Pinned oot

HELLO! I used to be Vicky Steeves, then @remram44 and I got married, so now I'm Vicky Rampin, so I'm doing another

I'm a librarian focusing on research reproducibility + research data management.
I gave an interview about me/my work: acrl.ala.org/dh/2018/04/04/rep

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

Love to go to the ER twice in one week. If I owe you anything, I'm sorry but it's not happening until late next week earliest 😶

It's nothing contagious and not COVID-19, but I'm in pain 😖

The Internet Archive is celebrating its 25th anniversary:

anniversary.archive.org/

I noticed that while there have been many "captures" of the page, none of the videos seem to play back.

As an experiment I used Rhizome's Conifer/Webrecorder to record the page including its videos, exported the WARC file, and embedded it on my static website using the ReplayWeb.page web component:

inkdroid.org/web-archives/ia25

"institutional courage" 

also so many of the issues in organizations could be resolved with way more robust unions. I'm totally serious. Stop over-thinking this y'all. The only way to reduce hierarchy in a hegemonic institution is to recognize that workers get to share in that power through the form of a legally binding contract.

I'm ok now, resting at home, but YIKES.

'Shipping Up To Boston' was actually the Dropkick Murphys AO3 account name

I'm so anxious about all the things I have to do and people want to do PR for a project I'm on and it's making me more anxious aaaaaa

Github Copilot is pronounced "Copy-lot"
