Hi. I, like you, am finding out what it means to be human.
I am a User Interface designer working in Los Angeles at a small firm.
Concerning religion and philosophy, I am a Christian and I support natural rights. Electorally, I support the Green Party of California and voted for Dr. Jill Stein for President in 2012. Politically, I am especially interested in removing corporate influence on elections and immigration reform.
I attended one of the State of California public universities 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. All of this is boring actually.
