Jason Griffey Selected as a Fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center, Sarah Glassmeyer Selected as Berkman Affiliate

First, Jason Griffey.

This morning Jason was named a fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.

Here’s the Blurb About Jason From the Berkman Announcement:

Jason Griffey is a librarian, technologist, and founder/principal at Evenly Distributed. He will explore communities’ engagement with open, inexpensive hyperlocal digital networks, with special emphasis on bridging inequality of information access.

At the beginning of 2015 Griffey’s “Measure the Future” project was awarded a $135,000 Knight News Challenge on Libraries grant.

In 2014, The LibaryBox Project, also led by Jason Griffey received a Knight Foundation Prototype Grant. More on LibraryBox here.

A recent keynote presentation by Jason is embedded at the bottom of this post.

Of course, these are only a few of Jason Griffey’s accomplishments and awards. Learn more on his work on http://JasonGriffey.net/ and via his Twitter stream.

Second, today’s announcement also points out that librarian Sarah Glassmeyer who was named a fellow in April at the Harvard Library Innovation Lab will also be affiliated with the Berkman Center.

We’ve embedded a 2013 presentation by Sarah at the bottom of this post and you can review her accomplishments, publications, etc. here.

Bottom Line: Congratulations and Kudos to Jason and Sarah! A big win for all involved including the entire library community.
