Dear Internet,

Today is Christmas Eve. Ho. Ho. Ho.

This morning our sewer mains are going to be rooted as they have been backed up since the weekend due to combination of weather and 90 year old pipes. When we had to do this several years ago, it was due to the previous owner had flushed every period pad and tampon she ever used down the toilets, and after years of this behaviour, the cotton from the aforementioned turned into bricks which clogged the drains. Good times! While the plumber is doing his work, we’re going on our clean / bake / food prep extravaganza for dinner on Wednesday and upcoming mother-in-law visit. Hopefully at some point put up our damn tree. I still have yet to do cards this year, which I should be cracking on this weekend.

There has been so much going on in the #libtechgender world and will continue to grow, I thought it would be a grand idea to start annotating the articles in a roundup post to publish once a month. This also gives me incentive to keep the #libtechgender page up to date , so it’s a win-win situation. The articles below are ordered as I find them, while on the landing page they are in chronological order, newest at the top, since many of them are responses to the other pieces. As always, if you find mistakes / recommendations, leave them in the comments or drop me a line.

P.S. If you’re heading to Midwinter, Andromeda Yelton will be paneling with lots of awesome people on Challenges of gender issues in technology librarianship. Hie thee on January 25 to the Pennsylvania Convention Center 201 C at 4:30PM!
