Questions  - 
 
I have had different feedback about this - but is there a good way a westerner could start to learn the basics in order to 'become' a Hindu? I love the stories, the writings, and I relate very strongly to Brahman/Atman. I am looking for ways to begin to bring some practices into my life but there is an over abundance of information online and I have no one around me that I can ask .

Sometime last year I saw a stunning picture of The Lanes on twitter and I had to visit. What greeted me was breathtaking. It's not just rows of shops waiting for customers, it's a seaside town wait...

Remembering Ilya Zhitomirskiy today. ( http://fortune.com/2013/03/26/life-death-and-free-culture-in-the-mission/ ) He was part of a team that brought us what we call Diaspora. I joined about 4.5 years ago and 4 years ago today we found out he had taken his own life. He was young - they all were young, taking on this endeavour. --- people say that Diaspora failed. It did not. I use it daily. It is a busy, active site that has evolved but is still a fully community run, privacy aware open sourced project.  No, it did not kill facebook. Nothing seems able to do that, but it brought us a choice, and something different. The ONLY truly different Social Network available. Ever thankful to Ilya and to the rest of the crew Maxwell Salzberg, Raphael Sofaer, and Daniel Grippi who have since handed Diaspora over to us, to the community...  Thanks guys, and RIP Ilya . One day we will beat the dragons. #diaspora +Diaspora +DIASPORA*

I think tsu has received a non deserved bad rap. Although it does 'pay' people for original content, it is not a place to get rich by any means - however, the intent is that by giving back to users who post original content some of the money earned from advertising , users will post MORE original content and less reshares or downloaded internet memes. Yes there are some spam bot sorts who dont seem to get it and who think that posting 'nice' on any image or by resharing some copyrighted image from google that they will make revenue -- NO. Tsu is a platform that wants people to post thoughts, ideas, images etc that THEY created, and to have meaningful dialogue regarding the items posted.

So, yes you run into the people who cant seem to read the repeatedly reminded 'be authentic, be original', but eventually they will be weeded out as they realize they joined for the wrong reasons. Have seen some great artwork and there are a few musicians I like that I am following -- really I'm just one of those weird sorts who likes to try out new networks. So, if you'd like to give it a try, I THINK if you click the link below it should let you - if not, message me and I will send you an invite.

hah! I really did chuckle over this one.
Usually Starbucks incorporates a wide variety of anti-Christian imagery onto their winter holiday-themed cups, but this year the Seattle coffee company has completely capitulated to the growing pressure from right-wing fundamentalist Christian groups to "put the... #christianity #christmas #holiday

It was very tongue in cheek - for anyone reading the title only, the author did not really think the cups were Christian Propaganda (for what it is worth, although I am pagan I have many dear friends who are Christian - as well as family who  is Jewish - so really I am pretty open to most things :)
