I live in Naarm/Melbourne and was born and grew up in palawa country/Tasmania.
I'm a professional librarian, dilettante computer programmer, and amateur system administrator.
Check out my monthly newsletter Marginalia about things I've been reading or my weekly newsletter Library & Learning Links of the Week which does what is says on the tin.
I co-founded newCardigan, an independent social organisation for GLAM workers.
Previously I served on the VALA Committee for 7 years, and the In the Library With the Lead Pipe Editorial Board for two years.
I also host some online spaces:
Aus GLAM Blogs collects blog posts from Australasian workers in cultural institutions. It runs on my Rockpool software.
ausglam.space is a social media platform for the same people, running Darius Kazemi's Hometown fork of Mastodon
yawp - Publish social media posts from the command line
pocketsnack - KonMari your Pocket tsundoku
ephemetoot - Delete your old toots periodically
lette.rs - Make static site publishing less painful
See GitHub for all my public coding work
Check out Against the grain and Tech won't save us if you're looking for something to listen to. Also cardiCast - the newCardigan podcast.
Gemini is a fun new protocol running on the Internet. It's like the Web but without all the annoying bits.
Rust is a powerful programming language designed for safety and performance. I've been learning how to write compiled software programs with it, which is pretty cool!
I'm also a big fan of running hot water.

You should subscribe to Logic Magazine and read CrimethInc. I also really appreciated Real Life (RIP).
Tyson Yunkaporta's Sand Talk changed my life. Maybe it will change yours.
