My employer has insisted today that I remove the categories of 'Digitization' and 'Digital Preservation' from my position description and replace them with 'Archival Expertise'.
I was an archivist for 4 years. I am no longer an archivist and don’t do archival work - I’m just in the archives dept.

Did you know my !!con West talk from February is online? You should watch me talk about old video games and obsolete text encodings! https://youtu.be/t37Cr3FDyvU
Someone / people(?) threatened to release a bunch of Radiohead minidiscs from the mid-late 90s. Instead of paying the ransom, Radiohead put the work on Bandcamp with proceeds going to benefit Extinction Rebellion — what an excellent response! Here's the link https://radiohead.bandcamp.com/
An Archivematica sticker finally found it's way onto my laptop. thanx, @ashley
@ashley Matilda, my sweet digipres kitty. I miss her.
