I am a stay-at-home dad of three daughters and a freelance technology consultant & web developer.
On brandonkraft.com, I focus on servant leadership with a particular perspective as a parent. Also as a techie, I examine the role of technology and how to best use different technologies and applications
The Bottom Line:
My name is Brandon Kraft and I write a blog.
I am a 20-something father who is doing his best trying to make everything work in my life.
These pages chronicle my journey.
I have been educated, most recently, at The University of Texas at Austin, earning a Bachelor of Arts. My major was sociology, but I found my minor, “Science, Technology and Society” much more interesting. STS was not offered as a major in my time and, to my knowledge, does not exist as a minor at UT anymore, although some bridging discipline programs fulfill the same basic area. I am a member of the Texas Exes, the alumni association for UT-Austin.
Someday, I would like to study the convergence of technology and society more in-depth. Examining how modern technologies–everything from the printing press in its time to Facebook/social networking today–has and continue to influence and change society is extremely interesting. As a self-professed techy, I like fiddling with all things electronic, but is the electronic option always the best? What do we lose, intentionally or not, by the transition. How does that change how we interact with each other? How to we retain knowledge with these new technologies? When you can find seemingly all knowledge on the Internet accessible within seconds, why “learn” anything? These questions I really find interesting.
