Here is my about me in 2012
– Almost finished my PhD at the University of Calgary. I have a mountain of research, a dozen (unedited) chapters and am one “final push” away from finishing.
– Somewhere along the way, music hijacked my life in the last 6 years. Let’s be clear, it was always there, but I never had a crucial element – success. I got some marginal success and went on many long adventures (tours) and went insane.
– I live in Toronto now.
Here is my about me in 2006
I am working on a PhD in Sociology at the University of Calgary. I started in September (2006) after taking a year to fully realize how much I would regret not “going all the way.”
Also, I couldn’t find a real job.
My Master’s thesis was on the Metafilter.com community, and the role that possession of different forms of capital play in stratifying its members.
My current research focus is how patients use online communities centred around rare illnesses in their health work, and how this impacts the patient/doctor dynamic.
