About

profile

I work at the intersection of technology and public policy, helping leaders pursue a shared, open and progressive vision for the future.

This site is where I write about tech, politics, design… and the occasional 16-bit videogame.

The best way to contact me is via email at (chris [at] yiu.co.uk). If you prefer encrypted email then you can find my PGP public key here.

If you need my biography then you can copy the text below, and grab a high-res photo of me here.
