Destructuring.net belongs to Jonathan Vanasco. I'm a technology and advertising professional who tends to work around exciting topics like media, music, art and startups.
Some of the things I've done include: inventing one of the earliest technologies for decentralized social networking, and social media indexing for behavioral analytics / media buying; online strategy for a handful of labels in the music industry, and working on countless branding + advertising initiatives for large companies.

One of my companies sells limited editions of contemporary fine art online @ ArtWeLove.com.
