Finished undergrad with a degree in sociology. My focus was and continues to be studying human evolution, sociocultural evolution, and the role of communication in transforming a civilization. I believe we are at a crossroads right now, as technology allows for global, interdependent and instantaneous communication, how might that affect human societies? Are we headed towards a planetary civilization, with its own emergent mythos and culture? What are the negative and positive (and neutral) mechanisms behind a seemingly on-going evolution of human societies?
I'm also a member of Open Source Sociology
, a sister ning site to this one. Hoping to increase collaborative, cross-academic dialogue. The future of our disciplines is digital and open!
