I'm delighted that, in a small way, the thing I wrestled with for #msudai has a connection to this.

Why does living and working in a house being renovated make me feel so tired? It's not like I'm doing the work...

Callout to my research/schol comms support people:
I'm looking for inspiration while designing a SIMPLE "CC licences for research publishing" infographic that explicitly addresses the complex issues around NC/ND/SA
- any examples out there I haven't turned up yet? Anything you're willing to share for reuse/collaboration?

Fun with data! Rough and ready visualisations of numbers extracted from Trove Newspaper headlines about travel times in hours between Melbourne and Sydney. 1st plot: blue = air travel, green = land, red - sea. 2nd plot: air only. Explainer:

In other news, seems my day a week gig at Uni of Canberra is continuing for a bit longer. Looking forward to getting stuck into the project.

It is sunny and warm and my plan for the day is to tackle the jungle of weeds that has appeared in our garden over recent weeks.

I just published an epic introduction to the new JSON write API I introduced this week in the first of the #Datasette 1.0 alphas.

The post includes two new demos and instructions on how you can try it out yourself:

If you do research (or have fun with!) large collections of images, whether of your own taking or institutionally provided ones, #Tropy is a life saver and I cannot recommend it highly enough. I've been using it since early days and am delighted with it

Zotero continues to be the best reference manager around — #FOSS, made by scholars for scholars. Upcoming features (now available for beta testing) include automatic relinking of #mendeley citations, much faster #googledocs integration, and support for #latex math in notes

If you don't use a reference manager yet (or if you're using a for-profit one like Mendeley or EndNote) you can always give #Zotero a whirl: it's free and doesn't lock you in:


Life hack: give yourself 8 to 12 hours of alone time in the morning to mentally prepare for the day.

Hello! I’m looking forward to trying #mastodon as a place to build relationships with awesome peeps around #musetech #museums #experiencedesign #digitalpublishing #lod #collectionsasdata #art #makerculture

I gave a talk to the Wikimedia Australia Community Meeting recently about the work I've been doing adding data from the National Archives of Australia to . The video's now available if you're interested: @histodons

If you missed the Symposium recently in Canberra, you can now catch up by watching the video. Find out about the project and the sorts of things we'll be working on over the next few years.

@baibi is there at about 1:12, and me at 1:22. @histodons
