I just recently realised, that proprietary social networks are not social networks but entertainment networks. That's why at least my friends have a hard time switching to mastodon or pixelfed. People expect to be highly entertained the first second they enter the network and kept that way all the time. Being confronted with a network that is stripped from all these addictive tools is a massive cultural clash.

also, there is something to the thing where you ought not have unfinished business with the dead. once they’re gone, you will never settle anything with them. any disagreement you have with them will be forever.

Listening to Emily Wells, hooked. Why didn't I came to know about her earlier, rather why didn't I looked for more when I had discovered Becomes the color?

I don't think we need more teachers; we just need to redistribute the classroom.

We should have a 5:1 ratio of teacher to student from 1st grade to 5th grade, then a 30:1 ration from 6th to 8th, and a 60:1 ratio from 9th -10th and finally a 100:1 ratio for 11th - 12th.

That way we can impact education more significantly when understand abstractions if of paramount importance and needs to be micromanaged, and while course correction is still beneficial, instead of trying to maintain some kind of consistent ratio across the board.

Just a thought.

microblogging sites should have a pane where you can post anonymously or with pseudonym.

What's the point of freedom if you can't waste it...

i have been bound by the work - reward, instant gratification system. i only study when exams are there, would keep postponing studying on regular days and postpone other (bit imp) things in exam time even though i will be spending essential time surfing...

he could actually be a good candidate if both NDA and UPA couldnt get to tge mark. he can get support from non-UPA entities like KCR, YSR, JDS, CPI/M. he has good rapport with congress leadership. Not sure abt BSP but SP, RLD could get onboard.

unlikely but if by some chance M K Stalin gets to be the PM, what a day that will be. hindutva gang, hindi, north supremacy gang will be in tatters. social justice movement will get a big boost, RSS will wet their pants.
and west will have to deal with stalin for their cold war against China 😆

being content with being mediocre...🤢
to put it in 'veep' terms mediest of all the ocre's

koshyari's statement on nehru is just a beneficiary's praise and appreciation. congressies are unnecessarily being bitter about it.
Nehru's pacifist attitude(unlike patel) towards black topis indeed made india weak.

I pray for the day when #Mastodon #developers introduce the solar light and dark theme, cause the light theme is too bright.


what a sweet thing democracy is, people who used to actively deny knowledge to Bahujans are now starting free Geeta, Yoga initiatives to make political inroads.

But anger is our state of mind
For we live in a police society
Harmful, to our emotional health
They condemn our crimes
They commit others far worse
And who gets away with it?
Who has the dough

i don't get why in indian social media ecosystem watergate is getting remembered and not prism when its way more relevant.
