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
It's been a tough month, such that I haven't had a chance to properly hype: I've been published!!!
The Handbook of Archival Practice is a new and really neat encyclopedic snapshot of current activities around preserving both analog and digital materials. There's a great balance of traditional and emerging concerns, and I was kindly invited to contribute the entry on "Emulation"!
I didn't get the other 4 assignments done and I needed to do that today, *deep breath* FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK
If you've raised your wages but you still can't attract any applicants, it's not because nobody wants to work, it's because you didn't raise it enough. Keep raising it, and then once you start getting applications, you'll know you've reached the pay scale to attract workers.
You would think capitalists would do this instead of bitch constantly to the WSJ and the NYtimes
Doc-minded colleagues: does anyone know of good + accessible tools or libraries for creating help-text overlays or guided actions on a web site?
Like, something that can be integrated into a front-end client that enables a "tutorial" mode with scripted actions and text you can advance through to explain the interface
Framasoft published this morning a donation campaign for 2022. I had the honor to fully illustrate it. You can flip more than thirty illustrated cards and discover this way this not-for-profit org.
Framasoft is really important to me. Pls support them💜
Reading audiobooks is still reading.
If you say you read an audiobook you don't have to "correct" yourself. I'd argue that you /shouldn't/, that you'd get less correct.
There's no need to say "well no I didn't read it" if it was an audiobook. There's no need to put "reading" in scare quotes.
It's reading just as much as reading print is.
I know there are worse problems, but it sucks having my favored reading format denigrated by sighted people, even to the point of them denying it's "real."
