I am an artist, designer, and technologist, and am founder and director of the RootIO project, which seeks to blend the best of radio with the best of the Internet. I am currently the European Research Area Chair, scientific head, and professor at Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute. I was very proud to be the first Distinguished Visiting Professor of Art & Design Research at Parsons New School of Design, and for the blink of an eye I was Professor of Media Design Matters at the Art Center College of Design. Before that, I was at MIT for ten years, where I cofounded and directed the MIT Center for Future Civic Media, and was a professor and ran a research group at the MIT Media Lab, the Computing Culture Group. A list of selected projects from CompCult can be found here. You can find some of my own edgier products under the projects header.
