Hi ausglam.space, we're on v2.7.0. You can now opt-in to being on the public profile directory by adjusting your user preferences (it's off by default).
I've also considered @darius's advice about #MastodonAdmin and I think he's right about keeping it tight, so we are now invite-only. You can invite anyone you like, and I'll accept anyone who's actually in Aus(tralasian) GLAM, but it keeps the community coherent and minimises my moderation duties.
If you were thinking of auto-deleting your old toots I have good news - I made a thing for you (me): https://github.com/hughrun/ephemetoot
"I'd always fancied seeing Bristol, so I decided to 'visit' the Bristol office to look at 'user take-up'. I actually spent three days taking MDMA at an anarcho-syndicalist house party in St Pauls, and the dissociative come-down made me realise how profoundly upsetting it was to live in a state of utter porposelessness."
This is the best thing I've read in ages.
Hey, my little sib, Bianca writes poetry. And you can get their work here:
They say “I write about stuff I wish I had seen more poetry of: queer love, people with gender neutral pronouns, living with depression and chronic pain, traveling and realizing complicated things about yourself.”
I think that sounds like a lot of people here, so I thought I’d share it with y’all. I may reboost a couple times.
This is very cool, I finally downloaded Beaker and I’m going to have a play with it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJ_WvfF3FN8
Making Space: Feminist DH and a room of one’s own.
Yesterday I read an article about a kid who ‘wasted’ his ATAR of 98 by applying to study mechanical engineering instead of, presumably, studying plastic surgery like the woman who finally broke down and quit after working 50 hours in three consecutive days.
Anyway sorry for the downer on Saturday morning. Looking forward to the day training and education is all about supporting everyone to learn at their own pace instead of competing to be king of shit mountain.

PROFESSOR: so tell me why are you all are taking this class on social media?
EVERYONE: *some variation on “I like instagram and want a job”*
ME: I’m interested in the ways social media allow companies to assert ownership over organically formed communities… *tents fingers* and how to put a stop to that
PROFESSOR (nervous): …ok
