I am hoping to network and connect with other professional and amateur digitization and archivist technicians, to aid in a project, and to basically have an avenue or group to discuss related topics!

If you are a #digitization tech or #archivist , know someone in those fields interested in networking or chatting about their work, or are a self-proclaimed #datahoarder or amateur with experience, please feel free to reach out here on Mastodon , or by email: contact [at] nabein {dot} me

There is this conference "Semantic Web in Libraries"(SWIB) which I am involved in organizing. Each year, there's a great bunch of people meeting.

You have something interesting to share about #LinkedData in libraries or related institutions? Or have some ideas on how libraries could contribute more to the growth and maintenance of the Fediverse?

Please consider a submission (which is only an abstract). The deadline has just been extended to 11 July 2022: https://swib.org/swib22/

USA Constitution question 

How is it decided/triggered to take a constitutional amendment to (1) Federal and (2) State constitutional conventions (i.e. bypassing legislative congresses)?

Brexit adjacent 

We’re going to take them to the cleaners LOL

Brexit adjacent 

Just saw Ian Botham talking as the UK Trade Envoy to Australia. He continually referred to the state he is representing as “England”, said he had no idea what is happening in Australia’s domestic energy market, and expressed surprise that the two countries never had a free trade agreement prior to Brexit (perhaps he is unaware Australia was a UK colony?).

Inspired choice, well done Boris.

Hospitality industry 

“Some ideas that have been touted include giving employees who wish to supplement their current job with one or two hospitality shifts per week a tax break on their additional income.”

These clowns have no shame. Whining about staff shortages, they’ll suggest anything except secure decently-paid careers for locals.

If you're in Naarm (or planning to be near us in the next few weeks) you could do worse than to go along to https://www.slv.vic.gov.au/handmade/ at the State Library of Victoria - it features (among other works) a printed (with a knitting machine) view of our galaxy (the process was unveilled at Linuxconf this year: https://www.youtube.com/watch)?v=c9O09IO1xl0 )

medical regulation failure 

Hough Pharma executives must have spent yesterday high fiving each other over how pathetically weak the TGA’s powers are.

Running a customer call centre and checking the efficacy of their product would cost significantly more than a measly $100k.

Ah wonderful, the only time I actually want to log in to ATO online their user account verification is borked.

I appear to have reached the "spicy cough" part of the spicy cough. 😷
