So I'm super appreciative of digipres.club -- but I really want to actively use an instance where I can help fund the infrastructure, and participate as a member in the decision making. ..and also learn how to run a social media co-op.
So I'm going to be moving over to @edsu and following y'all from there. I'll keep my account open here, but I would appreciate it if you could follow me over there, if you want to continue to get my updates.

I missed my bus just by a few seconds, so I went for a coffee to bide my time till the next one. The coffee was perfect, but I took a shade too long to get back & missed the bus again! Now I’m standing in the cold drizzle to wait for the third. And here it is.
"Redis dump file is 100% backwards compatible. An older dump file format will always work with a newer version of Redis."
I like that Mastodon requires you to have a code-of-conduct for it to accept new signups:
Does the code-of-conduct here effectively work as a privacy / terms-of-service policy?
Walking someone new to Ruby through installing Jekyll on their OS X laptop was insanely painful to do & explain. I feel intense guilt about this because I routinely go around promoting static sites like they are the digital preservation holy grail while comfortably elliding the whole installation process. OS X command line tools, gpg, rvm, homebrew, gem, bundler ... c'mon now.
Can I get a witness?

i wish i could say that @kayiwa and i knew about each other's lightning talks, but we didn't plan on it at all.
IMHO, ARK is one of the unsung success stories of the digital preservation community. Much of the work has been achieved through the constant attention & care (and understated genius) of CDL's John Kunze.
CDL & DuraSpace are now looking for people interested in helping sustain the work:
digipres.club is a space for folks interested in productive conversations about, well, digital preservation! If you enjoy talking about how to do memory work with computers, or even with cardboard boxes of old photos, you belong with us on digipres.club. Many of us are/were Twitter users looking for an inclusive and community supported approach to social media. If any of these things sound good to you, consider joining us now.
