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: 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 co-founded an open source, open access repo for LIS scholarship: lissarchive.org

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

"In the Free Software movement, those who are using proprietary software are both the oppressed and the oppressor. They are the oppressed because when we use proprietary software we are limiting our own liberty. But we are also the oppressor because by using proprietary software, we are contributing to the normalization of this lack of freedom" media.libreplanet.org/u/librep

Soft launch of my command line notes, with an introduction and posts on 'ls' and 'tmux':

Trying to put pressure on myself to keep adding to it. For a while I thought I'd launch with 10 commands, but it turns out I write a lot.

In case you missed it, there's a privacy-friendly alternative to Google Play.

It's called F-Droid and only includes free open apps that don't track you:

switching.social/ethical-alter

The installation process is slightly complicated, but once it's been installed it's extremely easy to use.

You can also follow F-Droid on here at:

The FOSS world is amazing.

I'm apt updating Ubuntu on my laptop. Hundreds of new packages!

I've only contributed financially (or otherwise) to a handful of projects, but I keep getting all this other stuff for free. It's amazing.

Thank you, community.
