A ~1800yo stone Buddha made in a Roman style found in Egypt, likely commissioned by Indian Buddhists. The past is not made of isolated cultures in bubbles- people have always traveled, interacted, been a part of each others' lives. hyperallergic.com/818372/stone


এটা যদি কেবিন-এ দেখতে পাওয়া যায় তার মানে বুঝতে হবে যে এই কমিউনিটি গুলো আসলে কিছু না, যে বা যিনি কমিউনিটিটি তৈরী করেছেন তাঁকে ফলো করলে তখন আমার অন্য ইনসটানসে দেখতে পাব।
আর আমি যদি কমিউনিটি না কি ম্যাগাজিন পেজে সাবসকরাইব করি, তাহলে, আমি এট সাইন দিয়ে পোস্ট করলে ম্যাগাজিনটাতে পোসট হবে।

Can I get some help?

I tried making my first Omeka site, documenting sites of anti-Asian housing discrimination in Berkeley, California.

I'd love any suggestions or early feedback — technical, spelling, unclear text, etc. Thank you!

I am once again asking you to make use of the filter, mute and block features of Mastodon for the trivial crap that amounts to “I don’t like this person” and only report actionable bad behaviour to your instances moderators (and by extension the moderators of the instance the user is on, if it’s not the same as yours).

If you can't really tell anymore, it wasn't really funny. ;)

"Sudden death" is another BIG LIE from the anti-vax brigade. Scientists and doctors around the world have confirmed repeatedly the astronomically low risks from vaccines that save millions of lives. What has been shown is that #covid19 can cause cardiac and CNS issues and death.

The Fediverse is the biggest communications revolution in a generation.

I know, sounds like hype.

Many tech revolutions have been promised and haven't arrived.

Where's my 3D-printed house? My self-driving car? My AR glasses?

Compared to those things, the Fediverse looks less grandiose.

So am I sure about this Fediverse revolution? So far, this just looks like Twitter.

Yes, I'm sure.

The Fediverse fixes one of the Internet's biggest pain points. Let me explain. 🧵

This is why, when I called it a bullshit generating machine, I was using the term bullshit in its technical sense. Philosopher Harry Frankfurt explained, in On Bullshit, that bullshit is speech intended to be persuasive without concern for the truth. For Frankfurt, the difference between a liar and a bullshitter Is this a liar knows the truth and is trying to lead you elsewhere where is the bullshitter either doesn’t know or doesn’t care wants to sound like they know what they’re talking about.

Mastodon: What you need to know for your security and privacy

If you’re leaving Twitter for Mastodon, here are some things you should know.


Please reblog/boost if you think this would help folks you know who are new to Mastodon. (Likes are appreciated, but won't help spread the advice)

Twitter is “kabaddi kabaddi kabaddi kadabddi” while Mastodon is “marco…” “…polo”

Never forget, a 13-year study of a dozen cities found that protected bike-lanes led to a drastic decline in fatalities for ALL ROAD USERS. And painted bike-lanes? No safety improvement at all. As for sharrows, it’s safer to NOT have them. Via #StreetsblogUSA, read their article. #bikelanes #bikes #cities #transportation #mobility #sharrows #infrastructure #urbanplanning
