My blog has been just about dead the past couple years, for one reason or another and then another (#Becauselife). I’ve occasionally posted a quick update here and there about some event, job, call for submissions, or slides from one of my talks. But I haven’t been doing the regular blogging I was doing before the life stuff happened – and I miss it!

It crosses my mind to post something probably once every few weeks, but I usually only get as far as jotting down my ideas in Evernote to come back to later. For example:

– Biggest differences between grad school and working world
– Looking at the system of a product versus just one aspect of it when doing research
– Practicing anthropologists and their favorite tools, software, etc.
– How I create discussion guides for interviews
– Being human at work, and how businesses can be more human
– Networking

I wanted to post this quick hello to let people know that I plan to get back into blogging – soon. The life things that got in the way before are either gone or not as much of an issue anymore. I also recently left my job at eBay to go back to independent consulting, so I am not dealing with the constraints of having to be at a particular place at a particular time. How I spend my time is totally in my control (always has been, really), but of course that looks and feels different when you are flying solo versus working for someone else.

I also wanted to ask for input from anyone who reads Anthropologizing about the kind of content they would like to see here. Is there anything I used to talk about that you would like to see more of? Any questions you want me to answer, people you want me to feature? Please leave a comment below or send me an email.

In the mean time, here’s Todd Rundgren singing Hello, It’s Me in 1973.

  1. It is great to see you have some time to do something you enjoy again and pass on some of your knowledge/experience!

  2. Hi Amy
    nice to know the blog is still alive and that you intend to write more. How about anthropology and technology (yeah, not vague at all…)? I mean, how anthropologists use technology as a tool: smartphones, social media, how devices (re)shape cultural interactions and how they are ressignified by usage.
