Brian G. Root read my last post and forwarded this on to me about Lanier's background. Apparently the guy's worked with Duncan Sheik, so what do I know?

Seriously... I'm not sure how much backstory I need on Lanier. If his theories are ill-founded and full of shit, why should his curriculum vitae convince me his arguments have merit? Worse yet, his c.v. fills my belly with a nasty patch of sour grapes -- how can such a bad writer be a guest editor at Spin? (Rhetorical question.)
