I had a bit of a scare this morning on a hike with my dog through a forest near my house. We ran into another friendly dog and while they were playing they took off around a corner in the trail for no more than 30 seconds, but only the other dog returned.
After 30 minutes of waiting and calling for her, I ran back a couple of miles to the head of the trail where she was quietly waiting for me. I was so happy to see her!

This Memorial Day we in the US *must* remember the legacy of the Tulsa Race Massacre that happened 100 years ago, and is still with us today in the resurgence of white supremacy.
Reparations is logic & justice for the survivors of an atrocity for which no one was held accountable.

While tuning into some nice work going on at https://publicdatalab.org/projects/listening-to-forests/ I was reminded of this silly little web page I created a few years ago to let you listen and combine sounds of animals (mostly birds) from around the world.

I just heard a truly awful piece on NPR Morning Edition about patents for COVID19 vaccine that compared them to chocolate cake.
Their initial point that patents lack details to implement the vaccine was good. But the conclusion that opening patents would ruin vaccine production and deplete the supply of needed ingredients was ridiculous.
How about concluding that the global north needed to do more than just open up patents? These corporations are fucking insidious.

I've been getting some bug reports for a tool I've developed from people on Windows. Unfortunately I don't have easy access to a Windows computer, but I discovered that a Windows 10 instance is just a `snap install clouds` command away.
I'm into how the web & archival practices meet in people's daily lives. Stop by and say hi!
