I am a Ph.D. student at UC Berkeley’s School of Information and a researcher at Yahoo! Research Berkeley. My research interests include:
- » How models and methods of commons-based peer production can be applied to audiovisual media production and organization
- » Systems of mediation between traditional hierarchical forms of media production and newer networked forms of media production
- » How the development of standards for enabling the automated processing of media shapes and is shaped by these networked forms of media production
Prior to graduate school I worked as a professional software developer for in Tokyo, Japan for five years. I am quite interested in new media art and entertainment and try to involve myself in projects that explore the spaces between technology, entertainment, art, and design. I'm also somewhat of a music fanatic.
Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, our help system and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via Twitter. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forum is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any administrator for help, too. Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun! --Larry Sanger 00:37, 15 November 2006 (CST)
