Meet TheTechUpload’s New Team

Posted on December 4, 2011 by

As you may have noticed, TheTechUpload has made two valuable additions to the team this week, Jason Chen and Amanda Ciccone, both of whom have joined as contributors.  Both are Binghamton University alums, like me and share a passion for technology within their respective fields.

Jason graduated Binghamton in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Science with a concentration in Economics.  When he isn’t out trying to save the planet, he’s trolling the web for the latest in tech so you can read all about it here.

Amanda also graduated from Binghamton in May 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Economics with a specialization in Financial Economics.  She’s currently a law student at University at Buffalo Law School and when she isn’t busy fulfilling her duties as the mayor of the law library, she spends some time giving us a legal perspective on the tech and social media world.

I hope you are as excited as I am about these stellar additions to our staff here at TheTechUpload and as we continue to grow and change the way technology and social media is reported on the web, likewise you will continue to see more great additions to our team.  Welcome to the team, Jason and Amanda!

I’m sort of an unconventional technologist. I graduated Binghamton University with an Environmental Science Degree, concentrating in Economics. I’ve always read about and discovered new technology and I’m excited about the opportunity to share my experiences with you. Through TheTechUpload, I can continue to discover new technology and share my love of technology to those with similar interests. With my knowledge and childlike curiosity of electronics and the environment, I’ll be able to provide a unique perspective on technology’s impact on our digital world. Technology drives our society today, and from my point of view, there’s always something better or something to improve upon. Join me on this TechUpload journey!

We all interact with technology every day, even first year law students like me! I believe the law is an invigorating field of study and the relationship the law shares with the latest cutting-edge technologies is utterly fascinating. Through TheTechUpload, I will share some of my thoughts about the various ways technology interacts with the law and other legal entities.
