Trained in symbolic systems, mathematics, and theoretical economics at Stanford and Harvard, James Burns designs and develops new digital and intellectual frameworks for relational knowledge. An avid hacker, James built the API-driven website Mapping Main Street, constructing a system that automatically interrelates media feeds from across the web into thematic and geographic pathways. Currently, he is focused upon developing Zeega into an enterprise publishing platform that allows scholars, journalists, artists and ordinary citizens to easily create sophisticated interactive projects through participatory media, algorithmically curate and visualize large-scale media and data collections, and a suite of parametric authoring tools. James’s work in economics investigates topics in Game Theory, Market Design and Decision Theory. He holds a PhD in Economics from Harvard University.
