About me

I’m Ricardo J. Méndez. I’m a technologist, open source and privacy advocate.

Here you’ll find some of my articles, talks, and links to some open source projects I’ve started or contributed to.

I’m Samsung NEXT’s Technical Director for Europe, where I’m focused on our Consumer Empowerment thesis - focusing on technology startups which give people back control of their data, attention, intention, and time.

At NEXT we invest in deep tech companies and work with innovative startups and entrepreneurs. If you are building something cool, I’d love to hear from you.

No, there’s no contact e-mail address on this site, but I’m easy to find. You can reach out to me through Mastodon, LinkedIn, the birdsite, or via my first name at samsungnext.com.
