FishEye is a twice-weekly newsletter about geography, technology, politics, and culture and how they intersect. I release new posts on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The majority of the posts are free, but some start out as subscribers only for the first 24 hours and only have emails that go out to paid subscribers.
Who are you?
I was a geospatial technologist on a global health-related contract from 2017 until 2021. Before that, I worked on geographic information systems analysis working mostly on law enforcement data from 2015-2016. Here is my academic CV for people who find those interesting. I am also the chair of the Neoliberal Project steering committee, an English Wikipedia functionary, a menswear nerd, and a champion beard grower. I live in Copenhagen, Denmark with my wife and our rescued Black Lab-Great Pyrenees Mix. For more info, check my website and my Twitter.
