for once I have a good reason for falling off the face of the earth. Really. Unfortunately since it deals with someone close to me, I’m not going to post it. Hopefully after today things will get better and I’ll be back on a normal schedule.
I’m [Matthew Bernius] a PhD student in Cornell’s Cultural Anthropology Program. My work centers on the transformation of newspaper and text based journalism within the United States, exploring issues of the social construction of technology, professionalization, and freedom. In my spare time, I also work on the future of reading, ambient books, and the use of digital technologies in social research.
