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.
