    In this paper I tell stories of collaborative design work, developing research micro-credentials suitable for Indigenous community-based researchers working in their home communities in North East Arnhem Land, Australia. These credentials are coming to life within growing microentrepreneurial economies that are beginning to take root within Aboriginal communities in northern Australia. While there is significant critique of these forms of economy and the socio-technical infrastructures through which they extend, here I set my inquiry down amidst the mundane practices of community research services design, and particular moments or ‘turning points’ in the emerging life of these technologies. I inquire into the arrangements and practices of these initial design activities, proposing such work as ‘making and doing STS’ and
    reflecting on this form of STS empirics.
