My name is Behzod Sirjani, and I am currently a PhD student at Northwestern University. I am a student of life (some use the term life-long learner), a semi-professional dinner guest, and an avid problem-solver. I spend most of my time thinking about the social uses and implications of technology, as well as reflecting on how to live a more compassionate and sustainable life.
This place is a pensieve of sorts.*
I use this space is to get my thoughts out there for myself and others to see, talk about, criticize, comment on, etc. I often feel like there is too much going on in my head and I just need a place to store it. You have found that place.
Given that caveat, you will find posts about many different things I am interested in on this site, ranging from media and new media, to environmental and social issues, to denim and my love of design. I will try to tag and categorize ideas as best I can so you can filter through things efficiently, though getting lost is often quite fun.
Yes, that was a Harry Potter reference.
