I have no idea how you got here. Maybe you saw me lecture about humor, or heard me bringing up random historical facts and/or arguing about women at a tech meetup and were like, ”Who the hell is this woman?” Maybe you’re really looking for my interactive portfolio and were misled by my (admittedly poor) SEO. Maybe you’re an academic thinking of escaping and have questions for someone who already did it. Those are the likeliest scenarios I can think of.
If none of them apply, maybe these storylines will help:
Tech is my second language.
I used to be a professor.
But most students don’t know how to learn.
And higher ed is broken.
I write about a lot of things, because I think about a lot of things. That’s what I was trained to do.
I think about design.
I think about policy.
I think about the intersection of art and commerce.
I think about pop culture.
I think about technology.
I think about gender.
I think about language.
I think a LOT about comedy.
I analyze it. I write it. Sometimes, I review it.
Tech isn’t an end in itself. Tech is a means to express everything else. It’s the newest liberal art.
And this is tech – in translation.
