Sven Slootweg

Sous-chef - Developer, activist and archivist

I do stuff on the internet.


Sven Slootweg is a developer, activist, and archivist - often all three at the same time - based in the Netherlands. He has written code for and (co-)organized the ArchiveTeam archiving projects for isoHunt and Hyves, runs several automated scrapers that upload scraped content directly to the Internet Archive, and digitizes physical media whenever he can find the time. He feels that wholesale archiving culture and information is absolutely essential, even if that culture or information is currently perceived as 'useless', as it is impossible to predict what future generations might consider relevant, useful, or interesting.
