Director of Media & Access, Internet Archive

Alexis Rossi

Alexis has been working with the Internet Archive since our first service, the Wayback Machine, was launched in 2001. She currently manages all media and access for archive.org, including audio, movies, books, software, images, mass web crawls, the Wayback Machine and the archive.org web site. Her past Internet Archive projects include Open Library and the Open Content Alliance. Alexis has been working with Internet content since 1996 when she discovered that being picky about words in books (as a cookbook editor) was good training for being picky about data on computers. She spent several years as Managing Editor at ClariNet (the first online news
aggregator), worked as the Editorial Director at Alexa Internet, and as Product Manager at Mixercast. Alexis has an MLIS, concentrating on web technologies and interfaces, and enjoys making jewelry, dancing, and baking Cookie Smackdown-winning cookies.
