We’re excited to announce that Jeremy Ashkenas has joined the team as the lead developer for DocumentCloud. His previous job was at Zenbe Inc., a provider of online email and collaboration software. He’s the creator of the Ruby-Processing visualization toolkit, and a winner — twice — of the Sunlight Foundation’s Apps for America competition. Jeremy graduated from Brown University with a degree in Literary Systems.
Over the past few weeks, he’s been working on the central processing system for a DocumentCloud prototype. We are planning to open source this tool shortly … so stay tuned.
