Hello. My name is Bernhard Rieder, I’m an associate professor at the media studies department at the University of Amsterdam and this blog is a public notepad for some of my ideas on actual and potential connections between technology, culture, and politics. I also document some of the code stuff I do at the digital methods initiative on here.

I maintain a list of the tools I develop and my personal homepage can be found here – it’s currently even somewhat up to date! My official university page is here. I’m more into analyzing social media (data) than using them, but I tweet at @RiederB.
