Welcome roving blogger Adam Fish

Adam Fish, a PhD student at UCLA is going to be doing a bit of guest blogging here at SM this summer. Adam describes himself as a new media producer and anthropologist of the creative industries. He’s worked as a documentary maker at CurrentTV on issues such as Iraqi and Bhutanese refugees, Native American tourism, Buddhist/Hindu religious land disputes, and the split cities of Belfast and Nicosia, Cyprus. He has promised to give us some insight into that place where economics and activism meet in citizen journalism and participatory culture. He’s travelling and will be in Cyprus, Israel, and Burning Man… blog on, Adam.
