Increasing domestic and international demand for #electricity will lead to more #RenewableEnergy capacity installation; new connections and usage will ⬆️domestic demand, integration & #export (neighbors inc #Myanmar #SriLanka) will ⬆️cross-border demand, which India can supply.

1. [thread] We are filing legal complaints against six companies based on our research, revealing systematic breaches to privacy, by shadowy #OutOfControl #adtech companies gathering & sharing heaps of personal data. forbrukerradet.no/out-of-control… #privacy
2. We observed how ten apps transmitted user data to at least 135 different third parties involved in advertising and/or behavioural profiling, exposing (yet again) a vast network of companies monetizing user data and using it for their own purposes. Technical testing conducted by cyber security firm, mnemonic. Technical report available here: https://fil.forbrukerradet.no/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/mnemonic-technical-report-out-of-control-v1.0.pdf
3. Dating app @Grindr shared detailed user data with a large number of third parties. Data included the fact that you are using the app (clear indication of sexual orientation), IP address (personal data), Advertising ID, GPS location (very revealing), age, and gender. With help from mnemonic and Zach Edwards of Victory Medium, we analysed the data flow and the role of the various actors involved with data sharing from Grindr.

Kinda neat fact, although we've had Merchandise piracy, we've not had Book piracy or far as I can tell even resale. :)

We are barely known (that helps), but more than that, I think each of our backers wanted to support us, not just consume a product.
It is up to us as creators to foster #opportunities for folks to see the difference, understand the difference, and communicate our abilities to PROVE the difference, between #Consumption, and Investment.
As creators we definitely understand #Investment, but communication is often tough.

Many of us are naturally #Abrasive or #Shy. Neither lending expertly to marketing or community engagement. You can learn to leverage either but it's often not a given.

A thread on the #Labour Labour Party's #BroadbandForAll policy. There are three elements: 1; #zero price #freebroadband, (2) #Nationalisation and (3) #monopoly.
Zero Price. One argument for zero price is that there are positive externalities and network effects for bringing everybody to the same high level service. A second is And that leaving poorer citizens and lower margin business behind is less inclusive.
Clearly charging those who can afford would make it less costly to the taxpayer, and be less regressive, but it is messy. But surely over time that would emerge? And behavioural insights might help design 100% take up with mostly positive pricing.

Things they don’t tell you when you take up road cycling (a thread)

1- you will go numb in places you didn’t think were capable of such a thing. Girls, I’m talking intimate, boys, I’m talking Johnson.

#road #cycling #bike #ride #FitnessMotivation
2- you must fuel! Also, hitting the wall is called bonking. I’m a child. Every time someone says they’re bonking, that’s me laughing.

#roadbike #carbs #fuel #sweet
3- flies. Actually no, they’re not flies, they’re bullets. Today has been the day of the black beetle... oh my word do they hurt! If I hadn’t been wearing glasses, I’d be blind. Good protein though. Must have eaten thousands.

After the #MetPolice tried & failed to frame me & after ex #MetPoliceUK turned private investigators @Surelock_ tried & failed to frame me & my mum, attempt number 3 was #EE & #UKMail. I had never used @EE but they made me their customer

#SwitchtoO2 #o2 #Vodafone #Three #LBC
#EE said I had ordered mobile phones & sim cards & #UKMail said they had delivered them to me (with me showing my passport) at home. I did neither. I didn't order any mobiles & I didn't receive any mobiles. It was a complete stitch up

Procès #FranceTelecom Pour cette 25e audience, seront évoqués quatre suicides survenus en septembre, octobre, novembre 2009, à Lanester, Paris, Annecy, Lanion. LT à suivre ici ou sur @humanite_fr
Premier cas évoqué : Stéphanie Moison, 32 ans, qui s’est suicidée par défenestration le 11 septembre 2009. Elle a écrit un mail à son père « je serai là 23e salariée à me suicider ». Elle remet en cause la réorganisation à #FranceTelecom
« Je change de chef et pour avoir ce que je vais avoir, je préfère encore mourir » écrit-elle à son père le jour de son suicide. Elle craignait la nomination d’une nouvelle cheffe qu’elle trouve autoritaire. #FranceTélécom

A Note To Fellow #Software #Founders: Help Is Always Close At Hand
By Christian Owens (Forbes)
☝️There are tried and tested #solutions so reach out:
1.Stop thinking everything in terms of #competition
2.The world of VC is small so it’s easy to find people you need #advice from
3. #networkeffect& #globalisation: global issue for one company is always a local one for another
👉see P.Thiel “Zero to one”
4. Acknowledge that being a founder is a really, really hard thing to do with your life
☝️Avoid the Dunning-Kruger effect (the lower your ability the better you think you are at it)

The Adecco Arrest and Cover Up

Most organisations contain their problems, but some just look like amateurs

#Adecco #Metpolice #Lovewhatyoudo #CEO1Month #Leadership #Training
#Adecco did everything to try to avoid confirming my mother's attendance even going to the lengths of calling #MetPolice to arrest her
If someone's house gets burgled, the #metpolice haven't got the resources to turn up. However, if you request a confirmation letter at #Adecco which you require for #DWP, then @metpoliceuk are quick on the scene

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

#skynews #lbc #theresamay #uk #bbcnews #coverup #c4news #worldnews #ukgov
Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

Banyak banget yang nanya, ngerjain startup tu asik ya? Gw share dikit ya ilmu gw di per-startup-an selama 13 tahun terakhir. Bakal panjang ya jadi sabar-sabar ngikutinnya
Gw yakin banyak banget di sini yang ngebayangin jadi kaya Mark Zuckerberg gara-gara nonton the social network. Bikin startup tidak seindah itu, apalagi jaman sekarang, PENUH PENDERITAAN. Iya lo ga salah baca. PENUH PENDERITAAN. Tapi bukan berarti ga asik kok sob nanti lo liat
Pengalaman startup pertama gw dimulai tahun 2005. Startup pertama gw adalah sebuat software house. Jaman itu masih ngenes lah. Kenapa ngenes? Itu jamannya masih kalo lo di bidang IT harus bisa jadi superman yang bisa segala macem dan dibayar serendah mungkin

I was just asked 'What is #GameB?'

This is a great question that I don't think there exists a great answer for. @BretWeinstein and @EricRWeinstein coined the term and it stuck (I think more than they intended)

I first heard the term #GameB in @joerogan's Joe Rogan Experience
Here's a link to the episode's unofficial notes: jrefan.com/the-joe-rogan-…

Here's roughly where @BretWeinstein begins talking about what gets him to #GameB:
In my best efforts, I would describe #GameB as the following set of statements:

The current game we play as humans is #GameA.

GameA has certain 'rules' set in place. It's hard to describe them all, but a good summary could be 'Our current set of laws and social norms.'
