An Archive of Resources & References for How to Build an Archive ProjectIn our 8th class at the Useful School, Ramon Tejada gave a lecture on “Punct—uring” and/or digging through my archive and he shared a metaphor that really resonated with me. He said that sometimes people see you hugging [knowledge] and they just want to be part of that hug; I want this page to be a digital hug of sharing the knowledge, information, and seeds I’ve gathered that makes this project possible. 

Below you’ll find a collection of things that have been part of my network, sphere, and have informed the ecology of information.
