Jonah Bossewitch, PhD is a native New Yorker who works and studies Communications at Columbia University. I have over 15 years of experience as a professional software architect, designer, and developer. I am an active free/open source contributor whose technical interests include Linux, Python, Content/Course Management, and Social Software. I recently defended my doctoral dissertation, Dangerous Gifts: Towards a New Wave of Psychiatric Resistance, where I examine significant shifts in the politics of psychiatric resistance and mental health activism. I love to bike ride, travel, scuba dive, and play the bass. I earned a masters in Communication and Education at Teachers College (’07) and graduated from Princeton University (’97) with a BA Cum Laude in Philosophy, and certificates in Computer Science and Cognitive Studies.
