A quick update on the archive
I have not forgotten about it
I need to hire someone to run it. It is definitively a full-time job.
I think the top job has to be on the journalism/information/curation side, not the tech side. But that will likely be a full-time job too (overseeing and hiring teams for the design/interface and back-end).
I will be raising money and setting direction, at least at first, but I want it to become independent very quickly. And it has to be apolitical - the information has to be available whether it supports or opposes lockdowns, mandates, and everything else.
I tried today to hire someone as the archivist, but I think it’s a long shot.
But this needs to happen.
