The Peter E. Jackson Award at IIS2014

The SIIA Content Division Board developed the Peter Jackson Award to honor the memory of Peter Jackson, Ph.D. (pictured right), who had a profound impact on the B2B publishing industry. Dr. Jackson (1948 – 2011) was Thomson Reuters chief scientist and Vice President of research and development. He was also very involved in SIIA, serving on the Content Division Board and participating in many SIIA-driven initiatives and activities. He had an important and meaningful effect on those who worked with him. He was thoughtful, generous with his time, and genuinely interested in the thoughts and ideas of others. He was also a critical thinker who constantly pushed for innovation and was extremely giving to his community.

The Peter Jackson Award recognizes individuals who, like Peter, have been innovators in the information industry and who are generous and inspirational to the people and community around them.

The first Peter E. Jackson Award honoree was Brewster Kahle, Director & Co-Founder, Internet Archive. SIIA’s Kathy Greenler Sexton had this to say about Kahle in 2012:

Brewster Kahle is an industry pioneer who has dedicated his career to philanthropy and efforts to improve and preserve digital content. Because of his work, the Internet Archive now offers a staggering 85 billion pieces of web geology.  His unyielding vision and creativity has made it possible for our society to chronicle the growth of the Internet and continually celebrate the lasting impact of digital content. In the same spirit as Dr. Jackson, Kahle has demonstrated tremendous commitment to advancing digital media, and in doing so, has been an inspiration to so many of us.

Last year’s award was presented to Cambridge Information Group, Vice Chairman, James P. McGinty. During 2013′s Information Industry Summit, McGinty accepted the award:

I’m humbled and gratified to receive the Peter Jackson award. Anyone receiving an award for innovation in a corporate environment knows there had to be lots of people involved to make something happen. My bosses at D&B and at Cambridge Information Group gave me the resources and encouragement to take risks, and many colleagues supported my efforts – I accept the award on their behalf.

This year’s award recipient will be announced CODiE Award Luncheon at IIS 2014.
