Access Humboldt
Special Projects Wizard
Eureka, CA
John is an IT consultant, digital media archivist and Special Projects
Wizard from Eureka, CA associated with Access Humboldt. He received the
2015 Buske Leadership Award for his work promoting video archiving at
the local, regional and national levels of the Alliance of Community

He founded the Community Media Archive in 2009, in partnership with the
Internet Archive and Access Humboldt, where public access TV stations
and Community Media Centers can archive their video and have them
automatically transcoded into MPEG2, MPEG4 and OGV formats. The CMA has grown to more than 120,000 videos from 90 access centers from around the country.

As part of his automated Youtube -> Archive project, he has added more
than 130,000 videos and associated metadata from access centers' Youtube & Vimeo channels to the Community Media Archive, preserving the outreach to and engagement of community members through communication methods beyond the traditional PEG (Public, Education, Government) cable TV channels.

His original research maintains metadata and statistics for the 600,000
videos in 3,300 Youtube and Vimeo channels representing the use of video
by access centers, governmental entities, schools and libraries across
the United States and Canada.

He has spoken at six national ACM and numerous ACM Regional conferences
about the Community Media Archive and assisted many access centers in
understanding how to work effectively with the Internet Archive.
