    1. Actively seek out the work of Indigenous creators for inclusion in their collectionsand in addition, institute a robust deselection system that recognizes cultural appropriation and historical inaccuracy.

      This is a trickier one in an academic library. Perhaps a future project could be to do an exploratory essay on historical collections and the challenges they pose?

    2. 3.Seek direction from communities on proper cultural protocols regarding access and care of their culturally sensitive knowledge and materials; developing specific protocols for dealing with Indigenous knowledge/materials within their collections by developing a Collection Management Policy that reflects and integrates Indigenous values; and if warranted an Indigenous knowledge agreement should be discussed with the originating community and agreed to.4.Respect the Indigenous cultural concept of copyright regardingIndigenous history or heritage, which isoften located in but not limited to oral traditions, songs, dance, storytelling, anec

      These need to factor into present and future negotiations when purchasing content about Indigenous peoples.

    3. process of annotation respects and renders visible the experiences of those people whose lives have been documented by state organizations and thus can build trust with Indigenous peoples.

      Existing collections such as North American Indian Thought and Culture could greatly benefit from this sort of retroactive description. For collections that are already owned, coordinated efforts by those with purchasing/institutional power would be needed. Also conversations "on the trade show floor" with companies such as Gale and Adam Matthews would be beneficial.

      Example: the work of Edward S. Curtis / and the digital repatriation model (referenced on p. 33)

    4. ideologically-biased terminology

      See Frontier Life as an example.

    5. Provide language collections

      Purchase/stream language instruction tools.

      List of objects: connection to The Pale King and Zero Kerning by Craig Dworkin

      Similar goal? Collecting to detach from original function?

    1. desk, a chair, a pencil, some memos, some forms, an unending stream of tax returns in need of examination, and a clock.

      Link to Zero Kerning by Craig Dworkin - collecting objects removes them from their function.

    1. e great tax farmers established hereditary rights over dozens of villages, in which they acted as virtual landlords and patrons. In addition to collecting taxes from the peasants they took care of various administrative tasks, mediated local disputes, and lent money on a large scale. Large stocks of food came into their possession as tax payments, giving them a highly profitable control over the grain supply to the city.
    2. The most lucrative and influential government positions involved tax collection.

    1. p. 6 On knowledge fetishisation. Note he is writing in the period 1995-2000, before it became absolutely clear that this was vanishing and that it would become a fetish:

      One purpose [for acquiring information[ is simply possession and the satisfaction it gives; witness the pride some people take in their phenomenal memory for trivia, their extensive libraries, their collections of compact disks, maps, or computer programs. Possessing information also confers prestige. Erudition and especially initiation into the esoteric knowledge of a small sect or secret society--Freemasons, cosmologists, and the like--have conferred prestige and awed the ignorant throughout history.

    1. Stdlib support for a global Trace trait that everyone derives would be awesome.

      The issue of wanting to augment structs from external crates with additional traits seems like a pretty generic problem. Seems a shame to solve it only for GC tracing.

    1. A lot of people seem to think that heap allocation is expensive and stack allocation is cheap. They are actually about the same, typically. It’s the deallocation costs – the marking and sweeping and compacting and moving memory from generation to generation – that are massive for heap memory compared to stack memory.
    2. This sketch is complicated by the fact that there are actually three such arenas; the CLR collector is generational. Objects start off in the “short lived” heap. If they survive they eventually move to the “medium lived” heap, and if they survive there long enough, they move to the “long lived” heap. The GC runs very often on the short lived heap and very seldom on the long lived heap; the idea is that we do not want to have the expense of constantly re-checking a long-lived object to see if it is still alive. But we also want short-lived objects to be reclaimed swiftly.
    3. When a garbage collection is performed there are three phases: mark, sweep and compact. In the “mark” phase, we assume that everything in the heap is “dead”. The CLR knows what objects were “guaranteed alive” when the collection started, so those guys are marked as alive. Everything they refer to is marked as alive, and so on, until the transitive closure of live objects are all marked. In the “sweep” phase, all the dead objects are turned into holes. In the “compact” phase, the block is reorganized so that it is one contiguous block of live memory, free of holes.
