I should probably do a proper masto #introduction
I'm Vicky. I'm a librarian focusing on research reproducibility + research data management.
I gave an interview about me/my work recently: 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 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
Like, using R to do analysis of a dataset? Great. Gorgeous. Make your funky beautiful charts.
Integrating R code into a product? 😬😢
She's also been under the kotatsu all day with me while she does virtual school 😣🥰
Episode 21: Vicky Steeves on Reproducibility, Open Research, & Librarians (... and game modding) https://fossandcrafts.org/episodes/21-vicky-steeves.html
That's right, we're joined by @vickysteeves, FOSS-open-research-librarian-crafter extraordinaire! Plus: what can FOSS learn from game modding communities?
why are so many people saying "the fediverse has done way more than w3c. screw them" ... folks *waves hands around* this shit works because a bunch of people volunteered their time to standardize things. you can hate the policies of one such working group, but it's not magic. those people deserve credit and not such erasure.
Hopefully of interest to digipres.club and the fediverse - Software Preservation Network is recruiting new members for working groups!
(You don't need to be or work for a SPN member to join! Just an interest in software + digital preservation)
I'll be co-coordinating the new Community Engagement Collaborative, which is a working group aimed particularly at outreach, events, and welcoming new members/folks into the SPN circle. Happy to answer questions!
Data & reproducibility librarian. Open EVERYTHING (code, scholarship, edu resources, etc.)!
