Ryan McConnell has just finished classes for his Master's degree in Electronic Publishing at City University London. There, he became the official blogger for the Informatics Department. Originally from Oregon, and now fresh from the Big Smoke, he has made his way to Indianapolis to work for Pearson. In his spare time, Ryan enjoys reading the short stories of Flannery O'Connor, watching excellent television sitcoms, and swimming, preferably in rivers. He loves to play Nintendo games, enjoys sugary snacks a bit too much, and is excited to see how technology will continue to shape the way we consume and understand media.
