Does anybody know of a good way to turn an android tablet into a graphics tablet of sorts? The idea is to use my tablet to draw on the whiteboard on my linux PC. Something like http://sunnysidesoft.com/virtualtablet/ but for linux
OMFG A FEDERATED SCHOLARLY COMMUNICATIONS PLATFORM!
I literally cannot wait to dig into this!! It's what I've been wanting!
This page for a philosophy paper has a DOI link:
When I click that DOI link I get sent to a site about steroids for bodybuilding. I'm very puzzled.
The DOI link is:
A paper that was online for a while is now in its (special) issue. I'm particularly pleased to be in the same issue as John Perry.
I have never taken a formal course in generative syntax; I audited a course for graduate students during my PhD but it was very introductory and I have forgotten most of it.
I have some familiarity with what philosophers say about, e.g., Chomsky's programme as a big picture approach to the nature of language, and I have read some of his work.
What's a good resource for me to pick up the basics that I am missing?
Any recommendations for #FOSS alternatives to prezi.com? To create nice slides and presentations?

top suggestions for a "How to Online Student 101" guide?
I'm making a "How to Online Student 101" guide for my community college's students—both because it can be helpful and because I think we in the library will do a more empathetic version than our non-library colleagues who initially said it should happen.
We've got a very distinct digital divide here in Idaho, serving some very rural areas as well as the state's biggest cities.
Anyone have favorite #OER guides or top other suggestions?
I haven't listened to this yet, but the topic is interesting and I know that David Adger does good work.
I finally put a recent photo on my site.
Especially useful if you're being turned to remote meetings/lessons b/c of COVID19, but useful other times, too:
I wrote up a "video call hosting guidelines" doc for my workplace. We use Zoom for calls, and provide tips for how to handle calls from start to finish. It's Creative Commons licenced, so if you'd like to re-use it for your remote lessons/calls/seminar/webinars/lectures, feel free! https://github.com/intermine/community-call-archives/blob/master/community-call-guide.md
Now that we all are going remote, I've started to compile a guide to FOSS tools that could be useful for distance learning (from the "teacher" pow) http://jgbarah.github.io/Notes/foss-distance-learning.html Feedback & contributions welcome! #freesoftware
How to organise notes - tips?
I'm looking for a way to organise ideas and notes with an aim to eventually produce something. Discipline issues aside, has anyone ever tried this Zettelkasten method for organising notes and ideas? I'd be glad to hear other suggestions, just asked about this one because it was mentioned in an article I read recently.
I am a philosopher who works on philosophy of language, metaphysics, and philosophy of mind.
