I hold a Masters of Library and Information Science from UCLA’s Graduate School of Education and Information Studies. I have a specialization in informatics.
I currently work with the University of Illinois and the California Digital Library on the Data Management Plan Tool (or DMPTool), which helps researchers describe how they will use their data so they can get research grant funding and better share raw scientific data and findings.
Drawing on my training in informatics, I have also designed a tabletop game called Arroyo with a small development team of other nerds. It is available for free at cactuscatgames.com and you can visit my website at www.itsdanphipps.com.

Dan Phipps, a blastronaut who has a MLIS from UCLA and works at the California Digital Library on the Data Management Plan Tool joins the gang to teach them some facts about how to collect data, what it means, and how to use it get the results you want when it comes to crafting perfect jokes. Also, the group discusses Crock pots, Craigslist, and finally bring back the “scuttleback”.
