Bill is working on his seventh book tentatively entitled “How the ThinkPad Changed The World–and Is Shaping The Future.” He is co-authoring the book with Arimasa Naitoh, who is considered the father of the Thinkpad notebook computer. The book will help mark the 25th anniversary of the ThinkPad’s introduction in 1992. Bill has traveled to Japan twice recently to meet Naitoh-san and gather material for the book. It is scheduled for publication in January 2017
Bill currently writes for three magazines–Compass, which is a thought leadership platform for Dassault Systemes (compassmag.3ds.com), Chief Executive magazine (chiefexecutive.net) and Strategy & Business (www.strategy-business.com).
He is engaged in a major upgrade of this website and his social media profile.
Bill will host the Overseas Press Club Foundation‘s annual scholarship luncheon on Feb. 26 at the Yale Club in Manhattan featuring Kathy Gannon, who is the Associated Press’ special correspondent for Afghanistan and Pakistan. Bill is president of the foundation, which grants scholarships and fellowships to college students who wish to become foreign corrrespondents. It is the largest program of its type in the world.
He is also dinner co-chairman for the Overseas Press Club‘s annual awards dinner, which will be held April 28 at the Mandarin-Oriental in New York. The keynote speaker is Dean Baquet of The New York Times.
