Peter Brantley was previously Director of Scholarly Communication at Hypothesis and the Director of the BookServer Project at the Internet Archive, where he developed new business models in distributing digital books, and fostered the publication, distribution, and access to digital content based on open formats and standards.
Peter has thought deeply about one of the essential components for broad annotation of the world's knowledge: open peer review. His 2012 report for an Andrew W. Mellon-funded study on the requirements for implementing open, online peer-to-peer review reads very close to a system functional specification.
He is also the convener of the Books in Browsers conference, a summit for software developers and UX designers creating new forms of storytelling. He is a contributing editor to Publishers Weekly, and previously served on the board of the International Digital Publishing Forum, the standards-setting body for digital books.
