In a way the federation is reminiscent of the past of world wide web. The web is a network of entities and their websites connected through hyperlinks. The generation of internet users who came online after the rise of the platforms haven't been able to experience the richness of the open web. The harms of letting monopolies control individuals' attention has been well documented in recent democratic elections all over the world. Mastodon is an experience in individuality and freedom for such netizens.
It has been an incredibly long time since I last sent you a newsletter. That has not been because of complacency, but rather because of technical issues in setting up a newsletter server. Now, I have built a software on my own to be able to send newsletters and therefore I hope to be able to send a lot more newsletters in the coming days.
Last week I wrote a lot of posts. But the one I really want you to read and think about is the one on "reverse sexism". Is it possible for a woman to be sexist towards a man? If you think the answer is straightforward, please do read the post and let me know your comment by replying to this mail.
That newsletter software I mentioned in the beginning, I have written about it here.
That is it for today. Lots more to come in the coming weeks.

I don't know what makes everyone like this book. Is it the horror? Is it the eerie resemblance to reality? Is it the inescapable big brother watching over them that is making them like it? It is THOUGHTCRIME to think so.
As you might know, twitter has a character limit. What if I reach above that? There is a very easy chance that one overcomes the character limit of twitter. That is not because people are usually lavish with their words, but that is only because twitter is frugal about what it lets others enter into it. So, twitter cannot have more characters. But that is not true for my sharing platform. I have built something for myself based on Blogger. And Blogger allows unlimited characters, virtually. There is a lot I can write and it won't matter. The only question then is how it will appear on twitter. This post will answer that.
This is my new twitter. I will be sharing content here and only here. That is to say, this will be the primary medium for sharing out links and lot of other things. Articles, URLs, websites, images, what not. It will be my instagram also. It will be my showcase.
