Hi. I’m Liam and I, like you, am finding out what it means to be human.
I am an apprentice User Interface designer and –apart from freelance projects– am currently unemployed. You should hire me to build things!
Concerning religion and philosophy, I am a buddhist and catholic/quaker and I support natural rights. Electorally, I support neither Team Red nor Team Blue. Politically, I am interested in education reform and immigration reform.
I attended UC Santa Barbara where I studied Globalization (the free movement of money, materials, people, and data across borders). Since graduating, my academic interests are 1. the use of mass media to affect public opinion, specifically shared naratives, 2. the extent to which information transmission and distributed non-hierarchical networks undermine, or fail to undermine, said media-industrial complex, and 3. the nature of information itself and its relation to the ethics of intellectual property (artificial scarcity and the nature of authorship). I hope to pursue a masters degree in philosophy (ethics)/law and public policy, conducting research in information science.
You are welcome to send email to me anytime.
