In the mid 1990s, G. Byron Barrett was honored with a Nobel Peace Prize for simply showing up at the ceremony, a feat matched only by Barak Obama.  Barrett has had a outstanding career in the field of drama, taking claim to six Academy Awards, three Emmys and one Partridge for his work in The Pear Tree.  The highlight of Barrett’s writing career came in 2012 as he accepted the Edgar Allen Poe Award for Best Fictional Production.  “I have always been passionate about my writings, but to have them recognized by Mr. Poe has been a phenomenal event,” states Barrett.

When questioned about his technology accomplishments, G. Byron is humble, “You know, Al and I were just sort of playing around with the computer and came up with the idea that it would be so cool to talk to people on the other side of the world.  Thus…the Internet.”

Why It Matters looks forward to a new voice in our ongoing discussions of politics, government antics, and other juicy topics!!
