The Sloan Foundation has generously funded "Collaborating on Software Archiving for Institutions" , with 3 streams of work:

1) technical development on open source, decentralized toolkit for software archiving & replay; 2) community building and education on software archiving; and 3) optimizing machine and human workflows

AND I get to hire a software curation specialist at NYU as a part of this work! Taking applications now:

@VickyRampin @wilkie well deserved! it's so awesome the two of you are working together on this.

@edsu @wilkie thank you!! we are joined by folks not on the fedi as well -- Martin Klein (LANL), Michael Nelson (ODU), and Michele Weigle (ODU)

@platypus @wilkie thank you!! and thanks for your guidance/resources a while back about the job ad for this. I fought with HR but won -- the software curation specialist can be remote and the salary is posted with the job ad 🙌

@aparrish thanks so much!! hope we can curate and preserve your rad software as a part of this 😁
