Burt manages the creative and editorial side of The Daily Cannibal, leaving the actual operation and production responsibilities to a bass player named Irwin, along with a bunch of kids in CA who produce the graphics, video, framework and other stuff. Burt once wrote an honors thesis, and has avoided anything involving more than a few hundred words ever since. No one read the thesis except the three professors compelled to grade it, and they retired shortly after the experience.
Mr. Adams brings a measure of skeptical compassion to topics of interest to our readers, and offers a more contemplative perspective to our other sometimes strident voices. His primary focus is on ethics, which means that he plows a very wide furrow indeed, where his seeds of wisdom are fertilized in the usual manner.
CfE has, in no particular order, has:

- published a few novels, including his latest, Better Than Heisenberg, the world’s first electronic novel
- cooked several thousand fantastic meals.
Hari’s beat encompasses the environment, health and “wellness,” which we still think is probably not really a word.
Hari sports an Ivy honors degree (modesty forbids disclosure, but we’ve checked, and it’s a really, really good one), and has done considerable postgraduate work in a dazzling array of different fields. This cross-disciplinary experience allows him to bring a number of useful perspectives to any topic, often simultaneously.
Hatto is one of a growing number of USC film school alumni disgracing their degree by exploiting the crassly commercial aspects of the moving image instead of enlightening mankind. His remarkable insight into trends and why people fall for them adds a note of whimsy to our otherwise dry and serious mien, and helps us take ourselves more lightly, if that were possible.
Nemo has spent most of his life prowling around the steam tunnels of finance, explaining perhaps his profound disinclination to take anything at face value. He believes that good questions outnumber good answers by a considerable degree, and that the most useful two words in any language are “prove it.”
