Well it is really fun to have a post I wrote about collective intelligence end up in Howard Rheingold's scop.it account on the topic. As someone who benefited greatly from "virtual community" I can't help but feel like this has its own collective intelligence validating power to it.

Digital History
Introduction

I’m an information technology specialist with the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP) in the Office of Strategic Initiatives at the Library of Congress and a doctoral student in the Graduate School of Education at George Mason University. Before coming to the Library of Congress I was the community lead for the Zotero project  at the Center for History and New Media and before that I worked for the Games, Learning, and Society Conference. I blog here and at playthepast.org.

I’m interested in how learning and knowledge work in online communities, video games and culture, and software tools for humanities scholarship. My training is in the history of science and science communication and digital history. I wrote a book for Arcadia Press about the history of Fairfax County told through postcards. I’ve also published articles in the journals Simulation & Gaming, Science Communication, and Cultural Studies of Science Education and On the Horizon. In 2009 I was chosen by Read Write Web as one of the 50+ Semantic Web Pros to Follow on Twitter, and won the CW Bright Pixel Prize for building PlayingHistory, an open collaborative directory of digital historical games and interactives.

I received my bachelors degree in the history of science form the University of Wisconsin, and my masters degree in American History with and emphasis on digital history at George Mason University. I’m also a violinist, I like to read graphic novels, and I am a big fan of my dogs Bowser and Zelda. I live in Burke Virginia with my wife Marjee Chmiel.
