Fantasy about tech companies 

~ In the alternate universe where somehow I actually get to write a law ~

The new law: "Sidewalk Labs is illegal because fuck off, Google"

The queen: Good law, 10/10. *Signs bill into law*

Me: *High-fives the queen*

Fellow scholars, I'm looking for a way/journal/portal to publish methodological details and results from a structured literature search (not a fully qualified literature review) - open access :oa: is a must, open peer review would be nice. Topic is biomedical / medical /health informatics with a focus on laboratory systems. Any ideas or recommendations?

New co-worker seems very nice. Also sent me a journal article today too, so that gets the nerd vote! So that's a yay!

Mental health, academia, journal article 

I was all over this yesterday. I think I will try to do something similar with regard to Japan, particularly non-Japanese teaching staff (due to an off-the-cuff remark about sojourning EFL teachers in uni work here and ADHD).

Obviously the editor didn't get the review to me.

I get reviews back from an editor today, or probably nighttime my time. The one that had my paper for 2 years. Hoping for minor revisions or even none (dream on, head).

Got a rejection from a 'good' journal on a paper based on my MA. Read a paper from a different 'good' journal with similar study but with flaws far worse than mine. I'm just going to roar around the kitchen for a while.

A really interesting post on how we communicate with others online for professional purposes, by @lauraritchie How do you do that online thing? Make sure to watch the video. It's very interesting, IMO.

I'm proposing that we make "in capitalist america..." the new meme for today.

Example: "In capitalist America, bank robs you!"

Trimmed a cheeky 200 words off my lit review for first submission to my uni, with advice "add the cuts later, even though it's infuriating".

Wow. I think I might have finally figured out APA 6th to a novice level, despite having already finishing a Master's degree.

The paper reformat is done, and thank god they asked for it because I saw a kerjillion typos (inc. refs - yikes!).

A new post on my blog: Beyond Utility in Task-Based Language Teaching, now we got a few more language teachers in here.

That #blog challenge I mentioned a few days back... #OpenBlog19
I did a post - chose the topic: What does innovation in teaching look like? wp.me/p4Ng5z-1gO

For me it has to do with a playground and a beach. :) #learning #teaching

Blogging / professional / network question:

How do you leverage your writing and your professional profile with your networks online?

I'm talking to students about this and would LOVE input.

Submitted chapter to editor. Next, revise a paper so that it really does abide by APA style. Pffffft!!

It's the 'comb through sage and other databases for lit review' time

the worst part of paper writing
