Yesterday, I gave the keynote at the #agm2021. The session was recorded but not yet freely available. I’m hoping to rework the text for publication, but on request, I’m willing to share the text of my talk, so contact me accordingly.

title slide for presentation: Archives at Point Zero: Towards an Actually-Existing Archival Commons

The title was ‘Archives at Point Zero: Towards an Actually-Existing Archival Commons.’

slide titled 'background': depicts a mindmap of related topics

Here’s a mindmap of related topics from when I was first asked to give a talk for the canceled 2020 Western Archivists Meeting.

slide titled: 'Utopia, Innovation, and Imaginaries of Forgetting; depicts an imaginary flying vehicle with a seat and steering wheel with a large frame on top of a blue gradient background

I used lots of images from Calisphere, like this one.

slide with Ursula K. Le Guin quote, reading: Persevering in one’s existence is the particular quality of the organism; it is not a progress towards achievement, followed by stasis, which is the machine’s mode, but an interactive, rhythmic, and unstable process, which constitutes an end in itself

I also used a lot of Ursula K. Le Guin quotes.
