I’m an experienced public policy professional based in the UK, with a focus on technology and the internet. I’ve spent time working at the centre of government, in consulting, in think tanks and nonprofits, and in the tech sector.

This is my personal website. I’ve had a homepage here since the late 1990s, and have been writing an occasional blog since the early 2010s.

You can contact me via email at (chris [at] yiu.co.uk).
