I am also the father of Eli Smith Morton, born 11 October, 1995. Like any proud papa, I'd like to show you pictures of my baby!
|I am a graduate student in the UCLA
Department of Sociology. I specialize in the sociology of cyberspace. In particular I
am interested in the emergence of social organizations like communities in online
environments. Here is a copy of my Vita.
If you are interested in this subject have a look at the Center for the Study of Online Community.
I am teaching a class on the subject in the Winter of 1997, have a look at the S098 class web site. Be sure to have a look at the Student Projects.
I have also developed software that measures and maps the social spaces in the Internet, starting with the Usenet. Read more about Netscan.
