Adam Curry became involved with the PEAR lab in 2002. During high school, his observance of a gravity-related anomaly led to his invention of a novel technique and device for short-term earthquake forecasting. He spent several years traveling, researching, and organizing a global forecasting network. He was lauded by the US Congress, the Office of Naval Research, and was the 2002 recipient of the CERES connection prize, for which the MIT Lincoln Laboratory named an asteroid after him. His career as an inventor was diverted by an interest in poetry, and he graduated from the University of Colorado in 2008 with a degree in Creative Writing.
Adam assists with technical writing and hardware development at Psyleron, where he has worked full-time since 2008. His special interests are the scientific implications of mind-world connection, and the application of consciousness research to social and artistic philosophy.
