Thanks @Buttarelli_G for this Op-Ed: "Big tech is still violating your #privacy" The "take-it-or-leave it" 'consent' approach shows how strongly network effects lock-in people washingtonpost.com/news/theworldp…
to the incumbent platforms. It's a paradox that the Founding Fathers in the US were fearful of accumulation of power in government but that recent successive governments have let the accumulation of power in Big Tech unchecked supposedly on the belief that competition would keep
actors in check. When #data is increasingly perceived as being an essential facility for a at least number of sectors and its dominant players, it is consequently challenging to build a service which provides the choices that competitive markets are meant to provide when

Now that the lawyers have run their marathon and we wait for the top court to rule, a small personal diary note thread on #Aadhaar & me.

Huge thanks to community of people who have widened my wisdom of how society works. Fellow helpless people helping each other.
It started sometime in 2011, when I knew nothing, enrolled along with family.But our enrollment packets were lost, EID wasnt even searchable. I did write some emails to support, but yielded nothing more than, please enroll again. As the need wasn't real, did not enroll.
Parents gave up at a later date, enrolled, got UID successfully generated. I resisted, mostly because of laziness, but did not have developed trust enough to enroll. On random browsing sessions, have heard Usha Ramanathan on YouTube, but never took deep dive into issues.

#ReadTheThread. Ten things every Hindu can do!
I keep getting asked, ‘what can we, ordinary Hindus do for the Dharma?’

I am no expert on Dharma, but here are ten easy steps we can all take at our individual levels to assert our identity as Hindus. #Hindu #Identity #HinduPride
1) Tell your kids or nephews or nieces, or kids you know stories from our history and religion. Buy them Indic books. Take them to see Hindu temple architecture, and when they ask you, pointing at a vandalised Murti, ‘what happened here’? Tell them the truth, with the names!
2) Have a Pooja corner in your house. Have a regular ritual. Light a lamp. Make children pray before they set out for school. Just a simple chanting of a few shlokas is enough to keep them connected if you do it on a daily bases. Visit a temple on festivals or on their birthday.

The current dialogue about #DACA affects everyone in the US. How?

#Racism & #scapegoating & affect all minorities.

Deporting #DREAMers & undocumented #immigrants will have very negative impacts to the #economy. That affects everyone else. THREAD 1 #DreamActNow #immigration
The sociological concept of the “other” is important to this discussion. If you haven’t heard of it before, here is a brief overview from othersociologist.com/otherness-reso…. 2 #identity #race #sociology #Science
People in power define social identities as they have the means to control the narrative – news coverage, platforms to broadcast their platforms, & the power to influence law enforcement and legislation. Social identity affects how people perceive themselves and others. 3
