Dr. Andrew Burt (www.aburt.com), former Vice President of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, Inc., has published dozens of short stories and one novel, chairs SFWA's Copyright Issues and Electronic Piracy committees, is Chairman of the Copyright Owners' Control of Access (COCOA) Association (www.CopyrightAccess.com), and herds workshops, including Critters (www.critters.org), a cozy 5,000 member writers' workshop specializing in science fiction, fantasy, and horror, also home to other writers' resources, such as the Black Holes response time tracker. Outside of science fiction, he's a computer science professor (research in computer security, privacy, networking, and free-speech/social issues), Co-Director of the Institute for Digital Security at the University of Denver, founder of Nyx.net, the world's first free Internet service, and a technology consultant/author/speaker. For a hobby, he constructs solutions to all the world's problems. Fortunately -- nobody listens. He lives in the Rockies with his wife and their three parrots.
