Matt is an advocate for re-decentralizing the web. He’s driven by a conviction that, rather than relying on intermediaries when we exchange information, the world needs technical, social and economic infrastructure that empowers communities to create, store and exchange data directly with each other. This conviction is reflected in Matt's 2016 essay The internet has been stolen from you. Take it back, nonviolently.

At Protocol Labs, Matt contributes to stewardship of open source projects like IPFSlibp2p and Filecoin, all of which are focused on building a more secure, more equitable, decentralized web. Some of his recent publications include Instructions for Saving Endangered Data, his presentations on Storing Data Together, the work-in-progress Decentralized Web Primer and (co-authored) policy paper Why is decentralized and distributed file storage critical for a better web?

Previously Matt spent 10 years building digital repositories for large research institutions and served as technology lead for an open source collaboration that now includes over 40 of the world’s top libraries and archives.
