Welcome to the Wednesday #Checkin for October 2


Speaking of simple pleasures yesterday, I came to think of the one, yet unspoken condition for it: turn off your mobile phone. Or leave it in the other room, turned to "silent" (no buzz alarm, no notifications). I checked, nobody mentioned that yesterday. How is that? Does not fumbling about with a mobile phone, or cell phone, not factor in favourably with simple or pleasure? Is that even a thing?

I have seen that yearning for being offline-for-a-bit is turned into a behavioral market even, being labelled "digital wellbeing". Classes, workshops, outings have that theme. Curiously, "there is an app for that", of all things. Meaning that in order to get away from being online and available, you can spend more time, and money, with the device (initially), if you follow the market on this. Do you? I think there is quite an incommensurability showing. Why not just leave it turned off? Or elsewhere? No app needed then. Is it too difficult to get away from the stimulus-resonse machine in our hands? How do you time electronic device usage?



What is #CheckIn?


It’s a longstanding daily tradition started by Lawrence (LD) Williams on g+. Peeps throughout the world check in to mingle. It’s been likened to what folks do around a water cooler, on a front porch or at a cafe-bar, but online. If pressed for time just wave (like) as you run/fly/swim by. You’ll always be seen and appreciated.

#Checkin is a daily post-thread where regulars and visitors alike come to chat, as the sun travels through all time zones.

When consumer G+'s sun set, the original checkin (hosted by LD) seamlessly reappeared at MeWe. Pluspora’s checkin also began not long after. #CheckIn is a convenient neighbourhood place where regulars and visitors alike know they can go to chat with familiar friends or with friends they haven’t met yet, as the sun travels through all time zones.

Pluspora CheckIn was initially set up by Su Ann Lim with LD Williams’s help. #Newhere? Think of CheckIn as your virtual local corner establishment where you may know, and get to know, many of the regulars. I’m @Carsten Raddatz (劉愷恩), this week’s moderator at the #Checkin community. Starting August 2019, Pluspora #CheckIn is now hosted by a round robin team:

@Carsten Raddatz (劉愷恩) (Germany, GMT+2)
@Cass M (Canada, GMT-6)
@Nathan Weaver (USA, GMT-5)
@Su Ann Lim (Canada, GMT-7)

Welcome to the Tuesday #Checkin for October 1


Simple pleasures today - I took an early morning walk with the holiday dog, nicknamed "fluffnutter" by one of you. :) Friends are on holiday, I’m not. What is a breeze in summer, walkies in the early morning before temperatures go above 30C (85F) outside, is almost equally good in today’s sucky rainy cold #Berlin weather at 9C (<50F) just after 6am. Dog’s happy, so am I. No more than half an hour, simple as that. Back for breakfast at 6:45am.

Dog at hand or not, what is your go to simple pleasure? How do you brighten you day, with a simple task, sight, activity? Or chat? Bring up anything you like, carry over previous discussions to today's post, or just say hi. We love to hear from you!

Welcome to the Monday #Checkin for September 30


Hailing from the Northern hemisphere, where autumn has started, we had ever cooler and wetter weather for days now. I woke up this morning to the steady sound of rain, and my first thought was "now I know where those two rainproof jackets are". So cycling to work left me mostly dry, a podcast in my ears. What was your first thought when you woke up? "Want coffee"? "I'm late"? "Narrrgghffllff...zzzZz..."? Or did a dream blend into the waking up? Or does whatever you thought of when falling asleep seamlessly continue to bother, or amuse you at wakey-wakey time? Tell us, if you might.

(Fwiw my second thought today was "prepare coffee", though sometimes the those incoherent dreams fade slowly and make for hilarious thoughts while preparing breakfast.) I am aware that those proverbial Monday mornings, hated by some, in their being emotionally loaded are likely a function of the proverbial 9-to-5 job world, and possibly a less than ideal job environment. Would you agree? You may or may not be part of that - if you're not, what is waking up for you?

A slight change of scenery today, a different café with artisans working the equipment, and coffee that tickles your senses like good red wine can, with hints of fruit, nuts, a rich body, serving as a fantastic reminder that this day is going to be good to you. Order a pixel drink of choice.

