Putting my librarian chops to work
But I’d also like your help. Yes, YOU! 

I’m putting together a list of resources for civil rights charities/organizations both for the people directly experiencing oppression and looking for some support and for the people who want to help but don’t know how. 

Where do you come in? Well, I have other stuff to do, like slaving for my cat overlords and finding a job that will pay me money so I don’t starve. So while I’m definitely gonna be doing lots of research, I’m not going to find all the resources I could with a little help from my friends. And enemies. And strangers. So! 

If you, YES YOU! know of an organization (local or national) then message me, @ or DM me on twitter, email me. As long as it is something I can have a permanent record of, I want to see it. Tell me the name, url, if it’s local or national, and where the HQ is. 

If you don’t know of any, then signal boost! reblog! share! Someone you know might be able to help!

The Washington Post has a slew of openings for smart, talented tech types. And I’m posting every single one of them here because, if you’re a smart, talented tech type, I really, really, hope you apply.

Changing jobs is bad for my mental health! I've had to fight off overwhelming APPLY TO NPR desire already! Ducking and covering!

Don't worry, y'all, despite all that marble in DC's best attempt, I remain uncrushed.

If my browser is open for more than 12 hours (like if I leave the computer on overnight) then feedly stops loading and asks if it's been blocked. Since I'm usually leaving the browser open because there are other tabs I need open it is a HUGE pain to reboot the entire browser just so I can get my RSS feed.

From the Sorry About Your Drought but This Is Really Interesting department:
As lack of rain caused the waters of Turkey's Lake Kucukcekmece to slowly pull away from its shore, the ancient harbor town of Bathonea revealed itself. The ruins of buildings, roads, and a sea wall are thought to date back as far as the 2nd century BC, meaning it would have been a thriving community at a time when Byzantium--now Istanbul--was a sprawling metropolis.
Droughts are typically bad news, as they can put a strain on a country's people, economy, and infrastructure. But archaeologists are now calling a…

Spotted on Tumblr. I love this so much, it's going on the Wall of Inspiration by my desk, next to my Cult of Done Manifesto and Ira Glass' Crossing The Gap thing.
