Four Interns Join IEET’s Revamped Internship Program


Posted: Jan 27, 2013

We are pleased to introduce the four members of our revised IEET intern program: Jonathan Lin, Will Hiltman, George Bickers and Andrew Cvercko.

Here is a brief background on each of our interns:

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.

Will Hiltman is a performer who has studied at New York University, Carnegie Mellon University and the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts.  He has spent many hours learning about radical futurism through books, lectures and the Internet.  His interests include: health, performance, cognition, behavior, and futurism.

George Bickers is currently an undergraduate student at Wolfson College, University of Cambridge, reading for a BA in English. His research interests currently focus around the transmission and reception of the trans- and post-human within literature and visual culture. He also co-founded and edits ‘Post-Human Press’, which can be found at www.posthumanpress.com.

Andrew Cvercko lives in Winsted, CT. He works at a drug rehab, teaching mindfulness meditation to people attempting to recover from drug and alcohol addictions. He considers himself a progressive Buddhist and has dedicated his life to bringing meditation techniques and the philosophy behind them to people who would normally not have access to these. Andrew became interested in the future of technology and transhumanism from a very early age, having had the first of several mechanical heart valves put in his body at the age of three. His worldview is deeply connected to having artificial parts in his body.

Please check back often for new articles by our four new interns!
