👋 Hi! My name is Ed Summers and this is my weirdly named website. I’m a software developer and researcher working at the intersection of libraries, archives and the World Wide Web. I’m interested in how the Web functions as a sociotechnical system, especially with regard to memory practices such as curation and preservation. I am currently working at Stanford University Library on their Infrastructure Team.
