Review Board

Greg Aden

Greg Aden is the President of NetRead, and Founder of NetRead's Writer-In-Residence Program. Deluded by friends and partners into believing that metadata is sexy, Greg still writes of such notions. Increasing the cast of characters is one of many goals for NetRead, and adding a creative force in the Metadata Suite simply has to be a great idea.

Prior to OCLC, Cindy was Director of Search Experience for Corbis and managed catalog operations for She is the recipient of the Ballard-by-the-Sea award, given annually by a private endowment in La Jolla, California, for neighborhood beautification.

Jason Flores-Williams

Jason Flores-Williams, novelist and journalist, was the political writer for High Times magazine during the Republican National Convention. The Last Stand of Mr. America, his third novel, is published by Canongate in the UK, Grove in the US, with rights recently sold to Russia. His first play, The Dinner Party, was published in 2007 in Post Road magazine.

"I wrote my first novel, The End of The West, on Greg Aden's computer at his pad on Ocean Beach in San Francisco. The only time I'd break from the writing is to go surfing with him and Pete Alcorn. Out there on our boards, the city rising and falling with the swell, we talked life, books, soul, and art. From NetRead and novels, to resistance and life - we caught waves that keep on rolling."