Welcome to the Sunday #CheckIn for September 29


"The change from no libraries to libraries was a much bigger change than from libraries to the Internet". I tend to agree - being able to use those resources is paramount, online or not. The humanist stance is important if you ask me - keep public libraries open, they benefit everyone. We talked spiritual wisdom and centuries of tradition the other day, the short form quote is fine for this short form #checkin café. (Not saying we switch to long form now.) Literature is about people though - the readers, yes, and the authors. They form something new with all that wealth of knowledge, very often in long form.

Speaking of contemporaries^1^, what if we had a Sunday café afternoon for long form talking and listening to important authors, theorists, philosophers, journos, maybe think tank people? Would you go? If you could, whom would you invite? Write a letter to? Which interview or lecture you attended with Idunno, a favourite musician, artist, writer, thinker, spiritual authority did impress you? Or were you appalled by any person's off-the-record, private opinion? What were they like? Or what was fun about the event? What unexpectedly went south? Share your anecdotes if you have them, and want to let us know. Or just take a drink from the bar, and just be there. :)

^1^ That quote above is from an recent , you may have heard of him. Personally I am conflicted: a specific linguistic Chomskyan theory (X-Bar) gave me a hard time at university, the way it was taught was the other tough part about it. Some of his political positions are tough to digest. Either way, there's a great humanist gesture apparent in this and other interviews (and blatant lack of insight on the side of the googley interviewer) - as a contemporary voice I do appreciate he says what he says, he has a tuneful voice.

#neuhier ist ein #Pinguin mit Hut, der bringt euch ein freundliches "Hallo". Dieser #Pinguin mit Hut kommt aus der Informationstechnologie, aber interessiert sich neben IT-bezogenen Themen im Allgemeinen (wie z.B. GNU/Linux, FOSS, Programmierung, Web) auch für gesellschaftliche Themen (Politik, Geschichte, Arbeit/Freizeit, Organisation gesellschaftlicher Strukturen, aber auch zu einem gewissen Grad Wirtschaft), Nachrichten (also was in der Welt gerade passiert (und warum)), Pokémon, konstruktive Diskussionen über das vorher genannte und eigentlich auch alles Schöne, was Aug' und Ohr erfreut.
Magst du nicht Deutsch mit dem #Pinguin reden, so kann er dir noch Englisch und Chinesisch anbieten. Russisch und Französisch gingen sicher auch und Latein bekäme er auch wohl noch hin - falls der Bedarf da sein sollte.

#newhere is a #penguin with hat, he brings you a friendly "hello". This #penguin is an IT guy, but apart from IT related topics in general (such as GNU/Linux, FOSS, programming, Web), he is interested in society (politics, history, work/life, organization of society, but also economy to a certain extend), news (i.e., what is currently happening in the world (and why)), Pokémon, constructive discussions about the aforementioned topics and also everything beautiful that eyes and ears can enjoy.
If you do not like to talk Englisch to this #penguin, he could offer you German and Chinese instead. Russian and French might be an option as well and Latin could be probably managed also - in case this demand exists.

Welcome to the #Caturday #CheckIn for September 28


Resonating with the #7bookcoverchallenge, literature gives us a more subtle kind of travel. You may not physically move much when reading, instead your mind is at sea, in far away fictional or real places. Your nervous system performances, belle et triste, may trigger moods of all kinds. How does it work for you? Those are the most rewarding moments, no? A fictional reality twists itself into real life, shifts perceptions, and next moment you expect to see a story's character coming towards you at the bus stop. Or sit next to you at the cafe. And sometimes the setting becomes an alternate reality, such that parts of it linger on after putting the book down. Or after finishing the novel, the impressions might persist even then, in an inspiring way. That ever happen to you? Tell us about it! Or anything literature on your mind. (Or a book recommendation.)

It being #caturday today, you might expect your feline friend sit on your laptop or keyboard nao, or purr along your legs. Tell us about it, share the pictures or meows!

