Kirby Urner

Kirby Urner

Partner, 4D Solutions

Kirby Urner studied philsophy with some of the best in the business at Princeton University. He first contacted Fuller with a paper on general systems theory, based on experiences with his family in Cairo, Egypt. Later he become the first webmaster for the BFI (B. Fuller's Institute), snagging the domain name bfi.org with help from Kiyoshi Kuromiya, Fuller's adjuvant. Today, he administers grunch.net and 4dsolutions.net, both domains having literary significance to students of Fuller's philosophy, an off-shoot of New England transcendentalism ala Emerson and Thoreau.
