Perfect quotes from my older brother:

"If you can get the wheels going on a Tesla, you can use the spinning of the wheels to generate electricity forever"

"You can't stay open source forever" -while talking about Mozilla

"Windows is free"

"Learning multiple languages makes no sense. Just master C#, it's all you'll ever need!"

He's the comic relief of my life. 👍

New code of conduct is just a tip of the iceberg of () crap which I am also strongly against it.

has blocked posts in relating to corruption claims made by the country's most prominent opposition leader.
This is one of the apparent example that companies like don't give a damn about freedom of speech and free access to the information. What they care is their userbase and business profit. That's why people should avoid using (be used as says) such services. Aside from issues.

Can someone explain to me the relation between and 's gift for .
The recommender system of the e-commerce site is pretty screwed. They added as treasure gift for men. Odds.

and are another type of crappy social networks that are designed so-called for researchers. But they are constantly spamming emails.

It’s not AI vs people
It’s not Big Data vs people
It’s not robots vs people

It’s corporations vs people.

Many people ask me this question frequently: "Why are you so against giant tech companies (like , , , , etc.)?"
My answer: "Well, I am not against any company in particular. I am against power accumulation in one place with no transparency because it creates corruption."
To make it clear. If tomorrow Google decides to be transparent about their processes, I will encourage people to use their services. But until then, I do opposite.

Some people around me think I am leftist, others think opposite.
I nether because I am against 's policies, nor just because I detest third wave and using -upPronouns.
I don't identify/limit myself by any . I am who I am and not necessarily any group represent me.

Thanks to , brainless character assassination becomes such a norm and took over criticisms.
video on that became controversial is a great example. When a person like with ~66K followers & Twitter funny badge decided to go ballistic without even watching the video once (pic). Later she deleted her Tweet without even apologizing.

Nowadays song by Rammstein makes more sense to me than 2004.
It does not merely have to be interpreted as the worldwide cultural influence of the U.S, which is the obvious message.
It can be extended to anything. For instance in the software world we can refer to as the influence of the giant tech companies (Google, FB, MS, Amazon, ...) on crowd. Years ago nobody would have revealed their personal info on the net. But today, people are doing so voluntarily, thanks to those companies.

We're overjoyed to announce that the FSF has received an extraordinary gift of 91.45 Bitcoin from the #PineappleFund, valued at $1 million! Huge thanks to the Pineapple Fund for this tremendous contribution to software freedom.