Welcome to the Friday #CheckIn for September 27


Somewhat in line with yesterday's language centric theme, since today is World Tourism Day (a UN institution) travelling is today's checkin theme. For many of us, travelling does include a strong involvement with language. In recent years, sustainability and environmental consciousness play a bigger role than before - for you too? (Am opening up quite a bag here. Take your pick! And a pixel coffee from the bar.)
When I travel for leisure I do because I long to be somewhere else, as in "have only little clue how things work there" (and heard too little about it before). I'm interested in.. what do people eat? I want some. How do they brew and drink coffee? Or tea? Show me, hand me a cup. An occasional faux pas is sure to be included. What was yours? Do you feel, if the far away place is like home, then why would you need to leave home in the first place? Travelling can be very local, like to the other side of the river, that mountain range, state line or whathaveyou. How is it different? Do take your dogs with you? (It's #fidofriday after all.) Share any favourite travel anecdotes!

Welcome to the Thursday #CheckIn for September 26


Today is a Thursday unlike any other, because its the European Day of Languages day [1]! While that is an EU thing, strictly speaking, I know many of you speak and know a language or two other than English. I for one will be happy to learn about which ones you speak, which you don't but would want to, and why or why not, from the EU or your part of the world. You might be language and culture curious too! Tell us, if you may.
On a related note, it is Love Note day today as well [2], so what better reason is needed to write a tiny post-it sized love letter to that special someone in a meaningful language (as a note on the fridge, or whathaveyou)? Maybe find that loved, or loving quote of a favourite author in its original language? Get a drink from the coffee bar and join us chatting away!

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #age, #antiableism, #books, #common, #diaspora, #newestworldorder, #nonviolentcommunication, #oldschool, #philosophy, #taijiquan-qigong, #ubi, and #universalbasicincome. But above all solving the work functions for universal basic income. At heart I believe a citizen's solution to be a better fix than a point and click lump sum within this burning room we need not name (you're born into it and it is the invention of humans on earth). It like choosing not to let Apple steer the ship of hardware design to store and play music,, but to really contribute to fundamental tools shared across human life to replace the collective effects of our society of consumption and spectacle. I believe in the ratio between universal and basic, that careful attention should be paid to the income we pay to people regardless of their background (universal) and that which we pay those who are transitioning from a system of competition and limited need to one where feeling "the pain of the universe" is one blessing of life. I am happy to be born into it, especially now with all the potential for crisis. Nothing brings a conscious species together like a crisis, oder? First time on "social media" in years, sorry for the novel.

Yup yup and don't be afraid to challenge anyone on their shit, we are all learning at different rates and I've been challenged on my wee wild rants and had to evidence them. Discussion is to a viewpoint as bacteria and virus are to the immune system we get sick then we build antibodies, views are changed by a healthy well educated opposing argument to our own perspective ... if that makes sense?

Hell I'm so #newhere I cant even pgp ... well nearly, i can pidgin/xmpp ish but am gonna read up on the #matrix link. Thanks.
 
.oO( Oh yeah and let's not forget to say, follow the #newhere hastag and occasionally greet new people ... we are a big community over here. ;))

So I've created my own Diaspora* pod. Let's see how this will work out #newhere
 

Welcome to Wednesday Sep 4 #Checkin!


Still at university, I met representatives of a large publishing house. Back then, an encyclopedia like the German Brockhaus was something you also bought for interior design reasons (30 volumes! 24k pages! Your living room will radiate with knowledge!), and this was put forward in the discussion as the reason why the product would continue be strong on the market. Only competitor they took serioulsy was the Encyclopædia Britannica. We students had already understood that online is the next big thing, as it implied access to everything knowledge, and were throwing provocative theses at them. This was in 1999, and the publishers in the discussion of course showed no doubt we must be wrong. chuckles

Twenty years on, Wikipedia dominates the market, is free to access, has been ranking high in web traffic statistics and still is open for everyone to participate. (Never did? Here's how, pick your language.) When did you learn about wikipedia? Do you edit articles, or did you? Is using wikipedia working for you as it did? Isn't it just crazy the thing works at all?

If contributing to the sum of all knowledge hasn't been on your radar yet, maybe indulde in today's "eat an extra dessert day"! (Or order your regular iced or hot drink at the bar, caffeine or not.)



