The news cycle is a confusing space sometimes;

- #ElectricCars are the future for the planet
- Mining #Lithium batteries is destroying parts of Bolivia/Chile/Argentina

- Decentralised #Cryptocurrencies are the future
- Mining #Bitcoin = huge energy consumption
The narrative around everything nowadays is all about #Values

Corporates latch onto every opportunity

Individuals the same (just read some of the stuff on LinkedIn) 🧐

Life & business is essentially a game
#Winning is always key! (Be nice tho)

The rest is Perception=Reality
I'm a #football fan & I see a footy angle in almost everything I read! 🧐

Not sure if these connections stand up, but here's what I saw;

- #Bolivia former President #EvoMorales was ousted in 2019. Evo a #SimonBolivar anti-imperialist styled leader

Dear friends, good afternoon and welcome to today's edition of #navigatewithidy on @LagosTalks913 & brought to you by MTN. Today on the program, joining @IdyEnang is a special Guest in the person of Mr. Temilolu Salako, Customer Operations Manager (Lagos & South-West), MTN.
Today's conversation is going to be centered around IDENTITY.

Identity is the qualities, beliefs, personality, looks and/or expressions that make a person or group.

#navigatewithidy #Identity @IdyEnang @LagosTalks913
It is important that as an individual you focus on building the character and personality of who you are.

Members of the transgender community in the Srikakulam district have been issued government identity cards.
Collector J Nivas distributed the cards, prepared as per the instructions of the Union Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, at a function held at his office on March 24.
The collector also said that housing sites would be allotted to the transgender people, and the ID cards were being issued to them to help them get the benefits of various government schemes.

I'm excited to hear what Dom has to say today! In 5 minutes I will start "live tweeting" for your amusement.
And we're live! "The most awkward parts of a presentation are the beginning and the end." Even more awkward when you can't get the audience feedback. We're here for you Dom!
Big AMA today, and it might go long because there are many questions. Also have an exciting announcement: the Chrysalis network migration is set for April 21, and the network will go live April 28.

Big congrats to @nonfungibles on releasing their 2020 Annual Non-Fungible Tokens Report! @NathalieBcht, @latelier & I thoroughly enjoyed partnering with them on it:
Some key takeaways from the report & my personal observations a/t #NFTs. A long-ish 🧵👇:
MARKET SIZE: The NFT market had a historic 2020 - tripled in value, reaching $250m (in terms of value of all #Ethereum transactions on chain, so actual market size is even bigger). This is rapid growth for a space that’s just a few years old.
Market is still volatile & prone to speculation but more sophisticated use cases are emerging based on utility, community, competitive elements. All are prerequisites for a more mature market. For all the hype around crypto, it is #NFTs that offer some of the more promising uses.

Thanks to @kimbiddulph it’s #Archaeology31 time again! - Starting with prompt number one: #new.

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image
#Archaeology31 day 2, #future, offers a great chance to highlight a topic I found particularly interesting as of late:

How will an #ArchaeologyOfTheFuture look like - What do *we* leave behind for future colleagues?

(Weekend reading recommendations included. 😉) Image
Starting with the question what actually constitutes #CulturalHeritage, #sites, and #monuments of our age ...

Even though I haven't been a big fan of Twitter threads so far, a lot of people I know have made 100-tweet threads for @threadapalooza so I thought I'll give it a try as well. I will start with #APIs and hopefully end up connecting them with the #FutureOfWork. Let's go ...

First of all, when I talk about #APIs, I mean HTTP-based interfaces connecting apps and backend servers as well as different services with each other. For now, the technical details, such as whether they use REST, GraphQL, gRPC etc., shall not matter. (1/100)
When humans interact with computers they require a user interface (UI), and when machines interact with each other they need application programming interfaces (APIs). At the end of the day, however, these have to be implemented by humans. Good #APIDesign considers both. (2/100)

For EU scholars advocating for stronger #EU-#Taiwan ties, it’s key to grasp what our European trade offices (15: 🇦🇹 🇧🇪🇨🇿🇩🇰🇫🇮🇫🇷🇩🇪🇭🇺🇮🇹🇱🇺🇳🇱🇵🇱🇸🇰🇪🇸🇸🇪) do on the ground, and how much the EU 🇪🇺 & its member states can & want to do with/in TW. Long🧵 follows:
Met with Frederic Verheyden, #Belgium’s representative this morning. A compelling talk, in many regards, not least bc of our Bruxellois connection & good company @maxime_ramon Sharing a few reflections, starting w/trade & investment, essence of all EU offices’ presence in TW 1/9 ImageImageImage
#EU is the nr 1 investor in #Taiwan, but few people in TW actually know. Challenges will remain for the EU to leverage its raw economic power in a political context, as well as to leverage a joint image, given its fragmentation 2/9

