Some people say these,
1. Look how capitalism is innovating. (or)
2. Look how innovation is flourishing under capitalism.

Here is my take on it. As far as human beings are around, innovation takes place no matter under what 'ism' we live in. It is human beings who innovate.

Capitalism funds the innovation which it feels will capture value for private profit and then scales it to all market. Rest will not even spoken about.

Which innovation flourishes under which ism is the question here.

Is Mindfulness Meditation BS?

Buddhist practice has been co-opted as a capitalist tool. That can be the first step to enlightenment.

Would it change the social psychology of social media if we replaced the terms "follow" and "followers" in the UI with "listen" and "listeners", or "read" and "readers", or some other set of terms with a less ... well ... culty ring to them?

I don't understand why there are bans on Huawei hardware. It is the equivalent of (proprietary) software spying users of keystrokes like the ones found in Windows or some versions of Ubuntu that sent data to Amazon.

Looks like RMS is visiting India this January. https://rms-tour.gnu.org.in/ And, he's also talking at IISc, Bengaluru.

We live our life trying to understand each other, using little bits of reason we accumulate along the way, striving to find someone we relate to and when we finally do, it's already over.
