Steve Newcomb (Coolheads Consulting) was a member of the steering committee for  "EP2010: The Future of
Electronic Publishing Towards 2010", a study funded by the European Union that recommended ways to
maximize Europe's competitive posture in publishing, content, and knowledge.   As a leader in the technology
of knowledge transparency, Steve is connected with projects of several national governments that are pioneering
