i did small biz desktop support for years. oh, the stories. i recall one person who had a detailed folder structure built inside their Outlook (ms email client) Trash. They filed things carefully. In the trash. And were mad when the trash got auto-dumped one day.

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.
