The idea is to instead acknowledge the feeling of doubt, quickly determine if there’s truth to it, adjust accordingly and then let the feeling pass.
This is one thing I'm learning and relearning. That it's okay to feel, take what you can from it and move on. Really difficult but at the end of the day, I reevaluate myself and notice the subtle changes, and that makes it all worth another try for another day.
“They’ve stepped in downstream and taken the intellectual investment of authors and the financial investment of publishers, they’re interfering and giving this away.”
Traditional libraries pay licensing fees to publishers and agree to make them available for a particular period or a certain number of times. Internet Archive, on the other hand, acquires copies through donated or purchased books, which are then scanned and put online.
Free ebooks are so convenient for consumers and yet so terrible for the authors/publishers. I've always thought they get at least something from sites like this. Apparently not. Wow. This is terrible.

my own little corner of internet that I can spill my thoughts into without fear of them being washed away by the social media tide. Most of it may be inconsequential whatever, but it’s my inconsequential whatever.
Love this statement! And it makes me wonder why I haven't published my inconsequential whatevers in my drafts.
A team from Monash, Swinburne and RMIT universities logged a data speed of 44.2 terabits per second (Tbps). At that speed, users could download more than 1,000 high-definition movies in less than a second.
I like to think of it like product development: you have a grand vision of what you want the product to be (in this case, “Future You”), but you start by identifying the core features that make your product special.
This is a really nice (and effective) way of putting it.
So true. Seeing stuff from the old days are so cringeworthy, but then again that was their norm.
Interesting how I never really looked at these things the other way (as stated in the article). Like many others, I've always thought they were promoting, and not simply reflecting what is already in and around us. Learning everyday.
