Social Media Specialist

Michael Garfield started as a dinosaur paleontologist and scientific illustrator before broadening his scope to study the role of mind and language in the evolutionary process, the co-evolution of humans and technology (especially our media environments), and the emergence of new modes of identity and social organization in electronic planetary culture. After thirteen years as an itinerant transmedia artist, he is honored and relieved to be back in the academic conversation at SFI.
