Richard Ford Burley
A freelance writer, mercenary academic, and problem-solver-for-hire, I’m also the owner of precisely one cat. My day job is finishing up a PhD in English at Boston College, where I write about remix theory and medieval literature. I also moonlight as the Deputy Managing Editor of Ledger, the first peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the study of cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology, hosted at the University of Pittsburgh. When I’m not doing either of those, I run a team blog dedicated to science, technology, skepticism, feminism, and futurism calling itself This Week In Tomorrow; I work on ideation challenges over at Innocentive.com; and I furiously scribble away at fiction or poetry in a mad attempt to share my ideas with the world. My first novel, Mouse, will be published later this year by Prospective Press.
