+ - IEEE Spectrum Ranks The Top Programming Languages->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Working with computational journalist Nick Diakopoulos, we at IEEE Spectrum have published an app that ranks the popularity of dozens of programming languages. Because different fields have different interests (what's popular with programmers writing embedded code versus what's hot with web developers isn't going to be identical) we tried to make the ranking system as transparent as possible—you can use our presets or you can go in and create your own customized ranking by adjusting the individual weightings of the various data sources we mined.--Stephen "FTC obDisclosure" Cass."

I'll tell you where to start.

Years back, teen pregnancy was very rare. A handful in a state.

Bullshit. It was prolific. Were you born last year?

I know, I was poor. I was unemployed and the 'case workers' at the unemployment office actually told me NOT to look for work and they would 'take care of me.

This stinks as much as the rest of your story. Again, I call bullshit.

Facebook explicitly says they do not allow you to delete your account.

"If you don't think you'll use Facebook again, you can request to have your account permanently deleted. Please keep in mind that you won't be able to reactivate your account or retrieve anything you've added."

Deactivation != Deletion

Why a lack of anonymity is a nightmare to you? Is it because you don't live in a free country and the only way you can express your ideas without going to jail afterward is with anonymity?

Because the idea of someone *else* making money by selling *my* personal data is abhorrent?
If I'm going to sell my emails (etc) at least I should get the money.
