Adam Tullman - Editor, aka "turmis"

He studied American History and Spanish at Northwestern University while administrating the Novell network and helping various professors with their computer woes. He is in his first year of law school and trying as hard as he can to know everything about cyberlaw issues. He finds cyberlaw fascinating because it is all new and constantly changing. Adam was born and went to high school in California, learned to walk and talk in New Jersey, went to college in Chicago and has no idea "where he is from." He hopes to go in to some sort of intellectual property litigation and to have many more opportunities to talk about himself as though he wasn't in the room.

She is increasingly interested in the impact of technology on social and cultural life, and is in the (very) early stages of writing a book on the subject; she hopes it will be half as incisive and well-written as Michael Lewis's Next: The Future Just Happened [ http://www.wwnorton.com/catalog/spring01/002037.htm ].
