Howdy. My name's Angus. I'm a historian.

My research is on American student activism and the student's role in higher education, and I'm beginning to move tentatively into researching and writing on issues of internet community and online organizing. I blog about student issues at studentactivism.net.

I live in Manhattan with my wife and our daughters Casey and Elvis. Casey starts kindergarten in 2008 and Elvis was born at home in late 2006.

If you get the urge to friend me, go right ahead. No need to ask. I'll most likely friend you back.
