Employed as an intern at Vulture Central in 2018, Richard Speed stuck around and managed to achieve the lofty title of Reporter after demonstrating his prowess at carrying beer glasses. He studied English Literature and Computer Science at university before spending a quarter of a century at the sharp, pointy end of IT. Now he much prefers writing about it rather than having to make it work. Richard covers Microsoft and open source software. He is also responsible for the Bork!Bork!Bork! feature, and the On Call and Who, Me? columns.
