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
👍 Stuff I like
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.
