Steve Tomasula, novelist, critic and professor of English at Notre Dame University, in Notre Dame, Ind., discussing access to digital technology and his decision to write books specifically and solely for iPads;

Dorothy Santos, writer, editor and curator based in San Francisco, discussing gender issues—especially the dearth of women—in authoritative positions in the design of digital technology;
