Leslie Johnston: 

"I first encountered Jason Scott in mid- to late-2010 through a colleague who informed that me that if I did not know who he was, that I had better learn. Since then I have become a big fan of his passion for digital archiving and his drive to save collections and content that few organizations have considered part of their collecting scope, let alone something that required preservation. In 2011 Jason became affiliated with The Internet Archive, and he has been doing extensive work in building gathering a huge array of content, including open source software, shareware, and conference videos, but also the output of entire communities that was at risk of completely disappearing with little notice.

I recently had the opportunity to ask Jason some questions about his work."
