Today it is exceptionally warm. Tomorrow it may snow! Enjoying the soft warm air for now.

I am reading up on my PSOAs, which seem to be causing me pain. Really enjoying the Core Balance website. I’m also listening to David Goggins on Joe Rogan¬†on my walk today, who incidentally talks a lot about his PSOAs and also facing fears.

Part of what is motivating me to write is in facing my own fears, my introvertedness on the web, which has been with me since the early days of blogging when I attempted as early as 2004. We’ll see.

Another motivation is exploring the ideas of the open web. In December I got to hear Herbert van de Sompel speak on this topic, and I’ve been inspired to try to curate my own digital identify.


It was a long weekend for me, and I forgot my coffee on the kitchen counter this morning! Good thing for emergency K-cups.

I saw Black Panther with my family this weekend. I really enjoyed it, especially the technology that is based on nature. Shuri was a hit with me and my daughters.

This morning I’m reading this CNI report on institutional repositories, as I mull over the questions and possibilities for us regarding our IR, our digital collections, and how to preserve all of that as well as our open access press materials.
