My name is Alexandra. I’m a semi-current Reed College graduate, who spent nearly all of my time in college thinking and writing both in German and about German things. Since I’ve graduated, I’ve taken some time to learn about other cool and interesting things, such as Japanese literature! and French Films! Besides continuing my love for world literature, I’ve also grown more interested in exploring technology’s role in shaping a person’s identity, in particular how people perceive and use technology (and the interwebz) to establish themselves in both a “virtual” and “real” setting. Any time I find something interesting about technology and education or literature, I’ll probably write about it too. Save for a brief period working as an instructional technologist, I am still new to the many uses and opportunities technology can help in our everyday lives. This blog is my attempt to understand it all.
