Hello! I have no idea why you’re here. Maybe you saw me lecturing about humor, or speaking at the Dionysium, or bringing up random historical facts at a tech meetup or arguing about feminism at a bar. 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 this 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 Classics trains you 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.
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.
