Hello fellow glammr.us tooters, we are conducting some long overdue instance upgrading and server migration in a day or two. Expect some intermittent downtime.

NEW GAME! Why do groups of people act smart, dumb, kind, cruel? An interactive guide to networks & humans:
“The movies we collect are intimate, first-hand visual records of work and play, of traditions and spontaneous acts…and they activate memories, crucial knowledge and expertise that too often goes unrecognized.”
If there's a moral to the story it is look after those backups – and the systems needed to run them. You never know when they might be needed.

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 patreon to help keep our server online. Take a look at our code of conduct.
