What about the digital humanities interests you (mapping, crowdsourcing, research...etc.)?

I am a lover of art and literature, and I see the Internet as a vast, untapped resource of cultural education. I think that the majority of Internet users are underserved by the current landscape of social media and web content, and that there is enormous potential for refinement. I love the idea that all of the best and most profound artistic achievements of humanity could be available to everyone, always, instantly, and for free. Right now, I think that the Internet is dumbing down the majority of our society, but I don't see this as an inevitability. Rather, it is simply a failure to harness the power of the medium to invert that process. The broader base of web users could be guided along a trajectory of refinement, given the appropriate and properly wielded tools.

Introduction

I am a screenwriting MFA at Boston University, and a graduate of BYU's film school.
