Be a box!

An archives-themed default Twitter avatar, just in time for #saa16. Don’t be an egg, be a box!

Why be an egg when you can be a carton?

So, my camera is being fussy, but I have new ribbons, and I’m bringing them to MARAC! Grab yourself a newly-redesigned DERANGER ribbon, or a NEW ARCHIVIST ribbon, or…a surprise limited edition ribbon! These super-special ribbons are my way of saying thanks to all of you who dug deep to help out archivists and archives this year, like through the Spontaneous Scholarship fund or the Shaved Beaver fund or disaster relief funds or just because you felt like helping. (And if you haven’t given yet, it’s not too late to donate!) I might run out of ribbons after MARAC, but I’ll have a new ribbon for whenever the next archives conference is.

Come find me at Session 19 (I’ll be the one ranting about internships) or the MARAC tweetup or anywhere the free food is…well, free.

(And if you’re still waiting for an SAA ribbon in the mail…I promise I didn’t forget about you!)

Missed opportunities: Deranger ribbons!

September 2, 2011

I still have some Deranger ribbons left over from SAA. If you want one, send a letter or postcard and I’ll mail one to whatever return address you put on it. I’m happy to mail ribbons overseas, but please tell me exactly how to address the envelope to you so it goes to the right place!

Send mail to:

[address temporarily removed]

(And if you’re thinking, hey, wouldn’t it be easier if I just emailed you my address? Yeah, maybe. But I like getting mail. Send something good. :) )

Deranging SAA

August 17, 2011

Derangers, come find me at SAA and I will give you one of these for your badge:

Unless you are the archivist who so generously indulged my desire to hear the phrase “XSLin’ like a felon” in an SAA webinar, in which case your ribbon is already in the mail to you. (If you aren’t coming to SAA but still want a ribbon, let me know after the conference and we’ll work something out.)

Likely places to find me are:

  • The Social Media Forum, where you’ll get to see what happens when SAA lets me work on a presentation
  • The Tweetup and Beer Roundtable
  • The Drexel reception
  • The SAA Career Center, from 11 AM-1 PM on Saturday. I will be offering career advice and hugs.
  • Anywhere with free food (students and new archivists represent!)

MARAC swag, and an anniversary party!

November 10, 2010

Hey archivists! Do you find it hard to meet new people at conferences? Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could introduce yourself, without having to, you know, introduce yourself?

My badges, let me show you them:








If you want the Deranger badge or the door hangers I made for SAA, here they are.

Just in time for MARAC!  And if you haven’t heard, this crazy little webcomic turns two on Thursday, and we’ll be celebrating in Harrisburg. Can’t make it to the party? Like last year, there will be a virtual picnic in the comments tomorrow–stay tuned!

Edit: Oh yeah, please come to my MARAC session! S14: Open to Anything: Using Open Source Products in Repositories, Friday 4-5:30 PM. No comics, but I’ve got a fun presentation written, I promise. :)
