DISH2013 proudly presents: Jason Scott

We are proud to announce the name of our first keynote speaker: Jason Scott.

XOXO 2012

Jason Scott is a historian, filmmaker and public speaker who has spent decades collecting all manner of computer lore, stories, artefacts and knowledge. Through his site textfiles.com, he has provided gigabytes of BBS-era textfiles and web-era graphics and cd-rom data for over 12 years, and is now working with the Internet Archive (archive.org) as a “free-range archivist” to bring in even more historical data for preservation and online access.

In 2009, he founded the ARCHIVE TEAM, a rogue band of activist archivers downloading at-risk and closing websites of their user data to ensure the work of millions are not lost with the push of a pen on a spreadsheet. A wiki of projects and knowledge is at www.archiveteam.org. As a documentary filmmaker, he has created two multi-episode series: 'BBS: The Documentary' and 'GET LAMP (about Text Adventures)'. He has finished a documentary about the DEFCON hacker conference, and is currently in production on three more documentaries.
