I don’t think Twitter users will mass exit the platform. Do people on Twitter care who heads the company? The exits that happen today won’t be of the users. And that has already begun.

Loved this line from The Obstacle is the Way by Holiday Ryan ๐Ÿ“š

Stop looking for angels and start looking for angles.

This in context of persisting with your efforts when faced with failures.

My aversion for the concept of timezone is not hidden - I probably have an yearly post begrudgingly accepting the fallout of this weird phenomenon.

What makes it worse though is how each region is allowed to select their own timezones. This makes the situation messier than anything to do with time should be. Just search YouTube for weird timezones. There are ample examples of how we have screwed this up.

I read about another such weird little timezone from Australia - given the size and nature of the region involved, this has to be amongst the craziest.

I loved the recent article from Dan Lewis about the history of the word “curfew” and how it took the meaning that it has today. It’s fascinating how words change meaning over time as the world changes. This story is no different.

With a lack of any options for a minimalist phone in India, I am glad that Android allows custom launchers. I have stripped most distractions off my phone with one such option. I’ve managed to kill the subconscious “swipe-tap-launch” cycle for sure.

iPadOS, specifically its multi-tasking, must be Apple’s Achilles' heel in making the iPad the default family computer. They attempt to improve its windowing capabilities significantly every iteration, only to further muddle it. What’s a Computer? It for sure is not an iPad yet.

It is for conversations like this that I love browsing through the Micro.blog timeline. The only place online where I feel am amongst my friends. Thank you, you lovely folks! ๐Ÿ˜‡

Numerous world changing ideas are drained down during the shower, killed by the lack of any tool to capture them with.

Don’t know why, but I am psyched about this year’s T20 #Cricket WorldCup. I don’t fancy the Indian team’s chances - their form has been patchy. Yet I feel this WorldCup will be exciting.
