People of Long Now

Dan Linder

IT Director

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.
