According to Steve over at the D-Ring, I’m “Ph.D. friggin’ smart.”  I’m assuming that’s a compliment.  Although, who knows?  I won’t name names, but I’ve met some less-than-smart Ph.D.s before. 🙂

Anyway, welcome to all those D-Ring readers that are visiting for the first time.  Feel free to take a look around, read some posts, conference papers, etc.  In general, I blog about issues of science, technology, and transformation.  Lately, I’ve been focusing more on new media in the military, including milblogging and the military use of videogames.

I also post over at I Shot the Cyborg, a new blog by a number of Internet researchers who cover digital games, the Internet, digital copyright, web 2.0, networks, blogging, crowdsourcing, and more.
