Hi I'm Ed Summers. I'm a software developer working at the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities.
I'm interested in the Web as an archive. I've worked putting traditional archival materials on the Web, but I'm actually more interested in what makes the Web more like an archive -- the so called Long Web. This includes such things as permalinks, persistence, visible data, robots.txt/crawling, etc ... but also newer approaches to distributed storage (IPFS, NameCoin, etc).
