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.

I manage the IP Portfolio and R&D activity of FindMeOn.
I recently ran Technology and Product at IAC's Daily Beast, and worked on the merger with Newsweek ; and before that I ran Engineering and Product for Event Tech Labs who made RFID based access control and loyalty programs.
