The only constructive criticism of the Left can come from further-Left and invariably not from the Right.

Reading Permanent record, autobiography of Edward Snowden.There is an intresting bit when he talks about Intelligence agencies & tech industries.The very belief that they are entitled to their unilateral decision making based on data,makes them apolitical as data itself is just information.The idea of harmless surveilance or surveilance for greater good?
Makes me feel vulnerable when one pours out into the digital world,someone is just calling it data & putting a label on you & uses it in a way profitable to them.Imagine tweeting feeling sad tonight after a break up & netflix suggests me Always be my may be😐 and Google suggests best shops that sell cookie dough near by.They know me too well.🙊
Its like they put a label on my feeling & advertise it."swapy is sad & would probably eat cookie dough today & watch netflix😣."
The otherside to this is the assumption that since I posted it, I gave them permission to use this data.But do most people even read the license agreement or data usage policies?People just click accept.I didnt agree to sell my sadness 😑.These tech companies are merging all the time.Google has taken over so many that google knows more about me than I do.Its like If I die, the google me would go on living, inactive till they archive me.creepy digital existance?

This book is a gem.Especially for people from a country like India where the Data protection laws are virtually non existant.

Guys I need more people to boost this.

Justice Akil Kureshi yesterday got his appointment confirmation as CJ of The Hon’ble Tripura HC. Whilst I’m happy to hear ths, he was slated to be the CJ of The Hon’ble MP HC - a bigger state. We all know why this happened - Because tis man bravely stood upto and passed an order against Chanakya Shah. Please boost this msg far and wide - it’s further proof that independence of the judiciary is finished :(

Best of luck everyone, and strength for the times ahead.

Right time everyone started tooting,
after tomorrow’s verdict can’t predict how many accounts will be silenced by twitter

PS: I’m loving it here .. a sense of freedom

It's a horrible travesty of justice that the courts are discussing a land dispute case instead of trying to ensure that the terrorists are punished. The successful deviation from the real majoritarian violence to the imaginary communal conflict is the biggest fiasco in all of this, and it's not just the right wing that's to be blamed.

I hope everyone boost all the voices of resistance , want to follow all of them.

If someone set up a new instance and if I wanted to migrate to that instance ,

1. Would it be like creating a new account in that instance ?

If not

2. Is there a way for carrying all the follow I did to that instance (all those who I follow will be in old instance)
3. Can my followers continue to follow me in the new instance also or should they have to find new instance id and follow me ?

Ah, everyone is introducing themselves, quite useful. Here is mine.

I'm an AI scientist turned AI policy researcher. I'm faculty at IITB.

My lens on AI policy is informed by how it affects labour etc. In general I care a lot about workers and students. My technological impulse thus is deeply political.

Hang around me if you want to get bored on AI, labour, Marxism, decentralisation, and connected topics!

Or just discus books, history, and food.
