Who?

My name is Andrew Jackson and I’m a physicist who now works in digital preservation and web archiving.

I got my start in digital preservation helping build the PLANETS Testbed as part of the PLANETS Project. This new site is largely based on my ideas of what the PLANETS Testbed should have been.

I blogged a bit more about my background here.

There’s a lots of other great Digital Preservation resources out there, and I’m also part of a collaborative project to try and link them all together – go visit digipres.org to see what we’ve done!
