While most opposition to the way Facebook runs its business focuses on the harmful content, simply blocking that content is not the most effective response. This to me is the most important part of Frances Haugen's testimony last week against the company. Here's the reasoning: "...

If you're tired of reading posts on the Medium platform (and really, who isn't?) you can use Scribe. Using it is very simple (this is possible the shortest instruction set I've ever linked to): replace 'medium.com' in the url with 'scribe.rip'.

I haven't tried publishing on Mirror yet though I probably will. It incorporates many of the concepts I've previously described here under the heading  of 'e-learning 3.0' - it's a decentralized blockchain-based publishing platform that allows you to embed third-party...

This article reports on a study undertaken by Wiley Education Services and hidden behind a spamwall. The study "identified a new segment of students, which they called the 'post-pandemic online learner.'" It also identifies student preferences in online learning: asynchronous...

The linguistic differences and gaps between Chinese and English are so far apart that translating from one to the other can be extremely tricky. This is also why English natives find it so difficult to learn Mandarin, and the same is also true for Chinese natives. We know for a fact that translation is such … Continue reading "31 Hilariously Bad Chinese Translation Fails."
