Hello! Depending on who you talk to, I’m either a distracted sociologist or a lost computer scientist. Up until this past Spring, I was a Ph.D. candidate studying collective problem solving and social networks. My work till now has been mostly sociological in nature, but there has always been a computational component. I am now on leave, working on methods of audience segmentation for Internet ad targeting.

I am starting this blog in order to have a place to participate in online discussions concerning social networks (both real and virtual) and the various applications, algorithms, and conceptualizations surrounding them. It’s my way of keeping my hand in while I serve more commercial interests.
