I'm the F Jay Taylor Endowed Research Chair of Communication at Louisiana Tech U.
My research is on the relationship between communication technologies and culture. I've written some books in this vein. My first book, Reverse Engineering Social Media (Temple), was a critique of Facebook before it was cool to critique Facebook.
Weaving the Dark Web (MIT) is a history and ethnography of Tor hidden services, Freenet freesites, and I2P eepsites.
