My CV / Portfolio

I have a lot of experiences that do not translate very well into a traditional resumé, so I made this hybrid portfolio / CV instead.

Click on the links below to see my work and learn more about my experience.

Education

University of Chicago, A.B., Political Science w/ General Honors

Thesis: “Finding Bitcoin’s Central Banker”, a survey of the history of centralization in Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies paired with a network analysis of Bitcoin investors and media figures in China. In this thesis, I identified a small clique led by someone I argue to be the most influential person in the cryptocurrency/blockchain space at the time of writing.

TechCrunch

Techli

For two years, I was a technology blogger for Techli.com, which used to be known as “Flyover Geeks”. The freedom my editors gave me to explore topics that personally interested me was immensely valuable in shaping my understanding of technology and the technology business.

My primary topics of coverage were the intersection of technology and society, privacy, intellectual property, entrepreneurial culture, and Facebook. Below is a sample of what I feel is some of my better writing and journalistic work I did for Techli.

Medium

For almost 9 months a few years back, I took a break from publishing to my blog here at jasondrowley.com. Instead, I published some writing up on Medium. Here’s a selection of some of my better posts there.


Interviews & Media Appearances

  • “Virtual Reality, Already A Reality? [PDF], an interview in PCM, a payments industry trade journal from Payments & Cards Network, in which I discuss the evolution of virtual reality and opportunities for the payments industry in VR/AR. (July, 2016)
  • I discussed “The 8 Megabyte Question” and some insider info from the Chinese Bitcoin community on TechCrunch’s Bitcoin podcast. (August 31, 2015)
