My name is Ronald C. Burkhardt, but you can call me ‘Ron’.
You can peruse my experience page to find out a little more. You can also connect with me via LinkedIn (and eventually others) here. I am also a periodic contributor to (and designer and webmaster of) the group blog of my good friend Anthony W. Orlando at Trading 8s.
My interest – as the tagline of this blog states – is the intersection of culture, work, knowledge, and technology. I hope to leverage this interest for future opportunities, either academically or professionally. In the meantime, I’ll use this space to explore those areas.
