Dear all,

Trebor asked me to introduced myself to the members of the list.

My name is Christian Fuchs, I am at the University of Salzburg, Austria, 
my background and interest is in critical social theory and dialectical 
philosophy, especially the works by Hegel, Marx, Marcuse and how they 
can be applied for studying contemporary society, media, and information 
from a critical theory and critique of the political 
economy-perspective. Besides work in general social theory and the 
theory of capitalism, I have in the past years tried to apply this 
framework to areas such as Internet and society, the information and 
media economy, discussions about media and development, Web 2.0, social 
networking sites, etc.

I am looking forward to follow and contribute to the the discussions on 
this list.

Christian Fuchs
