Community Cultivation Advisor, Educopia Institute
As SPN Community Cultivation Advisor, Jessica Meyerson manages staff – ensuring that our work adheres to core principles of transparency, responsiveness, and engagement; oversees shared measurement across SPN Affiliated Projects, Working Groups and other initiatives to enable data-driven decision making by community members; helps to engage and sustain partnerships with allied efforts initiatives; and broadens participation in SPN.
Something as massive in scope as software preservation can’t be left to a handful of institutions. The long term success of something this ambitious is to broaden the number and type of institutions taking ownership over some aspect of the work. At the same time, distributed ownership over a common agenda requires constant alignment and realignment. I am grateful to be part of a community that is dedicated to ensuring that the varied software curation and preservation efforts of organizations and individuals are making measurable progress towards ‘Saving Software, Together.'
