Andrew McKinney is a PhD candidate in Sociology and Digital Fellow at the CUNY Graduate Center and a Community Facilitator at the OpenLab at City Tech. His research is primarily concerned with the collapse of the differences between several classic binary pairings in the contemporary American economy (labor and play, work and leisure, production and consumption, for example) and the role technology has played in this process. His dissertation studies the role of that fan labor, specifically that of American sports fans, plays in the political economy of the Internet.

He blogs here and occasionally at the website for the CUNY Digital Labor Working Group, a research group at the CUNY Graduate Center that he co-founded.
