Enter, stage left

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.

More recently, I’ve been blogging and, as one of the Friday Flash Fictioneers, formally declared war on writer’s block. Needless to say, the battle continues.

Right, that’s probably enough about me – let’s get this show on the road!
