PCT finish!

I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Informatics at UC Irvine.

I recently (2013) thru-hiked the PCT with my partner, Luke a/k/a Pleats.

My dissertation research investigates the cultural phenomenon of disconnection. In a world of ‘constant connectivity,’ what are the promises and perils, possibilities and impossibilities of dis-connection in its multiple forms?
