As Technical Lead, Dan develops and maintains the web infrastructure of The Long Now Foundation, as well as assisting with the various projects' technical needs as they arise. A member since 02008, he is curious about data stewardship, hardware/software survivability, and the intersection of software engineering, open-source, and nonprofits.
Prior to The Long Now, Dan was the first engineering hire at StyleSeat, and before that, he was an engineer at Al Gore's Current TV. He holds a Masters degree in Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Outside of work he enjoys cooking, the sampling of brown liquors, hiking, and tinkering on a variety of mechanical and electronic projects.
