Super Name

Profile Cohabitation
A mix of public sector workers and disgruntled retirees. *sigh*
Profile Communities
From my work life, I seem to be on first name terms with a bunch of experts in media & communications, technology, and the social sciences. Socially, my mates are mostly gamers and creative types. Go figure.
Profile Skills
Outside my chosen academic field (digital media & society), I have a ""shallow"" understanding of everything from architecture to computing, and astronomy to environmental science.
Profile Profession
I work for the University of London as a research associate, where I am attempting to balance my research with taking seminars for a course on digital media & society. I also do the odd bit of work as a freelance journalist.
Profile Location
A housing cooperative in south-east London.
Profile Experience
Having finally(!) completed my PhD thesis in the spring of 2016, I was offered a research job in the private sector. But instead of taking the job, my supervisor talked me into staying at the university as part of a postdoctoral fellowship.
Profiles Ideals
Justice, freedom, transparency - the usual. :)
