Michael A. BartleyMichael Bartley grew up in Waltham, MA, on computers and the Boston Celtics. Lacking height and athleticism, he stuck with the former. After graduating from Harvard, Michael tried to improve the fantasy sports world by developing a fantasy baseball game. To actually pay the bills, he tried to make the world a safer place by programming video security products at Biscom. Michael set off to law school to fix problems with technology law itself. While in law school, Michael became managing editor of IDEA: The Intellectual Property Law Review, and gained practical experience working at Franklin Pierce Law Center’s Intellectual Property and Transaction Clinic and at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society Cyberlaw Clinic.

He graduated from MIT, served on active duty in the USAF, and then graduated from law school, writing a book that paid for law school.

In his spare time, Erik enjoys baseball, blogging, building (backyard ice hockey rink, igloo, startups, treehouses), and seeking the perfect Hammond B-3 sound on his keyboard.
