Broderick Greer on Twitter: "We can never overstate the surprise Oppression Voyeurs who thirst for us to say, “Our childhoods were horrible. We did nothing but run from police every day.” Be complex. Disrupt their narratives with joy."
We can never overstate the surprise Oppression Voyeurs who thirst for us to say, “Our childhoods were horrible. We did nothing but run from police every day.”

Be complex. Disrupt their narratives with joy.

Can students who are constantly on their devices actually learn? | Aeon Essays
A study from Princeton University shows that we process information better when taking notes by hand because writing is slower than typing (an argument often spun in favour of laptops), which helps students learn and retain the material. Similarly, people better comprehend what they’re reading if it’s on paper rather than on the screen. In a study from the University of Stavanger in Norway, readers on Kindle struggled to remember plot details in comparison with those who read printed books, perhaps because the physical act of turning the pages helps our memories encode the words.

Say what you mean. Bear witness. Iterate.

Why we must remember to delete – and forget – in the digital age | Technology | The Guardian
"Since the early days of humankind," he writes, "we have tried to remember, to preserve our knowledge, to hold on to our memories and we have devised numerous devices and mechanisms to aid us. Yet through millennia, forgetting has remained just a bit easier and cheaper than remembering."
