Non-physical resources acquitions
I was fortunate to be able to spend some time in Washington, D.C., for the Joint Conference on Digital Libraries (JCDL 2012) last week. I went as part of a group from the Center for Informatics Research in Science and Scholarship at GSLIS, where I currently work on the DH Curation Guide. The attendees were a diverse bunch: many from libraries, many from computer science, and many international.
The three keynote speakers were my favorite part of the proceedings. Jason Scott, the first, is a historian of the internet and an advocate for large-scale web preservation on behalf of web users. He coordinates the Archive Team and runs textfiles.com, which I’d just stumbled across a few months ago.

But we want social and global ties to advance universal equity, solidarity, diversity, and self-management, not to subjugate ever-wider populations to an elite minority. We want to globalize equity not poverty, solidarity not anti-sociality, divers...s and their dynamics. We need domestic and international economic vision that everyone can understand and refine and make their own. We need it to generate hope, to provide inspiration, to reveal what is possible and valuable, and to orient and also democratize our strategies so that they might take us where we desire rather than in circles or even toward something worse than what we now endure.
But a participatory economy enjoys advantages in managing this trade off compared to capitalism.
