[nonostantement #177] - sikh free food / online iraqi women / chinese content farms
NOW with MORE chinese workers manufacturing products!
Welcome to nonostantement: a weekly newsletter with legitimate, confusing and romantic stuff found all over the Internet.
Hi everyone, my name is Joele, I live in Barcelona and I work managing online presence of brands, companies and institutions. While I'm on the Internet I find interesting things that I then send to my friends every Sunday with this same email.
[Video] I am always fascinated by Sikh religion and their precepts. I also have a certain passion for complex organizations. So, how can I not be impressed by The Largest Free Kitchen in the World, India's Golden Temple, Which Serves 100,000 Free Meals Per Day?
After the obvious explosion of 2020, video streaming services are seeing some cooling in the numbers. User fatigue or simple market normalization?
Because of the work I do, I am obviously very interested in how people (as groups, tribes, or individuals) live online. I must admit that the invasion of a certain mainstream culture we just witnessed during last year… has tired me a little. I therefore find it quite exciting to read about how the Internet it is used by people who do not have the same privileges as we do: Three Iraqi women explain how and why they stay anonymous online.
How workers manufacturing products like aloe jelly and gardening gloves also became the influencers selling them. The Chinese content farms behind Factory TikTok.
