Hi, I’m Aaron.
I used to specialize in fun things like digital echoes of destabilized environments. Ie. How close are things on the ground to what’s showing up on Twitter? Then depending on the environment, filtering out the noise, the evil botnets, the porn botnets, and perhaps sometimes the evangelical botnets.What’s left is pure pure signal, and allows you to get as clear a window into an environment without actually being there. Or at least, that’s what I’d like to think.
Nevertheless, this blog is a series of thoughts on what happens when we apply that thinking to that and other subjects? Can we indeed do a census of ISIS on Twitter? Can you develop an equation for happiness? No really – can you? Cause I’d really like to know.
