My name is Richmond Wong, I am currently in the PhD program at UC Berkeley’s School of Information.  I attended Cornell University for my undergraduate degree, in the fields of Information Science and Science and Technology Studies.  Find out more about me at my I School Page.

The Bytegeist originated as a required blog for a course I took at Cornell University in Spring 2013 called “New Media and Society” with Tarleton Gillespie. Since then, I’ve moved my blog posts over here and as such some of the older posts are tagged “DQ” for discussion question, “RB” for response blog, or as an essay resource. Now that I’m here, I will try to periodically update my thoughts about the intersection of technology, public policy, culture, and design.
