I'm a librarian focusing on research reproducibility + research data management.
I gave an interview about me/my work: http://acrl.ala.org/dh/2018/04/04/repro/
I love FOSS, open access, open educational resources, open EVERYTHING
I hate the corporate capture of scholarship
I also love my super cute black cat Little Boss
may or may not have bought this e-ink open source smart watch that I just came across: https://www.crowdsupply.com/sqfmi/watchy
the replies to this reasonable take hurt my soul. creatives really think copyright helps them and can't imagine a system that instead provides needs. they also believe that art in the public domain has no value. most art in museums is in the public domain. it's... very valuable.

the copyright lobby has done such a good job expressing the idea that corporate greed helps everyone that believes they might get rich maybe someday.
the automatic assumption that your PhD is worth more than our MLIS/MIS/years of experience is what pisses people off, SHOCKER!
There's a good thread about PhD havers in academic libraries on the birbsite: https://twitter.com/emilyhiggs24/status/1366922299560058881
when people get mad about PhD havers & GLAM work, I can guarantee you that it's the PhD havers who think they can walk in and do our job on day 1 and have no respect for the field and NOT just anyone who happens to have the degree. a lot of GLAM work is 2nd career for people and that's totally ok. the sad thing is in GLAMs, you get A LOT of the former PhD haver type & it hurts our work a lot.
Librarian for research data management & reproducibility. Into open scholarship in all it's forms!
