John Morrison, Researcher
John Morrison is a Researcher supporting the research and analysis needs for the 100&Change team at the Internet Archive. His previous research work has focused on the nexus between politics, economics, digital technology and social justice. This work has taken him across the globe including stints in Geneva, London, New York and most recently Washington, D.C. where he worked on an analysis project on disinformation and “fake news” in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections.
In addition to his work at the Internet Archive, Morrison works as a Project Associate at the Wikimedia Foundation. At the Wikimedia Foundation, he is supporting the research needs for the Foundation’s 2017 Movement Strategy Project.
Morrison began his career as an intern at Goldman Sachs in 2013. After graduating Boston College with a degree in economics and theological ethics, he went to work in the analyst development program at Trafigura, one of the world’s largest commodities trading houses.
He left the world of finance and commodities trading in late 2015 to join a small technology startup called Workflowy. At Workflowy, he worked directly with the CEO to redesign their product development and user research processes. He also worked as a freelance investigative reporter on issues of police brutality and systemic racism in the San Francisco Bay Area.
When not working at the Internet Archive or the Wikimedia Foundation, he spends his time hiking, swimming, writing, creating art and cooking.
