In recent years Matt has contributed to stewardship of open source projects like IPFS, libp2p and Filecoin, all of which are focused on building a more secure, more equitable, decentralized web. Some of his recent publications include Instructions for Saving Endangered Data, his presentations about Decentralized Data Stewardship, the work-in-progress Decentralized Web Primer and (co-authored) policy paper Why is decentralized and distributed file storage critical for a better web?

Previously Matt spent 10 years building digital repositories for large research institutions and served as technology lead for Samvera, an open source collaboration that now includes over 40 of the world’s top libraries and archives.
