My name is Leighton…

Me… might be a slightly old photo though… you get the idea

I’m an academic whose research interests are digital media, the philosophy of technology and post-phenomenology. In 2013, I successfully defended my PhD thesis in the Philosophy of Technology at Swansea University. My research was in in the remediation of place and surfacing of the possibility of placehood through mobile technologies and social gazetteers. I’m also interested in the practices and features of online places, and digital ecologies. Decidedly Heideggerian, no?

Much of my everyday existence is taken up in a remorseless devouring of digital culture, from video games and social networking to science fiction, futurism and posthuman texts. The intention of this blog is to muse on these cultural artefacts, but I’m sure there is meandering onto football too. Comments on any post or issue are most welcome.

Please feel free to get in touch through the usual social media routes or email
