Hi. I’m Jay Owens.
This is my blog for longer-form thinking about social media and the politics and social impact of new technology.

I work as a researcher at FACE, looking at how people are using social media and what they’re saying on these networks. We innovate new research methods using social data, from network analysis and audience mapping to the myriad possibilities of mobile phones, quantified self and augmented research.
Previously I wrote a Masters thesis on dust (MA Modernity, Space and Place) at UCL, and prior to that I read Social Anthropology at the LSE.
