Our local arthouse theater has decided to make #COVID19 vaccination a requirement for entry, and my gods...
This summer, I had an intern who helped me build a physical and digital exhibit featuring stuff from our Archives.
This semester, I have an intern with whom I'm reading books and articles, and she's also going to help me with a future exhibit and with Archives reference.

"Why are hyperlinks blue?" by Elise Blanchard https://blog.mozilla.org/en/internet-culture/deep-dives/why-are-hyperlinks-blue/
Incredibly thorough history. I love stuff like this.

Not asking for a friend, only me.
"The poem below lists the reason why it is emotionally and physically costly for Indigenous, Black and racialized people to hold spaces for other people to learn about their complicity in systemic harm. Read the poem once and pay attention to the different kinds of responses it evokes in you. After you have read the poem once, read the instructions that follow for the second part of the exercise."
Before jumping into someone else's mentions:
✅ Am I being contrarian?
✅ Do I already have a relationship with this person, or am I being inappropriately familiar?
✅ Am I "ironically" doing exactly what this person just said not to do?
✅ Am I derailing another legitimate discussion in order to get on my own favourite hobby-horse or to one-up this person in my knowledge of social issues?
✅ Am I saying "Are you surprised?" when they're disappointed?
✅ Am I providing unsolicited advice?
And NOW they're offering me a "free textbook list" in return for my contact information.
