My name is Mehan Jayasuriya and I am a technologist and writer who lives in Portland, Oregon. At present, I am a product manager at General Assembly and a contributor at Pitchfork. In the past, I have worked for Tumblr and Public Knowledge and held teaching and research roles at NYU's Department of Computer Science and Wagner School of Public Policy. My writing on technology, policy, music and culture has been published by The Guardian, Gizmodo and MTV.
