I’m Sebastian Benthall. I still practice the dying art of blogging.

I am a PhD student at UC Berkeley School of Information. Since starting that program, this blog has turned into something of an open notebook. Meaning, this is all pretty informal and should be taken with a grain of salt. I love having conversations with people in the comments as they help me clarify my thoughts. So please don’t hesitate to comment, ask questions, or argue with me if anything strikes you as interesting.

Before beginning at Berkeley, I programmed software, managed projects, and developed business around GeoNode at OpenGeo, part of OpenPlans. As an undergraduate before that, I studied Cognitive Science and campaigned for fair elections.
