Regency attire with @cwebber (I made both costumes ... though we couldn't find appropriate stockings for Chris's breeches)

My Roman persona, Amelia Clara, for the SCA including a nodus (the hairstyle popularized by the empress Livia) based off of a Janet Stephens tutorial

Roman two-beam upright loom. It is almost ready to weave on, but my heddle jacks are too short to create a sufficient shed, so i have to extend them before I can start weaving.

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!"

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!

@mlemweb and @cwebber explore crafting the past through experiential historical crafts, experimental archaeology, and historical reenactment. What can be gained? What pitfalls might we avoid?

@cwebber @fossandcrafts @mlemweb @craigmaloney

aww :blobcatheart: ! That was really nice to listen your interview of @vickysteeves ; and a big thanks for the end note! You can't imagine how it helps to hear that during my long days of production 👍

@cwebber @fossandcrafts

Yes, thank you SO MUCH @schluff !! I was beyond humbled to be the first requested guest 🖤

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!

My favorite episodes are ones that emphasize interdisciplinarity and gosh does this episode ever meet that criteria!

On this week's episode of @fossandcrafts we talk with @vickysteeves about opening everything in academic research (source, data, methods, documentation, etc).

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)

That's right, we're joined by @vickysteeves, FOSS-open-research-librarian-crafter extraordinaire! Plus: what can FOSS learn from game modding communities?

So, after a week and a half mostly offline due to the longest migraine I've ever had, I'm back! Still a bit photosensitive and sitting at an alternate workspace with just my laptop because my external monitor is too bright ... but we'll see how today goes

@fossandcrafts Glad to have the opportunity!

The play about Aaron was "Building a Real Boy" which is separate from the film "The Internet's Own Boy".
