Welcome to pop.pol.tech!
Welcome to pop.pol.tech, a blog about that follows pop culture, politics, and technology through the eyes of the college student. Read the news that affects us, the reviews of what we love, and the commentary on the crazy world we've inherited and continue to build everyday.
I started blogging back in 2008, with my own pop culture blog BWU, which I am proud to say is in its third year. Back then, I was inspired to write because I had a lot to say about what was happening in the pop culture world (and I still do). It was primarily about what I had to say alone. What I've realized is that I am at my strongest, both personally and professionally, when I am collaborating and working with others.
I realized this while reconnecting with my best friend Ryan Mason just yesterday in Manhattan. We've been friends since elementary school, and even though we don't see each other for months at a time, everything is still the same when we meet up. I quickly remembered how well we worked together, and how I became a stronger person with his help. It was a no-brainer for me to combine our strengths; his technological sensibilities and analytical mind with my pop culture sensibilities and creative mind.
In that combination births pop.pol.tech.
I hope that you are able to join us in discussing what we truly care about in today's world, and have some fun along the way. Please leave comments and subscribe to keep up with the latest from us. And keep a look out for Ryan's introduction. Trust me, it will be a riot.
