This is such a great, reflective discussion of a few aspects of digital literacy and instruction that keep me up at night. https://t.co/kDtoWjgYq9

7-Elevens by city (an exercise in learning R). Generate list of North American stores ("all-na.csv") with "getsevs.sh" before running R scripts. · GitHub

Inspired by the "news" that Manitoba was again declared "Slurpee Capital of the World," I decided to learn a bit of R and generate some graphs of the distribution of 7-Elevens in North American cities. Code: https://t.co/MS4cj912NT pic.twitter.com/Ur7KopXBC5

All true. Every word.

I still want libraries and librarians to carve out a publicity stance on privacy.

I don’t know how else we convince ourselves to FIX OUR $#!+.

There’s lots of people (including fellow librarians) telling us we don’t have to, or even shouldn’t. https://t.co/dclGTofFFv

The Show Me Librarian: There’s No Room for “Priceless” in My Advocacy

This is a terrible dichotomy to make. As children's librarians we must do better. Read @amyeileenk's blog post for a thoughtful response: https://t.co/ytwuzvNYFZ https://t.co/NkmdwniFhK

The Apocalyptic Turn
Nevertheless, some noteworthy cases include: Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything, Bill McKibben’s Eaarth, McKenzie Wark’s Molecular Red, Rosalind Williams’ The Triumph of Human Empire, Donna Haraway’s Staying with the Trouble, and Isabelle Stengers’ In Catastrophic Times. And various gloomy journals from a variety of ideological perspectives – Dark Mountain, Salvage, Black Box – advance a similar line. There are many differences between these books and amongst their various authors – and some are much more hopeful about the possibilities that apocalyptic scenarios will open up, yet what unites them all is a certain level of agreement with Pope Francis’s comment that it’s time to take doomsday seriously.
