Mr. Rogers is completing a two-year tenure as futurist-in-residence for The New York Times and also writes the Practical Futurist column for MSNBC.

His five books have been published worldwide, optioned for film and television, and chosen by the Book of the Month Club.

In 1993, Mr. Rogers produced the world's first CD-ROM newsmagazine for Newsweek, going on to develop interactive areas on Prodigy, America Online, and then a series of Internet sites including the award-winning Parents’ Guide to Children’s Software, which also appeared in book form.
