ordinary life does not interest me. i seek only the high moments.i am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous.- anais nin
i want to start a revolution but they dont take me seriously. do i have to be a black man with consecutive platinum albums to be taken seriously?do i have to be in army uniforms with highest ranks on my shoulders and ak47 strapped people over my back. instead, i would not talk about it and be a lonely blogger forever. i wont fight against discrimination or other pity problems. there are people out there doing that with selfish endeavours behind the coats of social benefits. but we are not supposed to see that. we are supposed to be hopeful till the extent they want us to be. they give us compensated freedom and we feel the power. its pity how blind and decepted herds of people we have become. statism has never existed anywhere. its dictatorship in different form that we live in. we were dictated from the time we took birth and still are. fear of society imposed consequences has brought us where we are. but still i feel responsible and guilty for not listening to the voice inside my head. the voices outside, the rules of the world are adamant on making me part of their herd. but there is a voice inside. that is original as well my definition. there are classes that dont interest, community where i dont belong, relation that i dont understand, norms which fail to satisfy my logic, decisions that i dont relate to. and they tell me there is nowhere to escape. but, the voice inside knows the wayout. do i have the guts or the will? can i fight? evenmore am i prepared to disappoint and figuratively die?
but, i want to start a revolution. i dont sleep and i have lost my apetite. i can feel the chains around my head getting tighter with each passing day. its just me on my side against the world. i will retain my original choices and expressions. maybe, i will die. but, before that i will be a revolution
ps:- inspired by the short film “secretprojectrevolution” directed by Madonna and Steven Klein. freedom is personal anarchy to me. i hope you got that.
directed by madonna and steven klein, the fil talks about freedom at personal level. it made me ponder and realise my idea of freedom. watch it. maybe it could help you realise your shackles too…
there are things around,that individuals are always bound to. whether one likes it or not,it is difficult for people to get over it.but the chain always looks better when broken. i broke some chains today. the time for networking socially is over for me. it has been a while since it became mainstream now and eventually everything where the majority gets involved becomes a stupidity. this is a stupid world and social media is its small and very strong representation. i dont exactly look down on people who are still on it, its just i see a larger pursuit in my vision. this year is very crucial to me, to be anywhere close to what i aspire to see myself as. i need to be very focused. there is no scope for any distraction. anyways, i can satisfy my itch to communicate to a larger audience through my blog. for sure, you will be hearing from me very often now.
its been quite a while since i reported. i have been very busy lately with my exam preparations though its all seeming invain now. anyways, enough bitching about my life. let me move to the topic..
LEARNING TO CODE ONLINE:part 1
i was talking about learning to code online. as mentioned on the Ted blog(which i reblogged), there are numerous options. but how many of the platforms to learn code are actually helpful for a novice who has none or little idea about coding. to keep my post precise(lame execuse;actual reason is lack of time)and as descriptive as i can be i will take one option this time
i thought i will have to describe the difficulties and ways to overcome it while using the chosen app. but this app exceeded all my expectations. the interface is very user friendly and the most important thing is it starts from very basic and keep things very simple for starters like me. for now the app is a winner and i can recommend it to anybody.
iam writing this with 2 days left in my semester exams so there is hardly any time but somehow i have completed the first unit of the wevb development course i.e., HTML BASIC-1. as i go through my learning journey( i.e., mostly off curriculum) i plan to keep this blog updated. for now signing off
well,the old man has a point. coding is the future.i plan to go through the things mentioned in the blog and give you a review of how ‘at ease’ it would be to go through the described path. mr.resnick i know you are a man of great knowledge but pardon me if i contradict a little in my further post.
Teens, tweens and kids are often referred to as “digital natives.” Having grown up with the Internet, smartphones and tablets, they’re often extraordinarily adept at interacting with digital technology. But Mitch Resnick, who spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet, is skeptical of this descriptor. Sure, young people can text and chat and play games, he says, “but that doesn’t really make you fluent.”
[ted_talkteaser id=1657]Fluency, Resnick proposes in this TED Talk, comes not through interacting with new technologies, but through creating them. The former is like reading, while the latter is like writing. He means this figuratively — that creating new technologies, like writing a book, requires creative expression — but also literally: to make new computer programs, you actually must write the code.
The point isn’t to create a generation of programmers, Resnick argues. Rather, it’s that coding is a gateway to broader learning.“When you learn to read…
