I'll introduce myself, too. I'm Robert W. Gehl, assistant prof in the
Department of Communication at the University of Utah. I have a fresh
book out, Reverse Engineering Social Media, which is a critical
exploration of social media ending with a survey of social media
alternatives. I'm now working on a project on alternative social media,
including social networking on the dark web. I am also doing a
genealogy/history of software engineering, including networking. I teach
classes on science and technology studies, software studies, and media
studies. Everything I do I inform with history.
