Name Cole Stryker
Location New York
First Post January 2008
Writer Cole Stryker is scholar of internet culture. Like some kind of geeked-out Indiana Jones, he slips into the underbelly of internet communities you may have never heard of, collects evidence of their strange and sometimes bizarre customs, and then emerges back in the sunlight to present his findings and their possible implications. His new book, Epic Win For Anonymous, is the latest collection of such anthropological findings. For fun, Cole enjoys eating boxes and boxes of pizza.
