Friend: Do you listen to (NAME) podcast?
Me: No, I...
Friend: Oh, you may like it (proceeds to describe podcast)
Me: Uhm, I don't listen to podcasts. Podcasts are basically talk radio for Millennials and I can't get into talk radio.
Friend: Oh
Me: :akkoShrug: You do you, tho.

There isn't any. All the US pressure is on Israel.

"Where Is the American Pressure on Hamas?"

https://www.wsj.com/articles/hamas-hostages-israel-war-biden-pressure-0c428e8e

"Biden could set a deadline for Hamas to release the hostages—or else the U.S. will double its lethal support to Israel."

Not likely that's; going to happen.

If you're just joining fediverse welcome to Mastodon. Cat is not happy about all this work even on caturday. Why?

I had to mute over 200 posts in the last 30 minutes or so. Cleaning up the feeds so you can get to a few good posts will take lots of effort because there's no algorithm

You'll notice many posts come from sources like dlvr ... review them and use filter/block

Learning Japanese the Right Way

After reading about Irina’s experiences of not learning Japanese, some people wonder how I learned Japanese correctly. While I can relate to a few experiences. Things such as picking up word immersion and some I can agree with, such as a language learning partner.
However, I disagree with some methods. Yep, it’s Duolingo, as it’s very […]

I get that we as humans all have a right to an opinion. In fact, I personally respect that we all have a right to an opinion.

But please, do NOT try and shove your opinion down someone else's throat and tell them that if their opinion doesn't match your opinion, then they are wrong and they need to think about changing that opinion.

That's NOT how this world works and it's certainly not how it's going to work with me or anything I'm associated with!

Why do we still stick to the paradigm of sections being required components of organizations?

Back when newspapers were shared communal media that everyone read, it made sense to have comics and crosswords and opinion sections for those who were uninterested in the news.

But nowadays? How is it not just constantly detracting from their core business model? Why do we continue this nonsense?

"October 7 denial is the progressive version of Trumpism"

"Those questioning the investigations of the mass rapes on October 7 instead of questioning the rapists are agents of 'alternative facts' and cannot be considered serious journalists."

Rank, ratings scores, likes count.. are a dark pattern
Sharing and discovering stuff, ideas should not be only be driven by its popularity.
Best to interact and send a reply/comment than add a boost/favorite/like that does not bring any value

SEO is a dark pattern that causes some trees to hide the forest

Newsfeed is a dark pattern causing fatigue, depression, FOMO, never ending consumption of content

Notifications are a dark pattern of stealing our attention
