== Matt Zumwalt ==
Currently the Program Manager at Protocol Labs, Matt is one of the most dedicated technologists who sees our current flaws and has shown a strong track record of helping to push the boundaries of how we store and access digital resources. Matt has given multiple Code4lib presentations previously, one of which being the memorable Code4lib 2017 presentation in the context of endangered data sets. Among many professional interests, currently working on IPFS (Inter-Planetary File System), Matt is helping to engineer a novel method of interacting with ethically distributed, peer-to-peer (P2P) resources, in which libraries are another lender in P2P borrowing chain. Matt is one of the most moving speakers. It would be an honor to have Matt Zumwalt as a keynote speaker.
Borrowing from Matt's webpage: "Previously I founded a consulting firm called MediaShelf, created Ruby libraries called active-fedora and om and served as the technical lead for the Hydra Project, which began as a collaboration with Stanford, Univerisity of Virginia, Univerisity of Hull and DuraSpace but has grown to be a large open-source software initiative with over 40 partner institutions and broad adoption among Libraries, Archives and Museums."
