My name is Lydia, and I love stories. Occasionally I post poetry, prose, art, and aphorisms on this blog.
I make my living with digital media R&D, user research, writing, and editing. I care a lot about meaningful media and creating it in a sustainable way.
Some favorite topics include the future of journalism; the future of social and connective media; the future of philanthropy and international development; immersive theatre; and alternate reality gaming.
I’ve created award-winning games, served in the Peace Corps, and written some books, plus articles for Vice, The Atlantic, The Harvard Business Review, and others.
These days, I spend a lot of time in New York and San Francisco.
Thanks for visiting!
