David Gerard is the author of Attack of the 50 Foot Blockchain: Bitcoin, Blockchain, Ethereum & Smart Contracts — a sceptical look at the blockchain and cryptocurrency phenomenon. By day, he is a Unix system administrator; his job includes keeping track of exciting new technologies, and advising against the bad ones. He was previously an award-winning music journalist, and has blogged about music at Rocknerd.co.uk since 2001. He is a volunteer spokesman for Wikipedia, and is on the board of the RationalMedia Foundation, host of skeptical wiki RationalWiki.org. Originally from Australia, he lives in east London with his spouse Arkady Rose and their daughter. Until he reinstalled the laptop they were on, he was the proud owner of six Dogecoins.
