Jason Scott works at the Internet Archive helping to record and maintain a history of computer technology. But as many of you know, that’s hardly all that he does. He’s the owner and curator of textfiles.com and he has produced such great documentaries as BBS: The Documentary and Get Lamp. A recently successful  kickstarter campaign has him working on three other documentaries at the same time — certainly no small task. We’re very excited to host him in Portland this June. In the meantime, you can read his blog, follow him on twitter @textfiles, or, as I’m sure many of you already do, follow his cat on twitter @sockington.

A limited number of $225 Early Bird tickets are still available, so Register now to see Jason Scott and many other amazing talks at this year’s Open Source Bridge. Even better, be one of the amazing presenters and get in for free! Our Call for Proposals is still open.
