Pinned oot

I just gave a talk at about -- my Sloan funded project looking at archiving source code + its contextual ephemera (e.g. issue threads). The talk slides are here for any interested parties:

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

Block recommendation 

btw for masto folks:

if you're black or bipoc and have ever wanted to get into podcasting or blogging online but don't have the technical knowledge setting up websites and servers or do not know how to edit audio / really how to structure and record a show

hit me up, I am happy to help people get setup with blogging platforms for podcasting or writing

I am more than happy to edit podcasts for free for black folks on the tl

Anyway here's color-corrected Geordi Dislike / Georgi Like template for all your meme-ing needs :blobcatfingerguns:​

As your Riot Dad I need you to drink water and carry water and cliff bars or other high calorie food with you.

You know what this means?

You get a fanny pack and some cargo pants. The benefit of this is having pockets for food and water so you won't pass out, but also you can carry sharpies for writing NLG numbers on people's arms who may not have a sharpie
You can also carry your meds!

If you need medication I recommend taking your bottles with enough for two to three days keep it on you.

good afternoon to everyone except liberals hand-wringing about property damage

Result of the 1h commented #krita speedpainting during #LGM2020 @LGMeeting , thank you if you attended the workshop! (I'll post a HD video record later today)

Like oh yeah MS loves Linux and open source now, sure, but that's because they _won_. Free desktops are essentially zero in the market, even Mac OS isn't a viable option for a lot of people, and they successfully capitalize on that in extremely predatory ways

trying to keep my patience in an all-day online retreat with my department today :blobheartcat:

Fuck Microsoft. They take FOSS work, both technical and conceptual, without so much as attribution; they collaborate with the police and ICE; they destroyed the personal computing market almost singlehandedly.

the bummer of this panel is that the panelists are equivocating free with open :( they keep calling GitHub an open platform when that couldn't be further from the truth

What I'm watching now: Writing manuscripts on GitHub: Can automated software replace publishers?

Live streamed on YT:

my beloved @remram44 keeps telling me I should make a "done" list instead of a "to do" list to help manage my MH issues, so I thought I'd share some stuff I've "done" that I am proud of:

* first data deposit made to the Qualitative Data Repository (!!
* first research leave approved!
* a few panel proposals for virtual conferences are finished & submitted
* IRB supplement for in-depth interviews done & waiting for approval

so many people follow me! I have to follow some back, but there are so many profiles with little-to-no toots and no photos. Trying to sift through is tough. I'm sorry!!

A periodic reminder that you should back up your own Masto account by downloading your archive

I'm not posting this for any particular reason other than that it's good to make backups and sometimes servers just go down
