One of the problems with Twitter is that it became a lot bigger and important than just a fun social network. Like someone built a fun clicker to play with and others made it a switch that can trigger wars.

After I wrote about my changing music habits, I’ve tweaked my habits slightly. Earlier I asked my digital assistant to “play some music”. I now say “play my favorite music” or ask it play a specific playlist. This has helped.

Often my daughter asks me the meaning of a word unknown to her. Which is fine, but she doesn’t stop at that. She wants me to enact the meaning too. Like today she wanted me to enact what a character “squealing” would sound like. Unfortunately, I’m neither that good at English nor at acting. Sigh!

I figure, at the midway stage, India still isn’t in any position to be a contender to win the T20 World Cup. Or even to reach the finals, for that matter. They weren’t the favourites going in. They haven’t improved their chances much 🏏

The Curious Bee and her friends celebrated Halloween yesterday β€” she dressed up as a witch. She wanted herself to look scary, but I don’t think she can be. To my eyes, she looked so cute! Anyway, happy Halloween folks! πŸ§™πŸŽƒ

I just got an external display in my workspace at home. I should have done this earlier, but I was afraid the large display will crowd the desk. On the contrary, I love this setup! It has instead freed up with so much space. Curious how something larger can occupy lesser.

β€œEven if you ideologically agree with him, unless you love being a replaceable cog who has to dance on command, this is not a workplace to be in."

A comment that says so much about the anxiety among Twitter employees.

I disabled all cross-posting today. I will manually syndicate the posts I want. Basically, I consider all platforms independent and will use them in their native forms.

  • I think it’s time to make all content 20% human-produced.
  • To a coder, if his code doesn’t work, it means he’s wrong.

Here’s what AI thinks I can write based on what I have written on Twitter. Interesting!

My daughter just shushed me because I talked to her while she was engrossed in her adventure novel. Now even I want to read the book.
