This is a blog. Which is short for “web log.”

This blog has turned into something of an open notebook. Often it’s a place to eject thoughts that are distracting me from more important work. Sometimes these ideas grow into new projects.

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.

I got my PhD at UC Berkeley School of Information. Now I’m a post-doc at NYU’s Information Law Institute and Center for Cybersecurity. You can read more about my work on my personal web site.

I tweet as @sbenthall.

I live in Brooklyn with my wife.
