Are libraries grabbing onto that one stable thing (print material) during a crisis because that's all they think about? Despite trying to tell the public 'we're more than just books' for years. Seems like a huge step backwards, and shows how much lip service makerspaces, third place, movements are. #reset
Q3. It's been really interesting seeing what services have been pushed, and moved online. The huge push here and in the US is very much focused on print material (click and collects, deliveries). Despite eresouces being a thing for over a decade. #reset
I've been thinking about Q2 today and wonder if this is the time we can demand a return to the original FTTH NBN plan. I see a lot of libraries say they needed to reopen to provide basic internet access, but that is just a bandaid solution. The local gov area I work for is one of the poorest metro areas in terms of internet access #reset
I've been thinking about disaster capitalism all day with Rio Tinto destroying First Nation sacred sites in WA today 😡 #reset

A writer with weird ideas and a polytheism fixation. My alter ego lives in the library working with tech.
For a librarian, business /is/ pleasure.
