Sometimes at work I have to refer to "big-S Software" or "little-s software", and now I will force you all to learn why
Hopefully of interest to digipres.club and the fediverse - Software Preservation Network is recruiting new members for working groups!
(You don't need to be or work for a SPN member to join! Just an interest in software + digital preservation)
I'll be co-coordinating the new Community Engagement Collaborative, which is a working group aimed particularly at outreach, events, and welcoming new members/folks into the SPN circle. Happy to answer questions!
I was hoping we would get this out before the winter break so as not to be trying to promote new resources during *all this*, but oh well:

I couldn't get it together to actually apply to Logic School's first cohort - any digipres clubbers interested in doing some kind of follow-along with them in the spring?
We literally had a request today from the art gallery that was like "hey what do we do about Flash" so thanks @despens for the quick primer!
@ashley inspired me to do my own end-of-year review thing! this year was terrible and I felt terrible for most of it but at the same time there were a few very bright spots that I would never take back! life is confusing!
