We're very excited to announce the latest addition to the INN Nerds team, Jack Brighton.
Jack will be joining us full-time on September 21st as our new Manager of Support, Documentation and Training.
This is a new position we've created because we want to invest more time and effort in improving our documentation and training to help INN members take full advantage of the tools we build and level up their technology skills. We also hope to develop more training and resources on best practices in digital publishing and work more effectively with the open source community and other nonprofit and independent media organizations.
Jack comes to INN from Illinois Public Media where he has served many roles during his career in journalism and technology: as a public radio producer and host, multimedia editor, web designer, digital storyteller, and university instructor.
He says his proudest moments come from helping people succeed as journalists and producers at a time of rapid change in media technology and audience behaviors.
Jack has also been deeply involved in media preservation projects funded by the Library of Congress and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, including the American Archive project and the PBCore Metadata initiative. He has also served on the PBS Digital Advisory Council and the NPR Digital Advisory Working Group, and currently serves on the advisory council of the Public Media Platform (a current INN client).
I am very excited to welcome him to the team and for all the work we know he'll do to help INN further its mission and better serve our members.
