I'm Bryan Behrenshausen, a doctoral candidate in the Department of Communication Studies at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where I work on cultural studies of informatic technologies. I try to think conjuncturally about how the concept of information gets articulated differently across multiple discourses and domains. My research on video gaming has appeared in journals like Games and Culture and New Media & Society (this citation index points to a few others). I'm also Associate Editor for the journal Cultural Studies. I care deeply about software freedom, and on the Web I write and podcast about open source projects. In various places online (like Freenode and Quitter), I typically go by "semioticrobotic." I've earned a master's degree in Communication from the University of Maine at Orono and a bachelor's degree in Speech Communication from Millersville University of Pennsylvania. Here's my complete curriculm vitae.
