The Team behind The Burnettwork
Since launching in 2019, The Burnettwork website and the Post-Geek Singularity has been a joint effort led by Robert Meyer Burnett and his business partner, Mike Bawden. But very early on, Rob and Mike realized that it would take more hands and more hours to make the community everything they wanted it to be.
Fortunately, enthusiastic fans were willing and able to pick up responsibilities and help build the most positive and supporting, fan-based community on the Internet. We’d like to publicly recognize them here.
Interested in joining our team? Let us know. Be sure to tell us where you live and how you’re interested in helping us grow.
“Mayor” Mike Bawden is, actually, the mayor of a small city located in Eastern Iowa. But being the mayor of Riverdale is only a part-time job. The rest of Mike’s time is spent as a marketing and PR consultant, serving clients around the country and helping The Burnettwork grow into a profitable business.
Mike and his wife have four kids, three cats and a historic, 100 year-old mansion overlooking the Mississippi River.
