"I think at this time it’s not a detriment to have a librarian be Librarian of Congress"
As I've said many times in the past, there's this illusion that we all share all the stuff, but some people have the passwords to the systems and some people do not. It's a different tragedy of a different sort of commons when this stuff falls down. The videos are of my former colleague (as much of a ray of sunshine as she looks) who moved on to do more librarianish stuff elsewhere."All the things we can possibly come to know from our digital archives are determined by neoliberal market ideologies, which give power to profit driven corporations and private companies to organize and distribute the electric impulses hosted in ever-growing data centers. The language that has developed around digital archives and platforms, however, continues to symbolically conceal data’s material and political implications. Information in our era assumes disembodied pseudo-religious connotations such as: oceans of data, clouds of information storage, webs, wireless, etc."
