I'm a writer, researcher, editor, and sometimes programmer interested in the history of computers, simulation, and artificial intellegence in public life. I've written on subjects ranging from the Limits to Growth debate, the politics of SimCity, to simulation modeling in international development.
I have a PhD in History from Northwestern University and did postdoctoral work in the Computer Science department at the University of California, Berkeley. Before academia, I worked for the National Archives and in the information technology sector. You can get a fuller idea of my background and interests by viewing my CV.
