Hi, I’m Julien! I’m a software engineer and linguist based out of New York City.
I love challenging modern assumptions about technology and critically considering its effects on our wellbeing, relationships, and environment. I believe we should cultivate slower, more intentional relationships with technology and better tailor it to our individual lives and communities instead of proliferating it wholesale. Some ways I do this are by installing guerilla internet and avoiding social media (you won’t find me on most platforms).
What have I been up to recently?
- Writing software that works on basic linguistic analysis of text at Basis Technology.
- Creating Neotelly, bringing together the best livestreams on the net (in beta)
- Installing community internet with NYC Mesh (see me in the Tokyo Shimbun!)
