Hello everyone. My name is Justin Pickard, and I’m the most recent addition to Futurismic‘s blogging team.
This time last week, I submitted the final pieces of work for an undergraduate degree in International Relations and Anthropology. Over three years of university life, I’ve developed a diverse set of interests – penning essays on everything from Thai spirit mediums through to ‘cyborg urbanisation‘, copyright piracy, and the geopolitics of the apocalypse.
I put it down to low latent inhibition.
Alongside the tangential academics, I’ve found the time to tackle National Novel Writing Month, spent a summer researching labour activism and the internet. and umpired a role-playing campaign set in the Transhuman Space universe.
Right, that’s probably enough about me – let’s get this show on the road!
