The Berkman Klein Center's Geek Team provides high-quality technical consultation to the center's faculty, fellows, staff, and interns. But we also aid the work of many external collaborators and partners. We like to work on projects that we know will have a social impact, where the Internet, new technology, and novel data can be leveraged to create a social good. We like to work in any method that will benefit our community — from acting as consultants providing technical recommendations, to full lifecycle design/build/maintain operations. We strive to be experts in our respective fields, leaning heavily on the ability to embrace technologies that are beneficial to the overall health of the technology ecosystem and contribute to the success of the projects we engage in and the communities we engage with. In addition, we work to shape the landscape of emerging and current technology through policy and advocacy efforts with the help of the center's other unique asset, the Cyberlaw Clinic. While the Geeks team is not the first technology consultancy, we are a unique practice within an academic research center.
