I'm Ron. I work in a public library in Iowa and a MLIS student at Valdosta State (online). I would describe myself as a generalist. I bake bread, tinker with Linux, and watch TV in my free time.
Right now I'm interested in the idea of creating a Digital Community Archive at my public library. Kind of like a history archive, but also current stuff. I would really like to help rebuild my community which has been hollowing out my whole life.
If you haven't listened to it already:
"You only speak of green eternal economic growth because you are too scared of being unpopular. You only talk about moving forward with the same bad ideas that got us into this mess, even when the only sensible thing to do is pull the emergency brake. You are not mature enough to tell it like it is. Even that burden you leave to us children. [...] You have ignored us in the past, and you will ignore us again. We have run out of excuses, and we are running out of time. We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people."

Public Libraries. MLIS Student. Linux geek. Community Archives. I want to help public libraries share their unique resources with their community.
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