What is #CheckIn?


It’s a longstanding daily tradition started by Lawrence (LD) Williams on g+. Peeps throughout the world check in to mingle. It’s what folks do around a water cooler, on a front porch or at a cafe-bar, but online. If pressed for time, wave (like) as you run/fly/swim by.

#Checkin is a daily post-thread where regulars and visitors alike come to chat, as the sun travels through all time zones.

#Newhere? Think of CheckIn as your virtual local corner establishment where you may know, and get to know, many of the regulars. I’m @Carsten Raddatz (劉愷恩), this week’s moderator at the #Checkin community.

Pluspora CheckIn was initially set up by Su Ann Lim with LD Williams’s help. Starting August 2019, Pluspora #CheckIn is now hosted by a round robin team:

@Carsten Raddatz (劉愷恩) (Germany, GMT+2)
@Cass M (Canada, GMT-6)
@Nathan Weaver (USA, GMT-5)
@Su Ann Lim (Canada, GMT-7)

Welcome to Tuesday Sep 3 #Checkin


Skyscrapers day today. I was lucky to visit two major specimen: the Taipei 101 building, while it still was the world's tallest building, and the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, adding 270m or so in height, a couple of years later. The checkin logo is approx. at the same height the public platform is (not to scale).

On both vistor platforms I had this slightly uneasy moment. When you want get a better view, you need to stand at the glass wall, with just glass between you and the height. Breathe deeply, then its ok (worked for me). Fear of heights? None, hints of it warded off by concentrating, whew.
Have you seen any skyscrapers, radio towers or similar up close? From the ground, do you think they spoil the view? Or add to the cityscape? Have you visited the platform? Seen the city from above? Would you go? Or why not?

Welcome to Monday Sep 2 #Checkin


It's "Bison Ten Yell Day" today! (Hint: Read Bison-Ten-Yell Day out fast and it sounds like bicentennial day). The origins of this unofficial day from what I read are unknown. You want to celebrate, make up a character or happy event and celebrate its bicentennial on this day. So this is very much a freeform #checkin. Post what you celebrate today, if you can, be it Ganesh Chaturthi, Ceuta indepedence, or whathaveyou. Or simply link the weirdest thing you read. (The café theme might still apply if you're still out of ideas on this one.)

WELCOME to Sunday #Checkin for Sep 1


We trodded down hardware memory lanes yesterday, as part of the 1990s when online became a mainstream thing. Similar fashion, more search engines appeared, Which ones did you use then, and why? Think yahoo, lycos, dmoz, altavista, inktomi, askjeeves, hotbot, and whatnot. Long gone are the days of search only - today, escaping the behemoths and their extended tools we find fine niches here and there. How do you search, and why (or why not)?

WELCOME to Saturday #Checkin for Aug 31


Today's topic brings us back to our first going online. For me, that was more than three decades ago, it would have been 1986 or 87, when I connected a dataphon device to my C64 home computer, placed the telephone receiver on it and fearfully dialled as described by the computer magazine at hand. Once online, I was noticed by someone who used the same BBS (?), we had a monosyllabic chat. Quite an exhilarating and scary experience, me being very young at 11 years or so. The procedure lasted no longer than maybe 10 minutes! In the 1990s then did I get my first university email address, and using the Internet became routine. Have been exploring things ever since. What was your first online experience like? How did you get in touch with, erm, the online world, or with people who did? How much have things changed since those days!

WELCOME to Friday #Checkin for Aug 30


QUESTION: Today I ask you to participate in a game of guessing, geoguessing to to speak. We are distributed across timezones, climates, longitudes and local ecosystems, and testing one's knowledge of other parts of the world can be fun! Click here: https://geoguessr.com/ and hit "play for free". (It will display a random scene anywhere on this planet, and you get walk around, streetview-like, and to zoom and click on a map to score higher the closer you guessed to the actual location.) Then post your results here for everyone to giggle.
If that doesn't work well with you, be inspired by that beach on the picture - I'd take a frozen virgin strawberry daiquiri from the beach bar straight away.
