Of endings and beginnings

First things first. Thanks so much for the many warm and supportive comments posted since my defense. I am very grateful for having had such extraordinary readers for so many years.

As you know, this blog began as a record of my experiences as a PhD student. And as some of you may recall, it was always my intention to end the blog with the completion of my doctorate--so this is my final post.

Over the next few weeks purse lip square jaw will be redesigned. My dissertation will be made available online in its entirety, and although the blog will not be updated, the complete archive will remain here.

Of course, I will continue to blog at spaceandculture and I am very excited to be starting on new adventures.

Next week I take up a year-long position as Assistant Professor in Design & Computation Arts at Concordia University in Montréal, where I will be teaching the social and cultural dimensions of new technologies, art and design practice. I hope to bring the sensibilities of sociology and anthropology to design and computation arts, and I'm looking forward to working with, and learning from, truly world-class colleagues and students.

The redesigned purse lip square jaw will provide links to all my courses, as well as to a new research project on the cultures of design and some upcoming publications.

Thanks again for all the support--it's been an incredible six years--and I hope to still see you around.

Now: Hey! Ho! Let's Go!

UPDATE 25/08/08:
The plsj tumblelog collects things I notice, and it's more fun than this blog.
