Berkman Fellowship

Last week, the Berkman Center for Internet and Society announced it’s 2011-2012 list of fellows. I’m honored and excited that they elected to include me in a pretty incredible list of fellows, faculty associates, and other affiliates. It seems I’ll be at Harvard next year.

In my first year as an undergraduate — when fights over Napster were raging — I took a class taught by a Berkman Fellow on the political and social implications of Internet technology. The next year, I worked part-time as a teaching assistant for Harvard Law professor (and Berkman director) Jonathan Zittrain. These experiences had a enormous influence on my life and work. Before, my goal was to study and teach English literature.

I’ve hung around on the fringes of the center for much of the last decade and I’ve grown immeasurably from the experience. Most recently, I’ve been working closely with Berkman director Yochai Benkler and current fellow Aaron Shaw on research in online cooperation. The new crop of fellows includes a pretty great group of people working on similar stuff and I’m looking forward to expanding the online cooperation research at the center and to a year of fascinating talks and discussions. I also hope that, after all these, years, I’ll be able to give a bit back to an organization that has given me so much.

  1. If you have been following my fantasy posts for months, you know how much I loved Ryan Mathews in the course of his rookie season. OK, so that prediction still left egg on my face. But he did display the upside I saw in him not too long ago, catching 50 passes, rushing for 1, 091 yards and scoring six touchdowns in 14 online games. In 2012, he’s going to get his possiblity to become a real fantasy football monster. The San Diego Chargers now appear set to offer him a featured role, agreeing to the <a href=http://gowholesalejerseys.com/>wholesale jerseys</a>contract with fullback Le’Ron McClain that ends Mike Tolbert’s stint with the franchise. McClain isn’t the same offensive threat as Tolbert, who put a major dent into Mathews’ opportunities and fantasy value last <a href=http://gowholesalejerseys.com/>cheap wholesale jerseys</a>season. Assuming the Bolts don’t go out and grab another running back, which isn’t completely out of the question, Mathews is going to be in a position to succeed. Not only <a href=http://gowholesalejerseys.com/>authentic jerseys wholesaler</a>does he have two full seasons of NFL experience under his belt, but the Fresno State product also has one of the most favorable schedules (based on 2011 fantasy points) among running <a href=http://gowholesalejerseys.com/>wholesale cheap jerseys</a>backs. I’m not sure I’d invest a first-round pick in him in a 10-team league, but Mathews seems destined to be one of the first 12-15 overall picks in 2012 fantasy <a href=http://gowholesalejerseys.com/>wholesale jerseys free shipping</a>drafts.Want daily fantasy football advice?
