Happy SAA annual meeting week! I have a new blog post on why archivists should consider a decentralized hybrid archives conferencing model. Please share widely! https://eiratansey.com/2021/08/02/weve-got-to-stop-meeting-like-this-a-proposal-for-hacs-hybrid-archives-conference-strategy/
@TeamMidwest I like your thoughts on this. They mesh well with some discussions I had in the library world earlier this year about pre-recording conference talks (https://dltj.org/article/pre-recording-conference-talks/). A lot of the push-back was how hard it is for presenters to talk to an empty webcam. Having the presentations originate from a node would address that.
glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles. Many of us are Twitter refugees looking for an inclusive and community supported approach to social media. If any of these things sound good to you, consider joining us by contributing as little as a $1 a month on our patreon to help keep our server online. Take a look at our code of conduct.
