The ThinkingShift blog gives me an opportunity to indulge in topics that interest me or keep me awake at night – particularly the erosion of our civil liberties in today’s surveillance obsessed society.
I also explore topics such as sustainability and global climate change; politics and social issues; endangered species; knowledge and information management; and anything that is just plain weird, bizarre, disturbing, wonderful or curious. For those who want to know if I know what I’m talking about (which is highly unlikely!) I have degrees in History (US History); Law; Education; and Chaos and Complexity.
I’m a keen amateur photographer so the ThinkingShift blog is liberally peppered with my efforts. But I post most of photographic work on my photo blog – ChinchillaBluePhotography. For those who want to put a face to a name, here’s a picture of me (Kim Sbarcea) in Nicaragua (I don’t live there, I was visiting). I live in New Zealand. I blog about about my life in New Zealand, so come over and visit this blog if you’re interested.
