Imperative reading of indexical signs
I’m Shir. I was a history, sociology and anthropology undergrad student in HUJI. I’m now an MLIS student at Haifa University, where I’m practicing my cunning plan towards PhD in political anthropology of information architecture (current angle: metadata standards). I’m also a Buffista, play the role of a geek online and IRL, and a fangirl of many, vary, fuzzy things.
I’m impatient and passionate about data, epistemology, live music, knowledge and culture, mostly with regarding to the relations between ethics and aesthetics and the relationships between the natural and social sciences. I also found that Academia and I sometime don’t speak the same language, and needed a place to store and sort out some very raw drafts of ideas until something better will come along.
