It is one of those fun little ironies of technology & media that there are two unrelated people named Chris Anderson in the business, both high profile and both with publishing backgrounds. One Chris Anderson runs the prominent TED conference, and one Chris Anderson writes books (like “The Long Tail”) and runs Wired magazine. The two look nothing alike, and both are friends of mine, but simply having the same name is the source for lots of merriment & regular confusion.
Today’s example? Vanity Fair’s new list of The Next Establishment which includes the TED Chris Anderson’s bio, and even says he is not to be confused with the Wired Chris Anderson, but still has the Wired Chris Anderson’s photo.
