About meStudied math and some philosophy, later some more philosophy and sociology. Came down to earth after reading False Dawn, The Shock Doctrine and (re)reading The Report of the Club of Rome. Still like some science and technology studies in between, though.

My main program being somewhat like this:

OK we are heading for environmental collapse. I don't believe in constructing utopia's out of the blue, you have to understand what is happening in order to do something about it. So you need to study history / comparative (how come, why us), Sociology (mechanisms at work), etc.
