The lone English major in a family of computer scientists, Julia Hayton is a book-devouring MLS student by day and a digital evangelist by night. She thinks her generation's greatest question is how to best take advantage of the internet's potential, and is fascinated by the challenge of organizing inconceivably vast expanses of information to lead to actual knowledge. She won creative writing prizes for short stories and a play while earning her B.A. from Smith College, is currently pursuing her MLS at Simmons College, where she also works at the GSLIS Technology Lab, and can explain sub-prime derivatives and credit default swaps using spoons and salt-shakers.
