I have recently learned about Scholarly Hub, a membership-driven hub for sharing research and teaching, connecting with others, housing pre-prints, and more. Seems like something like Academia.edu but not for profit and that doesn't sell your data. Check it out: scholarlyhub.org/

Maybe kind of like a co-op for scholars?

dammit, don't correct me, Mastodon, that was @ robertwgehl @ scholar.social with no spaces! 😀

Probably a longshot: does anyone out there know a place to find BBS archives, specifically between 1980 and 1984? I've scoured textfiles.com, and it's good, but perhaps there's more?

Hey, Linux users and researchers: any recommendations on a program? I used Calizo in the past (calizo.sourceforge.net/) but it's been abandoned and no longer works on modern systems.

I would like to avoid web-based systems and instead have the data on my machine.

This GDPR thing is awesome... all the spammers are emailing begging me to opt into being spammed... lovely
