Kam is currently developing modified open source digital forensics tools for digital archivists. He works with archivists, librarians, forensics researchers, and other development groups to identify core needs in analyzing and preparing digital content for preservation -- specifically needs that can be addressed using existing high-performance forensic technologies (with a little tweaking). He is also interested in developing datasets and teaching technologies to support education and professional training in digital archiving.

Jon Voss

Jon Voss has innovated solutions and community engagement on “big picture” problems for 15 years. In the mid-‘90s, his early work on social responsibility led him to develop new business practices for music festivals and rock stars through his work with the Tibetan Freedom Concerts and artists like the Beastie Boys, David Crosby, and Wyclef Jean. A decade later, he helped religious communities and other institutions develop and implement technology infrastructure and strategies that fit with their beliefs, cultures, and daily practice. He served as the IT Director for the San Francisco Zen Center before running his own IT consulting firm for 7 years.

Today, Jon is the Historypin Strategic Partnerships Director at We Are What We Do, a global not-for-profit behavior change agency. He is helping to build an open ecosystem of historical data across libraries, archives, and museums worldwide through his work with Historypin and as one of the organizers of the International Linked Open Data in Libraries, Archives, and Museums Summit.
