Big news and updates

As of January 2013, I will be joining the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Journalism & Mass Communication faculty as an assistant professor, where my focus will be on digital media.

It promised to “address the implications of making the invisible city visible: of changing misuse into use and apathy into engagement.… Continue reading You really wish you could attend these conferences

Speaking Thursday, 9/16 (tomorrow) on architecture & information

My good friends at Adaptive Path are hosting a talk I’m giving tomorrow night on my research — on the history of architectures of information. Do come! I’m very excited to be sharing what I’ve been finding. Most of it hasn’t been published or presented anywhere since the mid 60s. Here’s the gist of my… Continue reading Speaking Thursday, 9/16 (tomorrow) on architecture & information
