Welcome to the Bytegeist

Hello, my name is Richmond Wong. I am currently a junior at Cornell University, double majoring in Information Science and Science and Technology Studies.  In general, I’m deeply interested in the interaction between people and technology, whether on an individual level, like human computer interaction, or on a more aggregate social level, such as technology policy.  I’m interested the policy implications of science and new technology, especially information technology.

Many of these posts are or were intended for my class blog, for INFO 3200: New Media and Society, which I took in Spring 2013.  As such, some posts are cross-listed, though I will try to indicate which posts originated from the class blog.

You can find out more about me at my personal website.

The Bytegeist is about the intersection of technology and culture

In regards to new media, I’m interested its policy implications, as well as how use of new media may affect politics and the public sphere. Looking ahead, it seems like we will be discusses many issues that touch on these topics during the semester, and I am looking forward to engaging in a discussion about them.
