Welcome. This is my former home page, which now contains links to my projects and work in various places online. You can see my most current CV, list of publications and papers, and all of my writings at my research weblog, Heptanesian Archives which is more regularly updated.

I have been pursuing my doctorate in History & Anthropology of Science & Technology at MIT since 2005. I have been a project associate and technology evangelist for Zotero with the Center for History & New Media at George Mason University since 2007.

I have been an exchange scholar in Middle Eastern & Asian Languages & Civilizations at Columbia University since 2006.

Since 2003, I have managed The Memory Bank, a research and teaching blog by Keith Hart exploring language, money, and new forms of exchange.

From 2005-2006, I occassionally convened Urban Media,a workshop on the history and anthropology of cities in India and South Asia, with urban historians and ethnographers from MIT, Wellesley College, Harvard, Northeastern and Columbia Universities.

In Fall 2007, I was teaching assistant for Ethics and Law on the Electronic Frontier at MIT with Hal Abelson, Danny Weitzner and Michael M.J. Fischer.

I have been a member and coordinator of CRIT (Collective Research Initiatives Trust), Mumbai since 2003. Until 2005 I lived and worked in Mumbai, where I have been Visiting Faculty at the Kamala Raheja Vidyanidhi Institute of Architecture (2003–2006), was the founding Coordinator then Associate Director of PUKAR (Partners for Urban Knowledge Action & Research) (2001–2003), and was the Founder and Joint Convenor of the Mumbai Study Group at the Academy of Architecture, Mumbai (2000–2002).
