Akiva Thalheim is a junior in Gallatin studying the intersection of psychology and technology. He's been WSN's Social Media Editor since September 2018, and also writes about technology and entrepreneurship on campus for the News desk. He enjoys creative nonfiction, architecture and photography, and dislikes talking about himself in the third person. He spends a lot of time thinking about surveillance capitalism, captology and visual culture, along with how many days it’s been since he last watered his plants. He thinks you can learn a lot about a person based on their recently used emoji, so here are his: 😌, 🤔 and 🤷‍♂️.
