I'm here if you want to chat/call and vent! Also happy to angry hype you to anyone

@ted yes there are some folks in the library who donate and I just ... like ... we're the MOST underpaid! come on!

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!

Do you ever get so mad that your limbs feel weightless, right like they do before a fight?
