Figuring out how to architect the Vine archive for this outcome was no small feat, and should be a prototypical example for how to design for the web archive.
… now if only any of the people involved would return my calls :-) If you've got a lead please let me know! firstname.lastname@example.org
btw, that chart image was a slide in a brief talk I gave this morning:
Archives on the Web: The Curious Case of the Vine Archive
Pretty excited to have revived the Reading Archivists blog, spread it far and wide my GLAMR friends https://readingarchivists.wordpress.com/
I read Dan Cohen's "Back to the Blog" and can't stop thinking about it and want to see a revival of archivist blogs. https://dancohen.org/2018/03/21/back-to-the-blog/
The extremely venerable Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (of notable "Doomsday clock" fame) has made their current issue about climate change fully open-access for the next few months https://thebulletin.org/blog/whats-new-bulletin/resilience-and-climate-threat-guest-edited-alice-c-hill

My research collaborators & I have been undertaking a major effort to identify every archive in the US, and some of our early maps show how badly we need this data - existing data sets don't come close to what we've turned over. Please share! https://repositorydata.wordpress.com/2018/03/07/making-archives-visible-through-maps/
"In the face of an economic system that atomizes us and an academic job market that pits us directly against one another, friendship is a powerful ethical and political practice." https://www.chronicle.com/article/Not-Here-to-Make-Friends/242731?key=Vsp5df7WwhGNPuakdKhVXuY2xBVYdX-e9_TJuRT3vza-aw7DSHVwfePVBUwKy-NKaGIxV3NSTnhfamZwRVc4UUxXLThJcmZ1SThsNzhCdlZEZzh0LVhIc1ZfZw
So I'm super appreciative of digipres.club -- but I really want to actively use an instance where I can help fund the infrastructure, and participate as a member in the decision making. ..and also learn how to run a social media co-op.
So I'm going to be moving over to @edsu and following y'all from there. I'll keep my account open here, but I would appreciate it if you could follow me over there, if you want to continue to get my updates.
If you follow @email@example.com and have ever wondered what the most liked tweets were:

Archivist for the people, person for the planet.
Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.
"An academic microblog that you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"
(Participation is, of course, optional)
Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @firstname.lastname@example.org and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
