Replying to @Comrade_Otoa

I wanted to book a holiday place last Christmas for my Prof in Queen Elizabeth NP. Contacted a popular Hotel that is highly advertised, 😎 up to now, I have never recovered from the embarrassment.
I wanted some 6-10Acres of land around kiyunga mukono and visited some prominent property master that is always advertised on some TV station. Man what I can tell you Ugandans need to invest alot in their workplaces. Some offices and work places are not even worth to...

I had the honour of interacting with Aaron once. It was brief exchange through messages nothing personal, but I think of him often and thankful for how he opened the internet up for me. Every time you open a free PDF online to get your next hot take it’s thanks to men like him.

Enabling access to knowledge was one of his main goals in life, as confirmed by many projects he undertook: He and his colleagues started a digital library in 2007 openlibrary.org with the goal of becoming an open catalogue of all works that have ever been published.

As long as there is no uniform definition of the idea of success, there can never be a standard measure of it. Of course the advent of capitalism overlapping as political & economic ideology skewed the global perspective of life and it's elements including the view of success
