Jonathan Lin

Jonathan Lin is a senior English major attending his final academic year at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota. He is Chinese American currently living in the dynamic city of Hong Kong, where technology is firmly embedded into the culture. His main interests are technology public policy, particularly those that concern structural or social networks such as cloud computing. In between browsing smartphone reviews and browsing the think-tanks that populate my Twitterfeed, he tries to keep pace with the cultural developments in China and the West, including the emergence of a formidable social media presence in the world’s most populated country. All this happens when he’s not watching films by Wong-Kar Wai, Paul Wes Anderson, Zhang Yimou, Akira Kurosawa, or Elia Kazan.
