Write here a stanza from a poem that's a returning thought for you:
Nevermore ‎· k8s ‎· 3
E fieramente mi si stringe il core, A pensar come tutto al mondo passa, E quasi orma non lascia. (Giacomo Leopardi) ‎· MayaBastanza

If you followed the early days of soc media and the tech boom, this is in some way part of your/our community. Disheartening reality. Quinn very bravely, and straightforwardly deals with this instance, but also wider issue. If anyone needs to decompress about any of this, please feel free to here or in another channel. ‎· Micah
Thanks for the linkage, John. ‎· Micah

A strategic email CC line is the original subtweet.
My friend works in the climate science NGO/GO area, and when people repeatedly wouldn't respond to her, she would cc' Barack Obama on her next email to them. ‎· Meg Vmeg ‎· 8
What word is your favourite to intentionally bend its pronunciation? (‘mispronounce’ some would say)

Welp, so there's an online registration I have to regularly create accounts. And the javascript form validation rejects some newer, ICANN-era TLDs (e.g. .museum, .tech, mobi, etc). So word is being sent up the chain from tech support (supposedly), but in the meantime here's a how it might not be that hard (if you're familiar with JS libraries) to hack around the tomfoolery: There's a Chrome extension called Resource Override.
The tutorial video on the extension home page is really helpful. I had not tried to live edit page code for some time, so wasn't sure the easiest approach these days (you can breakpoint and reload a live page and try to stay one step ahead of the runtime and change code on the fly, but it's trickier). ‎· Micah

I… am… losing my faculties… because I do not remember the bread and cold cuts scene. Like, at all.
@orgmonkey, finally got a chance to watch—thank you. It's just a masterpiece little/big bread comedy, and so much more. ‎· Micah ‎· 1

Last weekend my SO's colleague 2 cubicles over not feeling well called in sick for Tues, that day had a stroke on the stairs at home, fell, fractured spine, rushed to hospital and put on life support; CT scan showed no brain activity, yesterday taken off life support and she passed away 45 minutes thereafter.

I like it when librarians talk inside baseball; I enjoy it more than actual baseball.
Well then you'll love this thing where the LCSH isn't displaying for the ebooks from one vendor, but it is being searched, so I can get all the functionality from LCSH searching but can't actually teach it to my students. ‎· lris ‎· 4
yesterday student needed three types of articles about "modern world dictators eschewing journalists to engage with their constituents" 1) peer review 2) long-form journalistic articles >2,000 words 3) data-driven journalism. Stupid assignment. Long conversation with instructor about how stupid the assignment was. Got nowhere with prof.; did manage to help student feel better about what he was able to find. ‎· Stephªnℹ︎eCogScℹ︎Lℹ︎brªrℹ︎ªn ‎· 1
