I *really* enjoyed this talk by @anxiaostudio about the narrative forms of memes on the web & social media -- it is jam packed full of references and amazing Internet stories. I can't wait for the book to arrive!

Discard Studies + The Dirt Show more
"Discard studies is an emerging field that takes waste and wasting as its topic of study. To keep practitioners up-to-date, Discard Studies publishes The Dirt, a monthly compilation of recent publications, positions, opportunities, and calls for proposals in the field."
I'm interested in how the web & archival practices meet in people's daily lives.
social.coop is a a coop-run corner of the fediverse, a cooperative and transparent approach to operating a social platform. We are currently closed to new memberships while we improve our internal processes and policies, and plan to re-open to new folks when that work is complete. [9/2/2018]
