I'm Dr. Bryan Behrenshausen, an independent scholar in Durham, North Carolina. I work for Red Hat, the world's largest open source software company, as a writer and editor on Opensource.com.

Here's my resume, as well as a more formal CV.

Writing

I've recently completed my doctoral dissertation, Information in Formation, about the cultural politics of "information." I'll link to it when it's available in my university's official archive.

A running list of my writing on open source culture is always available at Opensource.com.

Journals like Games and Culture, New Media & Society, and Cultural Studies have published my research.

I'm the Managing Editor for the journal Cultural Studies and a production editor at Capacious.

Here's my ORCiD.
