I'm looking for anyone who'd be willing to be interviewed or have a chat about their experiences of using technology in the 80s, 90s, and early 2000s as part of a #DigiPres project to document the growth and change in that time.
Please drop me a reply or DM if you're interested.
Who am I looking for? Software people, gamers, enthusiasts, fellow nerds... anyone who used and/or loved technology around the start of the PC boom and birth of the WWW around the world.

Librarians of the Fediverse: I'm looking for discussion / references on catalogs, cataloguing, ontologies and classifications, etc.
I've been working with the FreeLCC / FreeLCSH files from LoC, and am looking _as a researcher/author_ for ways to better organise my own research materials, projects, and writings.
I'm vaguely familiar with the area, but would appreciate references to practices/concepts.
