3. Archivists should follow social media platforms’ terms of service only where they are congruent with the values of the communities they are attempting to document. What is legal is not always ethical, and what is ethical is not always legal. Context, agency and (again) positionality matter.

2. Documentation efforts must go beyond what can be collected without permission from the web and social media. Social media collected with the consent of content creators can form a part of richer documentation efforts that include the collection of oral histories, photographs, correspondence, and more. Simply telling the story of what happens in social media is not enough, but it can be a beginning.

1. Archivists must engage and work with the communities they wish to document on the web. Archives are often powerful institutions. Attention to the positionality of the archive vis-à-vis content creators, particularly in the case of protest, is a prime consideration that can guide efforts at preservation and access.

Here's a nugget for you.

It's not your skin color that makes you white.

Meditate on that.

I thought social.coop is where all the Good Whites™ are?

Hm. I guess he's just an bad apple. Or a lone wolf. Or an isolated case.

Random White Dude thinks I'm a hypocrite because I'm not nicer to bigots.

Ha, white people are a trip, yo.

Sorry y'all we were down for a few minutes to update to 2.4.0 and compiling for webpacker on the hardware recommends shutting down the service for best results.

"When white people threaten to call the police on black people—out of anger, out of spite, out of pure vindictiveness—they are effectively saying, “I’ll kill you!”
They’re just using a legal extension of white supremacy to do it."

github.com/sinedied/backslide is a nice tool for creating HTML slide decks using Markdown. It has a self-contained mode which inlines fonts, images, stylesheets, javascript, and all.

Only thing it was missing for me was the ability to inline video and audio as well, so I added a bit to do this.

Really good experience using backslide and happy to be using something other than my working but bespoke Pandoc & DZslides workflow.

Russian Court Bans Telegram App for refusing to hand over encryption keys.

Commendable they refuse to hand over keys but now no more Telegram in Russia... The issue with #centralization made clear again. Better #federate with #matrix #XMPP

MPOW is going to be using Samvera / Hyrax, and since I'm completely new to the stack I thought I'd create a Packer build to better familiarize myself with its moving parts. So, here is that thing. It uses the Ansible roles that DCE has made available. At the moment, it's an all-in-one install and generates an AWS AMI or a Vagrant VirtualBox. It uses Nurax as its default Hyrax application but is configurable so, in theory, any other Hyrax GitHub repo could be swapped in.
