Champions of Change
Eric Kansa is an archaeologist and a computer geek, with a passion for making our knowledge of the human experience and our shared cultural heritage, available for everyone to explore and debate. Frustrated with the pervasive lack of access to quality research data in the humanities and social sciences, Eric spearheaded the development of Open Context, an open access publishing venue for data in archaeology and related fields. Eric is an active and vocal member of a growing community in the US and abroad dedicated to better ethics and practices in sharing and preserving knowledge of the past.
