I should probably do a proper masto

I'm Vicky. I'm a librarian focusing on research reproducibility + research data management.
I gave an interview about me/my work recently:

I love FOSS, open access, open educational resources, open EVERYTHING

I hate the corporate capture of scholarship

I co-founded an open source, open access repo for LIS scholarship:

I also love my super cute black cat Little Boss & my partner @remram44

Any library folks know what happen to "The Loon" on birdsite? Am I blocked or did they get off twitter?

Are there any existing/openly available controlled vocabularies for cataloging computer hardware?

Sorry I've been gone a lot, Fediverse. It feels like my life and to-do list is on fire.

faculty member: so we are thinking about making a journal, what are the steps.
me: well, it's really very simple, *drops ream of paper, emails 35 links*

remake of _You've Got Mail_ except the Joe Fox character is a computer programmer making a program to generate romantic comedy scripts in bulk and the Kathleen Kelly character writes romcoms in the traditional intention-typical way, and also they're both trans women who communicate anonymously mainly through an increasingly arcane system of masto alts, also it's probably set in bushwick instead of the upper west side

a paper hoax does not show the field is bad. you've only shown 1. the venue is not too rigorous and 2. if you try hard enough, you can get any paper through. that stuff specifically sucks but it doesn't magically say anything in general. reproducibility, not correctness, is still the goal of science publishing.
