Really noticing how federation works as I made this account but didn't really follow many accounts from it.

Is down for others, and if so, is there anything I can do to help?

when you're texting your sister, who also works for a museum, about visiting a different museum

I've used this search to see what kinds of things people are talking about and linking to, and have even tried to answer questions about the collection, though it's kind of hit and miss on whether the tweeter seems to care that someone tried to answer at all. It's fine; I don't log them as reference requests.

I have a saved search over on the twitter site for the keywords [computer history] and for a while now the results have been rendered almost entirely useless because a single account going by the name "computer history" is posting hundreds of times per day.

I don't see how it could be anything but a spammer, but it doesn't repeat links that often, so it's not that easy to identify what the target is.

Starting point: Here's a table with no guidelines on how to structure the entries. Please fill it out collaboratively.

Result: Multiple bullet points within cells.

Guess it's only appropriate that this archivist job for an organization known for its grants is a contract project job with a three-year term

Still trying to figure out how to approach the multiple mastodon accounts thing.

Also, hi, I'm an archivist at a museum where I focus mostly on digital preservation. I'll probably stay with as my main instance for now, but looking forward to seeing how develops. Mastodon 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 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.
