Richard Neville co-launched the satirical Australian magazine, OZ. He later took the magazine to London, where it became the voice of the counterculture. He now lives in Sydney, where he combines his role as a social commentator (www.richardneville.com) with the business of being a futurist (www.richardnevillefuturist.com). Neville's memoir of the underground years, Hippie, Hippie, Shake, has been turned into a motion picture, slated for release in 2009.
