      Great article! Suggests a few more ways to handle boredom.

      The technological advances of recent years have put an eternity of entertainment at our fingertips, but this has made matters only worse – in part, by removing us further from our here and now. Instead of feeling sated and satisfied, we are desensitised and in need of ever more stimulation – ever more war, ever more gore, and ever more hardcore.

      Next time you find yourself in a boring situation, throw yourself fully into it – instead of doing what we normally do, which is to step further and further back. If this feels like too much of an ask, the Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh advocates simply appending the word ‘meditation’ to whatever activity it is that you find boring, for example, ‘standing-in-line meditation’.

      To identify whether an article is clickbait (based on headlines) or not comes with the experience of reading a lot.

      I put quite a lot of trust in headlines, oddly enough, because I figure that headlines are written by loyal allies of the writers who are paid to find and express what is best in the piece. So if the headline writer cannot produce a compelling headline then that is a very strong indicator that there’s not much good in the piece.

      Shanghai-born illustrator Xiao Hua Yang says technology can be both freeing and limiting. “It makes things easier and faster. But there’s always going to be a disconnect between your brain, your hand, and the computer,” he explains. Even after years of using Photoshop, Yang says he’s still learning new features every day. With the frequency of software updates, drawing with Adobe’s software can often feel like working with an infinitely shape-shifting brush. “Nobody can be perfectly fluent in technology,” he observes.

      Great article! Writing research papers and then publishing it in journals, waiting for people to read and comment, all these processes are tedious and take time to disseminate the information.

      Twitter is especially empowering for a particular kind of person who’s unique and might stand out weirdly, and in normal settings that uniqueness would be a problem – but on the internet, it’s an incredible asset.

      Tweetstorm seems to be the best way to discuss specific research subject so that other researchers and curious people can also take part in research and come to the conclusion soon.

      There are no more zero days. What’s a zero day? A zero day is when you don’t do a single fucking thing towards whatever dream or goal or want or whatever that you got going on. No more zeros. I’m not saying you gotta bust an essay out everyday, that’s not the point. The point I’m trying to make is that you have to make yourself, promise yourself, that the new SYSTEM you live in is a NON-ZERO system. Didnt’ do anything all fucking day and it’s 11:58 PM? Write one sentence. One pushup. Read one page of that chapter. One. Because one is non zero. You feel me? When you’re in the super vortex of being bummed your pattern of behaviour is keeping the vortex goin, that’s what you’re used to. Turning into productivity ultimate master of the universe doesn’t happen from the vortex. It happens from a massive string of CONSISTENT NON ZEROS. That’s rule number one. Do not forget.

      Many people want to become TikTok stars. Nowadays it's normal to advertise or influence the product or idea. Some people have been spending at least an hour on creating and watching TikTok videos. Whenever they stuck in a traffic jam, to just time pass they start watching TikTok videos.

      Whether you call TikTok a tool to showcase creativity or waste of time, certainly omnipresent and cheaper Internet has been creating ways of showcasing freedom of expression.

      Quoting some nuggets:

      “Scenius stands for the intelligence and the intuition of a whole cultural scene. It is the communal form of the concept of the genius.”

      "Rapid exchange of tools and techniques — As soon as something is invented, it is flaunted and then shared. Ideas flow quickly because they are flowing inside a common language and sensibility."

      “The best way to contribute to a brand-new environment is not by trying to prove what a wonderful addition you are. It’s by trying to have a neutral impact, to observe and learn from those who are already there, and to pitch in with grunt work wherever possible.”

      Interesting read about boredom!

      Sometimes too many choices create confusion and we end up wasting time deciding what to eat, read, wear, watch. Whether to be specific or random, whether to do gossip or intellectual talking and end up doing nothing and boredom continues...

      An amazing article that emphasizes the work culture and how bragging about working for more hours is not the right way to accomplish. By using productivity tools efficiently, avoiding unnecessary meetings to get things done. Focus on working strategically, spending around 40 hours a week.

      Great article! The future is uncertain, but at the current stage of a relationship, you need to figure out what's good-bad, similarity-differences. Nobody is 100% perfect, needs to accept some flaws and respect each other's choices without any terms and conditions.

      One of the best newsletters to subscribe to stay up to date about Indian tech.

      "Every sector— banking, retail, media, automotive, telecom and consumer internet— is being disrupted. Understanding a new trend or a uniquely Indian business model can take hours of research, face to face meetings and calls. Even then, it’s easy to miss nuances that are unique to India. Here my aim is to make that easy for you."
