Hey, my library is hiring a collections coordinator position: bit.ly/38RqKeV

When I stay at fancy hotels, I pick up the Wall Street Journal for similar reasons

i rarely go back and listen to a newly discovered podcast from Episode 1 through the current episode, but I am just THIS OBSESSED with Know Your Enemy, a leftist podcast on the intellectual architecture of the conservative movement stitcher.com/podcast/know-your

Planning a research trip and stumbled across a mention of this pamphlet marxists.org/archive/nearing/O and wow this dude seemed fascinating en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Ne (@platypus have you heard of him?)

i know I married the right man because earlier today he texted me "librarians are good and publishers are bad" and it had actually nothing to do with this story but everything to do with who was being helpful to him for a work-related conundrum he's in newsroom.publishers.org/resear

hot dog, I have not had an inbox < 300 emails since mid-2017 and today I achieved it. (yes I keep track of how many emails are in my inbox at the end of every day because of course I do)

i'm reading a biography of FDR right now (Traitor to His Class by H.W. Brands) and folks let me tell you this is a hell of a time in the 21st century to read about what was going down in the interwar period

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Am I missing any associations that should be on my list of associations that have either committed to salary transparency/are considering it/are being targeted?

Jason Scott is the internet version of the Collyer Brothers.

Good on AMIA for joining the wave of salary disclosure requirements. MPOW is posting a job ad soon, and while I have some other issues with the job for institutional reasons, I succeeded in convincing HR to post the salary because I could simply point to this wave of organizational trends instead of my usual ranting about labor practices. amianet.org/wp-content/uploads

wow it's really depressing to see how the Quaker history and archives conference is so heavy on pre-20th century history. Nothing about the plowshares or sanctuary movement? Nothing even about Bayard Rustin? seriously? Someone stop me from submitting a 2020 paper proposal about my forever Quaker crush Ursula Franklin library.guilford.edu/cqha/past

Finally read the bananas-pants Away emotional abuse in the workplace story. The buried lede of all these stories about really awful startup cultures is that capitalism is working just as it is intended - by reinventing itself to seem like a force for good on the outside while retaliating without mercy internally whenever workers organize to counteract the inclinations of those at the top hoarding all of the benefits.

The UF professor who had too many books story is giving me flashbacks to the time I dated a real Piece of Work who had stolen a copy of a book by Herman Hesse from his hometown public library. When I was like "WTF dude" he justified it by saying no one in his town was as likely to read it as him. I wish I had dumped him then and there but I was young and dumb.

Moving previously external-facing webpages from public sector entity websites to intranets is a form of enclosure, change my mind

I was forced to attend a 2-hour workshop led by a Chicago MBA consultant who uses words like "ideate" and I managed to work in a joke about capitalism, how is your Monday morning going?
