He has a bachelor's degree in Modern Culture and Media from Brown University, and a Ph.D. in Literature from Duke University in 2001.

Galloway's first book, Protocol: How Control Exists After Decentralization, is a study of information networks and their political and computational effects. His other published writings examine film noir, video games, software art, hacktivism, and digital aesthetics. Galloway has conducted several seminars through The Public School NYC, including "French Theory Today" and he has translated the work of philosopher François Laruelle and the Tiqqun collective. Galloway is also a programmer and artist. He is a founding member of the Radical Software Group (RSG), and his art projects include Carnivore (awarded a Golden Nica at Ars Electronica 2002), and Kriegspiel (based on a war game originally designed by Guy Debord).
