William Hertling is a writer, web strategist and programmer. His award-winning Singularity series, starting with Avogadro Corp, explores the emergence of artificial intelligence, coexistence of humans and smart machines, and the impact of social reputation, technological unemployment and other near-future issues. His new novels Kill Process and Kill Switch are technothrillers exploring data ownership, privacy, trust and personal freedom. Wired called his work "chilling and compelling," and his books are required reading in the U.S. Air Force's Future Combat Strategy course.
