A lot of users from #india have flocked into #fediverse recently. All I can see is a lawyer @sanjayuvacha was banned, following which #restoresanjayuvacha started trending [1] & many boycotted 🐦. Hi to all coming here out of rage, but do stay for this is a nicer place. Take back freedom, #TootNotTweet.

Aaron Swartz. Born on this day! November 8, 1986. He would have been 33 today.

November 9 will be observed all over the world as Aaron Swartz Day — an annual event to celebrate Aaron Swartz’s legacy as an activist, programmer, entrepreneur & political organizer.

Hackathons would be organised, where diverse & passionate folks would gather & exchange ideas with each other, who believe in Freedom of #Information & #Education and Securing Digital Space for all.

Remember 9th November! 💜

Please try it out and see if it still finds the apps you expect with the keywords you expect.

Bless LibGen, honestly. Even when I have access to things via "legitimate" channels, LibGen is so much EASIER.

(And this as much as anything is a tremendous indictment of academic publishing.)
