@platypus @TeamMidwest when CMU posted for a digital archivist back in 2017, I applied & as part of the app had to specify my salary expectation (no range given, of course!). They contacted me for a phone interview, I agreed, then they told me the max salary was high 40s. I pulled out before interviewing and I know of at least 2 others who did too. They went on to openly tell people the search was unsuccessful because of lack of qualified candidates
NDSA Levels of Preservation Reboot Project Implementation Subgroup Survey
We hope you might take the time to complete the following survey & let us know what you think of the Levels, especially what you like most about them, & where they might need a rethink. And please note, the survey isn’t just for those people who are already using the NDSA Levels. If you don’t intend to use them or have decided they don’t meet your needs we are also interested in hearing from you.
@sabrams yup. And get the old folks in your family to start emailing a different address...
@sabrams I purposely slept through it so I know very little about what happened this morning. Sounds like you know more than me...
@sabrams I had Protonmail for a while (Dennis uses it) but I was never able to get myself fully transitioned over. But I found the u/x not objectionable, and like that you can get a VPN through Protonmail as well.
@landlibrarian I’d still love to see a method that can run locally and isn’t reliant on machine learning/algorithmic biases/descriptive metadata...that possible method seems to be perceptual hashing. One day!
@landlibrarian ooooh, definitely! Thanks for sharing this
Opened up the FRED all of 3 times this week, but finally have found the ideal zip tie situation to keep the cord for the imaging shelf from getting stuck 🎉 https://digipres.club/media/Lt7elEo8-NSx7GGuKfo
@bitsgalore thanks a ton, you (and your blog post) really helped me! ddrescue worked on the first attempt with this disc
@bitsgalore thanks! So is ddrescue the first tool you attempt imaging cdroms and dvds with?
@ashley thank you! I love these, esp the digital forensics, I think it makes what can be very intimidating much more approachable! Just what I need 👍
@alissa thanks! Yes this is helpful!
