Hi, my name is Ed Summers, and I am a recovering software developer with two decades of experience working at the intersection of libraries, archives and the World Wide Web.

I study and work with the Web as a sociotechnical system, with an eye to its evolving architecture and practices of curation and preservation. I also help to keep the lights on at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities.
