I’m blogging thanks to an unsecured wireless account in my apartment. If this keeps up I might not need to get a home internet account. Let this be a lesson to you folks. For those with wireless connections: lock them down! For those poor grad students like me: live like a parasite and save money!

So a question came in through the comments: What are you studying? And I realized that this is something that I had not talked about in a while. The short answer is the social sciences.

That leads to question two: what are the social sciences. From the U of C’s perspective its:

  • Anthropology
  • Archeology
  • Economics
  • History
  • Political Science
  • Psychology
  • & Sociology

This leads to the third question: Ok, so which one are you doing? And the answer is: I don’t know. My program is an interdisciplinary program in which my courses are based on my research interest.

Which leads to: OK wise guy, what is your research interest? Great question. To sum it up its:

How do groups observe and integrate new technologies? How does that adoption effect group behavior? And how do those changes in behavior effect the development of the technologies?

How that splits up among the sciences remains to be seen. Oh well, I’m heading back to campus to work on my reading for a bit.
