Humans of Data: 020


"I’m inspired by the fact that the [digital preservation] field is cross-disciplinary. To be able to talk about digital preservation in a holistic way you need data producers and data consumers including people from information sciences, library scientists and researchers. With every domain we need to understand a whole new idea of how data is produced and consumed and the use cases for the value of data.

It never gets boring. There will always be work. And if I have a question about a file format or metadata problem I can ask colleagues in New Zealand or the States or Scotland or the Netherlands and they know what I’m talking about. I love that. To me it’s like a cool kids’ domain!"
