If you’re a product manager working on a feed or search interface inside of a giant tech company, you have access to hundreds of billions of hours of human attention. Could you help your users spend one hour a year learning about what’s coming for the world?
Everyone who writes code on the weekends eventually thinks to themselves, You know, if things bend my way, I think I’ve got the next Facebook.

Better to realize that, a human can understand a human accurately than a machine. Then I come across a biological machine.
We’re like machines; machines are like us. We are basically biological machines.
It means we’re made up of atoms and molecules. They obey the laws of nature and evolved to produce us. They are the power behind our engines. We’re just big chemical reactions. Each part of a machine is made by means of the good old laws of Newtonian physics, which were deterministic. But when you put this conglomeration together, it’s capable of unpredictable or chaotic behavior. Unpredictability is one of the hallmarks of creativity. So right from the word go, machines can be creative. Since we are machines, we can just go out of existence like a machine. We can have consciousness, but when the electrons stop flowing, consciousness disappears and that’s it. But that doesn’t take away from our creativity. We can still be creative in an inspiring way. We can have hopes, dreams, and aspirations for humankind. But we are machines, just like computers are machines.

The code tells the story of a company trying to weave the illusion that women on the site are plentiful and eager.
It hold hundreds of readable company emails that revealed the company was paying people to create fake women’s profiles and to chat with men on the site.

This is going to be a...Data Dump series of the articles!!
None of them had ever talked to men on the site or even used the site at all after creating a profile.
They were paying for a fantasy.

The dream is an involuntary art of poetry.
You can learn a great deal about someone by spending time in their home – not deducing facts like Sherlock Holmes, but absorbing subtle understandings of character, taste, temperament and life history.
You gotta be careful with the imagination. It matters how it’s wielded. There’s a lot of opportunity for critique, but hope too.

Deep down, you've controlled the system, mortality leads your life.
From the first-person stance, you navigate the world as an agent trying to realize your projects and satisfy your desires. From the second-person perspective, you understand yourself and the world through the lens of other people, who are a locus of projects and preferences of their own; projects and preferences that make legitimate demands on your time and attention. From the third-person stance, you understand yourself as one among many, called to fit yourself into the shared standards and rules governing a world made up of a multitude of creatures like you.

Ideal good read, completely agrees with the author. When we're not surrounded by a particular thing it matters less for us. Even, online spending has been involved in it because of the way people spend money, after all, it's just a game of a click we fail to realize what matters more.
It's Just One Click Away!!
Let's not pay attention & we'll realize the amount to be spent or not. Our break point is when we look for something online and it pops up everywhere only!!
Then comes, strategies of marketing either spams, promotions, emails or even YouTube advertises & ping the same thought of buying & need to things.
Virtually all emotional spending is fuelled by social media.
Start spending in a way that feels purposeful

Pure feelings & emotions of parents who are having a disabled child we, the normal people can't explain. Only the mother & father of a child can struggle for their child with society. More than that, regret is another emotion that invisibly occurs. I can feel the author's emotions & efforts to be Happy Out There.
Really, out there is not designed for many. With no idea, how many questions they answer throughout a day they find ending their life will be the better option.
Very embarrassing & awkward question when people don't admire a child's cuteness but instead ask their parent, What’s Wrong? This is why Out Here spaces are not so delightful.
There's a lot to explain & express but leaving the comment here..
Our culture judges the worth of our kids by judging our contentment.
Parents may, with good reason, regret that a disabled child was ever born.
How would anyone determine a life “not worth living”? And who gets to decide such a thing?
Last But Not The Least, Life Is Very Beautiful, Change The Perception Only!!

Short & well written :)
The care required for love to blossom and thrive is very much the same.
The care required for love to blossom and thrive is very much the same.
Love is losing yourself in the process of caring about and showing undivided attention to someone or something, through ups and downs.
It’s as simple and as hard as that.

The choice of metaphors we use to talk about our inner lives reveals how we see ourselves and our purpose, whether we’re motivated by material, spiritual or experiential rewards. Most importantly, they disclose whether we think of ourselves as part of a wider social community with shared aims and obligations, or as lone fighters in a hostile environment, out there to secure a personal advantage.

OKAY!! More to talk about misinformation & poor media literacy but before that, I'd always Thanks To Readup Team, especially @bill & @jeff for providing this platform. I'd better say SIFT followed by Readup's Reader. I get more investigated articles as content with opinions, stories, claims & suggestions as well.
I've been learning this quality to be implemented in me for being a better internet user. Misinformation rides the greased algorithmic rails of powerful social media platforms and travels at velocities and in volumes that make it nearly impossible to stop. When we scroll down on any social media & unnoticeably spend hours of no use above statement has expressed it in the best way.
The best way to learn about a source of information is to leave it and look elsewhere, a concept called lateral reading I'd not favor this, simple to understand is ''if not now then sometime later definitely'' it doesn't mean look elsewhere.

Life is an economy.
Life is not a checklist.
Be careful with the drive to improve for the sake of improvement, the desire for more for no other reason than it’s more. Be careful adopting new dreams and goals that could harm the success and happiness you’ve already built for yourself today.
I 100% Loved reading this article. An author embellished the four stages of life & their purposes. Reading this article would help to realize which stage you're in whether stacked or not. It'll help you to refresh memories of that transition moment from which you changed life's stage, where you felt you're enough mature, where you thought you've gained the process to analyze things, people & situations.
Trauma causes us to step back and re-evaluate our deepest motivations and decisions. It allows us to reflect on whether our strategies to pursue happiness are actually working well or not.
Stage One-You will never be enough for everybody all the time, and therefore you must make decisions for yourself. The constant search for approval and validation. The absence of independent thought and personal values.
Stage Two-You will never be capable of accomplishing everything you can dream and desire. Process of self-discovery. Learning what makes us different from the people and culture around us.
Stage Three-You must realize that time and energy are limited. Building your legacy & maximizing your own potential in this life. Leaving the world a little bit different than the way you found it.
Stage Four-You must realize that change is inevitable. Making sure that legacy lasts beyond one’s death.
People at Stage One will judge others by their ability to achieve social approval. People at Stage Two will judge others by their ability to push their own boundaries and try new things. People at Stage Three will judge others based on their commitments and what they’re able to achieve. People at Stage Four judge others based on what they stand for and what they’ve chosen to live for.
Here's an article that says more about the news than the news itself says ;)
Anyone heard the term global drama previously? it's given to news headlines also freshly my personal favourite the extra dose of negativity very well suites for news. I don't consume news & its consequences are I may know less about surroundings but whereas human nature is what happens in surrounding so if it could be my negative dose I'm happy to be unaware.
People who consume the most news generally have the most skewed perceptions.
From our attitudes to immigrants to the content of our dreams, it can sneak into our subconscious and meddle with our lives in surprising ways.
The news is accidentally warping our perception of reality and not necessarily for the better.

The body, mind, and spirit want and need to dream.
The mind is more curious than intentional, more empathic than judgmental, and more present than in waking.
It is not merely an idea the mind possesses, but an idea that possesses the mind.
Depending on the depth of our vision, dreaming can be personal or trans personal, revealing the world behind the world, or the world behind the world.
The ability to shift from ordinary waking into dreamy states of consciousness is the key to the gates of sleep.
