This leads her to argue that DHers must consider how to extend these privileges to what she calls “DIY scholars”, citing an archive (Gibagadinamaa- goom) and an intervention into TEI coding practices  (Amanda Gailey) as examples. Can you think of other scholarly and/or activist work doing this? And what other factors might be important when attempting to decouple sustainability from institutional affiliation and centralized standards?
