Spent my working day dealing with a 5th century BC red figure lekythos (not 100% sure it's not a fake) and then an 18th century coin collection. My comfort zone is 6th and 7th century AD ceramics

So, I've imported ~25Gb of music from the Free Music Archive on open.audio using this method.

It worked beautifully, and it's now available for the whole #Funkwhale federation. Follow this library from your Funkwhale instance and you'll have access to it:

open.audio/federation/music/li

You can also visit open.audio/library/ directly to listen to all this new content! (you don't need an account ;)

It turns out that the papyrus was a forgery all along. Note that respected experts like Luciano Canfora had warned in detail about the forgery, but it was still bought for 2.5 million euros by the Compagnia di San Paolo, one of Italy's leading bank foundations. ansa.it/sito/notizie/cultura/a

The Atlantic: "Start-Ups Aren't Cool Anymore".

Start-ups were never "cool". They were just get-rich-quick kind of schemes.
