At the end of this week's episode of @fossandcrafts I invite people to send us pictures of their historical crafts/experimental archaeology/historical reenactments/etc so I figured I'd start it out. Here are some of the craft projects I talked about in the episode!
We'll start with me spinning on a Turkish drop spindle
Crafting, costuming, history, archaeology, and social engagement ... this week's episode of @fossandcrafts is the intersection of my favorite things!
New episode of @fossandcrafts: "Crafting the past... or trying to!" https://fossandcrafts.org/episodes/22-crafting-the-past.html
We spend some time talking about historical crafting for fun, for education, and/or for entertainment/immersion. There's both positives and potential negatives to this, the latter especially involving awareness about what (or who) might be missing...
Anyway! There have been a few me-oriented episodes lately... nice to do a much more @mlemweb oriented one ;)
Episode 22: Crafting the past... or trying to! https://fossandcrafts.org/episodes/22-crafting-the-past.html
New episode of @fossandcrafts! @mlemweb and I are joined by @vickysteeves to talk about open and reproducible research, FOSS and library sciences, and even a conversation about what the FOSS world can learn from game modding communities! https://fossandcrafts.org/episodes/21-vicky-steeves.html
My favorite episodes are ones that emphasize interdisciplinarity and gosh does this episode ever meet that criteria!
It was also great to have a chat with someone whose interests in academics, computing, and fiber arts intersect so much with my own!
With my recent C920 webcam purchase, I decided to give it a test by using it and another generic webcam with OBS Studio to create a multi-perspective live 1080p live stream of my kids' Leopard Gecko enclosure. It streams to RTMP nginx proxy on the same box so that other computers on the LAN can connect via e.g. VLC.
My kids love watching it and positioning the cameras (C920 as a top view, the lower-quality camera as a cute ground-level face view); it feels like a zoo exhibit.
Episode 21: Vicky Steeves on Reproducibility, Open Research, & Librarians (... and game modding) https://fossandcrafts.org/episodes/21-vicky-steeves.html
That's right, we're joined by @vickysteeves, FOSS-open-research-librarian-crafter extraordinaire! Plus: what can FOSS learn from game modding communities?
@fossandcrafts Glad to have the opportunity!
The play about Aaron was "Building a Real Boy" http://dixonplace.org/performances/building-a-real-boy/ which is separate from the film "The Internet's Own Boy".
I love this @fossandcrafts podcast AND episode featuring @brainwane 😻 https://fossandcrafts.org/episodes/18-sumana-harihareswara.html
