About

Hi, I’m Gus Andrews.

My aim in life is to help people better understand media and technology. I want everyone to know how content gets to them, and how it may be shaped by the “pipes” it passes through to get to them, whether those are machines or corporations.

I do this in a number of ways:

I do user experience work on technology, helping ensure people’s everyday tech lives are smooth, productive, and happy.

I produce The Media Show, an award-winning YouTube series on media and digital literacy.

I’ve been an organizer for HOPE (a conference on privacy and digital rights).

Sometimes I teach. (I miss doing it!)

I’ve been blogging since 1999 across a number of places, so the structure of my blogs is a little complicated. My research portfolio is up on Medium. My blog here is more like working notes.

I keep myself sane through African dance and wandering around NYC documenting daily life.
