Brilliant project that tidies up public domain ebooks.
Gutenberg and Internet Archive are wonderful resources, but the texts are poorly formatted for actual use, especially on ereaders.
This is a volunteer driven initiative to bring these texts up to date with modern standards and make them look as good as possible on the page.

My center has just opened a position for a 4-year PhD on formal epistemology and the limits of knowledge (esp. around the problems of the notion of knowability).
It partially overlaps with my research, so I'm looking forward to having more people working on this around. Please share for visibility!
We're going to be Virtually Connecting from #etug this week. Sign up and join us in the Virtual Connecting sessions on Thursday http://virtuallyconnecting.org/blog/2019/06/12/virtually-connecting-at-etug/
Grateful to those at the conference I'm attending who use the microphone instead of asking those of us with hearing difficulties to raise our hands if we can't hear. (& then half the time people speak up for a short period & then speak quietly again).
A gentle reminder that it's really not about whether one likes using the mic, or thinks one is loud enough w/o it, but rather about how one sounds to others, & there are lots of folks w/different levels of hearing out here!
For the afternoon / evening / tomorrow morning crowd:
