Public educators on my podcasts: "2-3 hours of schooling per day is not the path to academic success, we need a better plan."
Me, homeschooled and holding a postgraduate degree:

@GreenandBlack Fun fact: "Alpha male" concept was popularized by human males who wanted to justify the existing patriarchy by biology; the original research that hypothesized there is a hierarchy in wolves was flawed; and the current scientific consensus is that wolves in nature are not hierarchical but mostly egalitarian, with no "alpha males" at all.

Let me put it this way: if you are not a startup (i.e., you don't have venture capital and you’re not looking to scale exponentially and have a billion-dollar exit) and yet you call yourself a startup, you are actively helping the startup that will offer your services for free until it kills your sustainable small tech business.

So maybe don’t call yourself a startup.

Startup is a Silicon Valley brand. It does not mean a new, small tech business.

If you've heard of Dataminr, it's probably because of the 2016 shitstorm in which it was revealed that the social media "analysis" company was spying on Twitter users for US intelligence agencies.

Worse: Dataminr's investors included the CIA..and Twitter itself.

Twitter has since divested itself of its stake in Dataminr, but the company remains a "trusted partner" with access to Twitter's firehose - the raw feed of all public tweets.

Just tried #PureOS. It's Debian but neutered. Installation went perfectly, but now I can't install any additional software! I was almost ready to accept that #Trisquel might have competition until I actually got to the part where I actually tried to use the OS.

Pretty shameful IMO.
