4. Stop making exploding offers in the first place, because hires will just accept immediately and keep interviewing for better offers anyway.
>Imagine being a police officer risking your life every single day. Knowing that the next person you stop might try to do his/her best to kill you. While also knowing that any mistake you make will be headline news around the world. It’s an impossible situation.
Defender problem. Just like how pen testers are insufferably smug that throwing random input at your endpoint causes unexpected problems. Nevermind that building secure endpoints is harder than building random fuzzers.
How many of those lives are over 80 years of age and will die anyway in the next 5 years? (the vast majority) Was it really worth collapsing the global economy for a group of people who require the most medical expenditures, nursing care, and welfare spending? If you're one of those 80+ already in poor health with other co-morbidities, did you really want to see your children and grandchildren suffer, just so you can ride out a couple more years in a nursing home bed and make a few vaccine manufacturers really really rich?
I don't think they're being mean, they just aren't tech literate enough to know the difference between good and great. Which is why I see people job hop for a while, only to try their luck at a start up where they can get in on the ground floor and become the CTO or vice president of something. I guess once they're in that club, they try to job hop again into bigger and better companies.
>Find the smartest technologist
How would a company do this when they are run by tech illiterates? They don't know what they don't know. What I see from one company to the next is the smartest passed over for somewhat smart people who have seniority.
Or 5 parallel construction, which is just 2, but they blame 4 :)
Interesting to me is
1) How the article focuses entirely on fossil fuel consumption rather than something much more damaging, like housing
2) The author's key takeaway is this is great and we should use it to manipulate people into consuming less fossil fuels by making their usage punishingly expensive.
In particular, 1) is a societal wrecking ball, because no home means no stable environment to raise children, means more trouble in the pipeline for the next generation. Many people in the generation won't even have children and others will have fewer than replacement rate. 2) makes me think the same sort of people are behind the housing crisis. They believe in overpopulation and therefore they want to curtail it by making housing punishingly expensive.
>Nameless engineer receives big offer! Source: Trust me bro.
Seems like an ad by the FAANG HR depts to me.
>@TeamBlind, career counseling
Oh, exactly that.
>So far, it’s been nothing but pollution, speculation, theft, and crime.
I agree with the sentiment, but I don't believe they ever claimed to solve these things. All the same problems exist with other forms of money. As far as I can tell, crypto is just money with more steps.
Addresses are not secret. Printing the name with the address might seem like a privacy faux pas, but in actuality it's a mailing faux pas. If USPS knows you don't live there anymore, they return to sender. That's a lot of expensive postcards going around for nothing. If however, it is addressed to "current resident" it's not a problem.
The story seems like trying to make lemons into lemonade. "Well, we wasted money, but maybe we can get a bit of privacy protecting glow from this cock-up anyway."
Article is May 2021, when Biden's vax mandates were just starting full swing. Your link is a year later when companies realized what a gigantic mistake they had made. https://www.nbcnews.com/business/business-news/here-are-comp...
Well, it seems like a good time to start migrating away from GitHub. When they can't be bothered to remove malware accounts like the node-ipc dudebro, but then claim they need a phone number from me to keep logged in for "security" ... I'll just leave. It's been a good run, I've had the account over 10 years, but I recently discovered Gitea is API compatible with GitHub. I can just make that my drop in replacement. I can even allow federated login with Keycloak + Gitea OIDC for anyone on GitHub who wants to log in on it and collaborate.
Thanks for all the fish.
>I expressed an opinion/assessment about how courts handle the topic.
Sure, but the courts are the government too. Which boils down to
>The government has decided the government should have more power over you.
>I'm altering the deal, pray I don't alter it any further.
To me that sounds a bit like
>It's not rape if you consent to sex but I slip off the condom when you aren't looking.
If the government is explicitly not allowed to collect this data, then buying it is simply a different form of data collection.
>and a terrifying demonstration that we need to grow the hell up with respect to data privacy
Once again, "conspiracy theorists" were right. I'm beginning to think the governments of the world are reading them for ideas.
>The fact that we don't have a standardized way of blessing data with varying known levels of privacy, checked and enforced by law, is kind of ridiculous in 2022.
Sure, and then as soon as that happens, someone who has patented/copyrighted the process coincidentally is handed a government mandated empire worth millions in licensing fees. Look into ICD-10 codes if you need an example. It's the classic college professor scam where they write the textbook and force everyone to buy it.
>It shouldn't be up to the CDC to act counter to their mission.
If CDC can't do the job without violating 4th amendment, it shouldn't exist. It's not a "private company" and the bill of rights exists for a good reason.
I can advertise for a "React developer" and find people familiar with react rendering. I will never be able to do that with in-house render solution. This will apply to whatever replaces react as well.
Unless I'm selling a render solution, I don't want to be maintaining a render solution. Maintaining glue code might suck, but writing everything from scratch limits the scale of the work that a person can accomplish. I liken it to polishing gears rather than driving the car.
I don't care if he makes money. The important part of GP's post was,
>they explicitly supported the attempt to eject him from the Free Software Foundation on the basis of trumped up allegations
>So why is this?
Probably because you're not modeling the same thing. The workers in the article are independent tasks. No communication between the two needs to be done. Employees have to communicate as a team. It worsens as you add more employees. 2 employees, 1 line of communication between them, but 3 employees and it becomes 3 lines. 4 becomes 6 lines. 5 employees becomes 10 lines. At this point you're having meetings, which everyone knows is the opposite of doing work.