So pleased to be able to bring my workshop - Working withIN diversity - to another cohort of counsellors. Exploring identity, intersectionality, power, privilege & oppression. #workingwithindiversity #intersectionality #counselling Image
Exploring positions of oppression and power. Something which exists in the counselling/therapeutic professions & practice. Can be experienced as microaggressions, criticising or dismissing an 'other's' experiences, work, success, projects or progress. Professional envy is real! Image
Our afternoon discussion - what impact do you think #intersectionality might have on the counselling process, therapeutic relationship and presenting problem? #counselling #identity Image

On Monday 14th Sept we will be launching #theartistandtheprof, an artistic collaboration between myself and @LauraNyahuye @maokwo exploring themes of #migration #identity #belonging and what it means to be boxed in and categorised as #migrants #women #mothers #wives...(1/?) Image
Funded by @covcampus @warwickuni as part of @Coventry2021 this collaboration has been undertaken entirely online during the #COVID19 #lockdown It's been a powerful and challenging experience for many different reasons. We've laughed and cried, written and woven... (2/?) Image
For both of us this is the first time that we've had an opportunity to #stop #breathe #pause and reflect on the ways in which our own and societal expectations of gendered and racialized roles and responsibilities have shaped our lives #morethanalabel #beyondcategories (3/?) Image

My Identity, My cleansing
Mark 5:25-34, Leviticus 15:25-30

Here comes the stride
I've taken all the ride
Only for all the appointments
Countless were the disappointments
I've got a file with very clinic
Yet a defilement to everyone near
Sterilization made all tools clean
Only a touch from me makes it unclean
Twelve years has been my journey
Twelve years waiting to alight from this journey
Hoping the warmth sun light will welcome me
But yet the discharge keeps me hidden from light

Hmm. Maybe @DCMS could explain the "regulatory barriers" to "secure digital identities" 👇 and - if indeed they exist - why they weren't addressed for, say, @GOVUKverify? They've had a decade to do this, after all...… Image
...and I think @DCMS will find that people have been doing online #shopping and #banking quite happily for many years before #COVID19, without the need for #GovernmentID!

In what way has this "become essential" now? Image
#DigitalSignatures for contracts are indeed a use case. But again, I've been using them (e.g. with my accountant) for years. And getting the Government involved in what it acknowledges is already a stressful process seems... counterintuitive. Some might even say risky! Image

You see my faith before my profession. You see my ethnicity before my qualifications. You see my gender before my clincial experience. You see my age before my accolades. To say therapy isn't social justice or political guess what, its not a choice. You can't eradicate my Truth.
If I am Seen, my Clients are Seen. If I can accept my Truth, I can accept my Client's Truth.
#socialjustice #counselling #therapy #power #privilege #oppression #political #inequality #intersectionality #identity #faith #ethnicity #gender Image
No Counsellor/Therapist is 'neutral' in the room. Our visible identity (ethnicity, gender, faith, age, ability/disability etc) can't be removed, dismissed, ignored, made invisible. Our identity is reacted/related/responded to (consciously/unconsciously). It's how we work with it.

Thread warning: A long thread coming on the life and work of Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o, a world-renowned Kenyan writer, scholar, and social activist. His seminal work, "Decolonising the Mind" is a brilliant exposition of how integral language is to culture and identity.

Language is a central question in all of Ngũgĩ wa Thiong'o's work. In his work, he proposes a "theory of language", in which "language exists as culture" & "language exists as communication". For him, a language carries the histories, values, and aesthetics of culture within it.
Born in Kamiriithu, near Limuru in Kiambu district, Kenya in 1938, he was soon baptized and given a name (James Ngugi). His first encounter with colonial institutions happened when he was sent to study in The Alliance High School (seen as a civilizing instrument for Africans).

Like all complex organisms, a #LargeSystem must stay focused on its #purpose, honor its #OrganizingPrinciples, and question and modify its #rules and #boundaries if it is to successfully #adapt to perturbations in its internal / external #environment or risk losing its #identity.
If a #LargeSystem fails to #adapt, more #agents in the system experience unmet needs / wants. Eventually, affected agents will challenge those with rule and boundary setting authority to align the system to its purpose and principles and modify the system’s rules and boundaries.
Change occurs in a #LargeSystem when #agents modify its #rules and #boundaries to maintain #integrity with its original #purpose and #OrganizingPrinciples. If agents adopt another purpose and / or organizing principles, the original system loses its integrity and ceases to exist.
