Without a Traceroute

Time to live.

So my name is Brendan McCollam, I just graduated from Pomona College in Claremont, CA where I was a neuroscience major.

I received a Watson Fellowship, which provides a $25,000 grant to travel and complete an independent project. My project involves traveling to the Netherlands, Germany, France, Slovenia, Croatia, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico investigating the free software movement and hacktivism. If you’re interested, you can read the personal statement and project proposal I submitted to the Watson Foundation which awards the grants.

This blog will be a record of my travels, with photos and stories and such; I also intend to write about timely issues in software/technology/politics. I imagine the majority of readers will be my friends, family, and perhaps people connected with the Watson foundation, but anyone else is welcome as well.

If you’d like to get in touch with me, please feel free to send me an email: brendan@withoutatraceroute.com
