An amazing article by Greg Yeric of ARM on the future of Integrated circuits. He takes you on a journey from early 19th century Cavendish laboratory at Cambridge and explains how the fundamental research work done at Cavendish plays an important role in leading a possible path to ICs in 2030

But what's even more depressing is that the country seems to have lost its will to fight this descent into darkness

Shout out to the trend #TaxPayersWithJNU

Follow it, amplify it.
This is a struggle, not for some island called JNU, but to ensure that University education is a right for all, not a privilege for the rich.

I am a taxpayer and I stand by the JNU students' struggle for affordable education. The govt. has been wasting taxpayers' money on things that do not help people in any way.
I demand that the govt spends tax revenue on things that matter.

@Deepsealioness 2mins Silence for all those selfish fucks, who still claim that things are not bad yet and that there is still some hope for this society.

If you don’t stand for students protesting for their right for equal access to education, who the fuck will you stand for??

JNU students are a beacon of hope. Taking blows on their bodies, they march forward for a better future for all, for everyone's right to education. Shame on you JNU VC, for bringing this situation where students are being brutalized for demanding their basic right #EmergencyinJNU

Former PM #ManmohanSingh criticised the #Modi government’s approach to policies of the previous govt. saying that the govt tends to “look at everything and everyone through a tainted prism of suspicion and distrust.”

Finally I deactivated my account on birdie. Why two places when most of the people I follow are here

For todays I'm going to do something a bit different. We have a lot of new users, one of the biggest surges we have seen in a while. As such a lot of new users are looking for high quality, long-standing, accounts to follow. Similarly many of the new users need some help getting attention and making new friends.

As such I am going to do this in a few parts. One for old users I have mentioned in previous posts, as well as some of the new users who have been making quality posts and been active for at least a week now. Hopefully this will be more helpful.

Also a section for some bots might be useful.

I will use a persons profile description here as I dont want to misrepresent anyone.

Know those affected by fee hike at JNU - Ramjal Meena, a security guard at JNU cleared JNU entrance in 2019.

Millionare TV anchors who malign JNU from their AC studios have nothing but contempt for the poor. Thats why they justify fee hike. #FeesMustFall

I should bring this thread to a close since I've strayed far from where I started. A quick TLDR:
1. Hero stones are super useful in reconstructing some aspects of Indian military history
2. Both hero-stones and literature from the medieval period favour elites, and rarely centre the experiences of the folks that did most of the dying.
3. Deccani states - even in the 800s - could be quite innovative. War does not tolerate fools.
4. War elephants kick ass.
New thread next week! Gimme attention!🤓

Tale of two RTIs:

Nov 2019–Modi era: UGC rejected a simple RTI asking for the period of Manmohan Singh’s appointment and his tenure as it’s Chairman, citing obscure reasons.

June 2012—Manmohan era: Same qns, UGC sends a bunch of documents with file-notings.
