BJP supporters wake up and get mad that some Muslim ruler 'invaded the country' like 1000 years back when there wasn't even an India, but are chill about the fact an external power has invaded the country's territory at this moment.

🇧🇩 Bangladesh is taking on China by capturing their garment business

China makes bases&occupies parts of Ladakh. For months,Govt watches it w/o response. When Chinese excursions are flagged by indep journalists,govt sends our soldiers to be killed. Then Modi goes on AIR to deny Chinese incursion. Now we ban Chinese apps like TikTok! What a circus! twitter.com/airnewsalerts/stat

We condemn acts of violence against citizens in police custody.

We exhort the investigation agencies to investigate the case of Tuticorin district expeditiously and fairly.

All human beings have the capacity to be determined and to direct that determination in whatever direction they like. Realizing we have this potential gives us a fundamental strength, enabling us to deal with any difficulty, whatever situation we are facing, without losing hope.

@DeejayBaj The argument isn't that Wechat or TikTok have a case under Article 19. It's that Indian citizens have a right under Article 19(1)(a). TikTok and Wechat have a right under Article 14 and under s.69A of the IT Act.

4. There is a strong case to be made that this is unconstitutional. Many would argue that code is speech. Even if one disagrees, at least those apps that provide a platform for expression or alow access to info are protected by Art.19(1)(a). And this ban falls afoul of Art.19(2).

RT @pranesh
3. If citizens' privacy and data security were of concern for the govt, then why didn't it initiate any actions under s.43A of the IT Act?

RT @pranesh
2. The govt has not shown why these specific apps were a threat to India's integrity or security of the state. If the govt was worried about official secrets, then the govt could have ordered those who handling official secrets not to use specific apps.

RT @pranesh
1. Section 69A of the IT Act doesn't allow for bans in the interest of data privacy / localization. So it is necessary for the govt to demonstrate ban of this set of Chinese apps is in the interest of "sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, security of the State".

.@logic: They haven't touched any of the UPI apps coming from China such as MiPay, etc. which handle more sensitive data including Aadhaar, biometric (facial recognition) and financial data. This is not an economic warfare angle at play, but these particular apps.

I think Docker was created as people took an old programmer`s joke too seriously.
Customer: Software does not work!
Developer: It works on my machine!
Manager: So we just ship your machine to the customer. Problem solved.

"How do I get started contributing to open source? What are some good entry-level tasks to work on?"

These are questions I am often asked, so here's the answer for everyone to read:

Scratch your own itches. Find bugs that are causing you problems, conspicuously missing features you would find useful, and implement them - in literally any free/open-source software you're using. Don't worry about not being familiar with the codebase or programming language or whatever, just solve one problem at a time.

Try this: next time you go to report a bug, report it, and immediately start working on a patch which fixes the problem.

Scratching your own itches is the best source of motivation and maximizes your productivity.

Often that means not contributing to my projects at all, if you're asking how to get started with a specific project. Maybe you like it because it's flawless 😉 (hah!), in which case it wouldn't need your help anyway. Go fix something which is bugging you in another project. Spread the contributor wealth around and eventually it'll come back to my projects, too.

there is this constant idea among those raised in unjust societies that complete equality is inherently dehumanizing, because it doesn't let anyone get to be better than others. "no participation prizes." the "best" must constantly be acknowledged.

this is bullshit, and speaks to a dark way of looking at the world. You don't have to be better than others, why would you? you can be your absolute best, and take great pride in that, but why compare yourself to others? liTerally what the fuck do you gain from that, other than a mean-spirited and aggressive outlook on your fellow person?

Let me spell it out for you: You think you deserve acknowledgement for your imaginary "ranking" among others in all things because you've been programmed deeply to always want to climb the ladder of your societies' caste system. Because otherwise, you can't eat, or get medical attention, or ever feel safe.

The solution is NOT to enforce this ranking and demand kudos. It is to make it so that everyone is safe, and so nobody needs to worry about rank anymore. Nobody being "best", because everyone is safe and content, is the true victory.
