multimedia and Internet applications. Early in his career, he worked on prototypes of many products and concepts that are now commonplace, such as CD ROM multimedia technologies and interactive cable television.

Chris holds a master's degree in Interactive Educational Technology from Stanford University and a bachelor's degree in Visual Arts and Communications from the University of California, San Diego. Chris has been unsuccessful in his attempts to persuade Stanford to strip his degree so he can join the founders of Yahoo and Google in boasting about *not* graduating from the university.
