About Glen

I’m a professor of communications at Ryerson University. I recently completed my PhD in Information Studies at University of Toronto. I teach classes at Ryerson on digital media design and theory. My research examines locative media and how mobile devices generally affect our relationships to the places we encounter.

I have a background in media, having studied digital media and film production and worked in website management for over 11 years. I blog about my research and technology trends at my Webslinger blog.

I also love collecting things, particularly postcards which I have done since I was six years old.  I’m always accepting new donations, so feel free to mail away…

  1. How crazy are you about postcards? I just found a box in my basement with postcards I bought in England in the 60s and 70s, in Europe in the 90s, and some other art postcards etc. If you are in TO and want them, drop me a line. They make a stack about 2 inches high. Otherwise they are off to Value Village.


  2. I just need to correct you. You show a photo at the top of your page about the DDay landings saying its Canadians. It is in fact British royal marine commandos. The man in the forefront of the image is my uncle James Mooney of the 4th Special Services (Royal Marine Commandos). It is wrongly labelled 9n another site attributed to the Canadians. This landing image is their arrival on Nan Red sector of Juno Beach. This can be verified with the collection at the Imperial War museum online.
