It’s been over a year. Towards the middle of 2007 I became unsure what image and content this blog was trying to put forward, so I put up a basic placeholder with this short bio:
Benjamin Hourigan is the editor at the Centre for Independent Studies, a libertarian think-tank based in Sydney. He has previously been an assistant editor and subeditor at Architecture Media, publisher of magazines including Artichoke, Landscape Architecture Australia, and Houses. His writing has been published in a range of venues, including The Age, News Weekly, Australasian Drama Studies, and the IPA Review. He has given lectures at RMIT and at the University of Melbourne, where he has also tutored. He has been interviewed on Melbourne radio station 3LO, and for articles syndicated in the Christian Science Monitor and USA Today.
He is currently enrolled in the MBA program at the University of Technology, Sydney.
Benjamin is available for freelance writing and editing work. He has specialized experience in architectural publishing, editing for business, pharmaceuticals, videogaming, policy analysis, cultural studies, English literature, and Asian studies.
Now I have a better idea of what I want this to be, expect a few changes, including a header redesign. Postings will now be on matters I have a professional or journalistic interest in. The personal will take a back seat.
