Owen studied philosophy as well, but is on the whole less dismayed by it than Dan. A lifelong Guardian-reading North Londoner (with all that that entails), he’s currently employed as an admin peon with the NHS. Rumours that he can leap tall buildings in a single bound remain unsubstantiated.
Reuben. R is currently studying for a PHD in History. He is passionate about web 2.0, to the extent that he recently had a nightmare about Harry’s Place (true fact.) He is passionate about freedom, equality and Leonard Cohen. He is equally passionate in his denunciation of the countryside. He also makes music. He can be contacted at email@example.com
Salman Shaheen is a journalist who studied Social & Political Sciences at Jesus College, Cambridge and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia. He has written for The Times of India and New Internationalist, was literature editor of Varsity, once co-hosted a children’s news series with Jon Snow and has an unceasing urge to interview famous people for The Third Estate. Writer, ranter, raver, or thereabouts, he’s currently working on a magic realist novel set in Bolivia during the Gas War.
