Jeff Ginger (firstname.lastname@example.org) is a doctoral student at the Graduate School of Library and Information Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. A native of the Chicago suburbs, Jeff traveled to Champaign in 2002 with an interest in art, computers and helping people, the beginnings of what would emerge to be an interdisciplinary trek through several academic programs where he fostered his love for sociology, teaching and design as well as disdain for abstract computer science. Jeff benefits from a technical multimedia and social science background, accented by teaching and organizational leadership, and is perhaps most well-known for his activist research on Facebook.com. His current studies revolve around social & community informatics, deciphering the discourse and effects of the digital divide and Web2.0, critical and creative digital literacy, human-computer interactions (HCI) and the design of supportive technologies for research and information access.
