So what was life like as a Digital Native in 1978?
Well I'll tell you...
Firstly you might never actually see your computer. Many people used dumb terminals linked to a mainframe or minicomputer system somewhere in the office basement. Access was on a timeshare basis, with dozens of users sharing access to the same system.

Today took more out of me than it was supposed to, & I want to remind white people that what seems like “grammar” to you can actually be a very deep issue for Black people. Whether we are talking AAVE or how to make our struggles manifest in a language never meant to include us.
Standard professional English is not intersectional. As Adrienne Rich said “this is the oppressor’s language yet I need it to talk to you.” So we need to sit with our discomfort about new words and even new phrases that violate grammatical traditions.

I lost some of my ambivalence/guilt about having these parkas when I got stuck in the woods overnight in -15F. I pulled my arms inside my parka and slept on the ground--and stayed warm enough to keep myself and the dogs safe.
Since we're talking about gear this weekend, and I get a lot of questions directly, are y'all down for a list of my winter recommendations?

“Divine in the stone...ancient art of Northwestern Aryavart.” Part - II
Artistic heritage of medieval Eastern Punjab (Indian Punjab) - Forgotten legacy of the past & its modern theft.
When it comes to medieval Indian art, people talk about celebrated sculptural art of Pala-Senas in Bihar-Bengal, famous elaborate carvings of Hoysalas, Graceful art of Rajput kingdoms and so on.
But Punjab is seen nowhere in this golden age of India!
