John Kunze is an Identifier Systems Architect at the California Digital Library. With a background in computer science and mathematics, he wrote BSD Unix software that comes pre-installed with Mac and Linux systems. He created the ARK identifier scheme, the N2T.net scheme-agnostic resolver (which redirects over 600 kinds of "compact identifier"), and contributed heavily to Internet standards for URLs (RFC1736, RFC1625, RFC2056), archiving (BagIt - RFC8493), web archiving (WARC), and Dublin Core metadata (RFC2413, RFC2731)."
... and Dublin Core metadata (RFC2413, RFC2731, ANSI/NISO Z39.85). His influential specs and tools for digital repository microservices include Pairtree, Namaste, ReDD, oxum, ERC/ANVL, TEMPER, THUMP. Follow-on work in metadata includes creation of the Dublin Kernel and yamz.net. Recent efforts with Force11 and identifiers.org on compact identifiers enables resolution via N2T.net of over 600 identifier schemes.
