I give talks sometimes. Some are about wiki. Some are about how we are asking the wrong questions about technology. Some are about the future of technology.
I’m a bit obsessed with the question of why, in a world where the marginal cost of sharing is zero, we don’t share or reuse as much stuff as one might predict. There are interesting reasons for that — some good, some trivial, all worth talking about. If we could learn to extend the work of others we’d get places we want to go faster.
As a former literature and linguistics student, I’m also interested in digital discourse, and new forms of expression that go beyond chatter and publication.
