The problem with that is that "better" means what? Better managed? No, better sales and marketing. And they don't get that from education. It isn't data-driven, it is sales-personality driven. That is the dealership market. This isn't theory.
I love the way you ask a question I already answered, speculate as to the answer as if it is unknown... and then quote it! Yeah, you're engaging in an intellectually honest exchange... NOT.
If people aren't motivated they're not going to use it anyways. This idea that an education factory can produce results in children is what steals attention and resources away from the kids who are motivated to learn.
Kids who aren't motivated should have more attention paid to teaching them to get along, to play nice, to learn multiple trades, etc.
Yeah, my brother "can read," but barely. He can indeed read road signs, so "basic" literacy is very, very valuable. But technical information, even in his own field, would glass over his eyes in 10 seconds. Anything important, like a letter from the DMV, he'll have to have somebody explain it to him, even though it is already dumbed down.
He graduated high school with average grades, too.
Many people who are used to being the smartest person in the room say that they feel stupid when talking to Bill Gates.
There are multiple possible explanations for that. One is the obvious one, that he is some sort of super-genius. Another is that they believe he is, but what he is saying sounds crazy, so they resolve that conflict deferentially by assuming it is going over their head.
If you're convinced the crazy guy under the bridge is a great poet, you'll likely find deep meaning in his rantings.
Gates' book is very good, and has important insights. He might be as smart as they say. But your argument is whack.
The main use case is not for private data. Private data is likely to fit into their free plan. This is for businesses who are using google services already, and want to share a lot of data "in the cloud."
I agree. Feature thrash sent me from fanboy to "slowly migrating away, one service at a time."
Citation needed. Management skills help, but talk to former employees; many of these dealerships are publicly documented as having awful management practices, even to the point of being hostile towards employees. If sales is strong, the margins are high, and since they are run by single dictatorial owners, there is no feedback or oversight. They can simply be horrid managers and still be on top.
It went right over your head. Look at what you're asking me to address, and then click/scroll back to my actual comment. And you'll see I'm not addressing the "difficulty" of going to management, precisely because I'm advocating NOT doing that, and instead complaining to OVERSIGHT, which is Congress. And has none of that difficulty.
And it is certainly not "career suicide" in comparison to leaking to the press and being a wanted fugitive sheltering in Neo-Soviet Russia.
Ellsberg is an American Hero, but that doesn't make him the moderator of heros or of leaking.
Lots of us are still saying, "Snowden is no Ellsberg." And no, Ellsberg isn't going to change my mind on that. Why not? Because Ellsberg isn't a demi-god. He's a hero because of the actions he took in the past. His actual statement just sounds like he is a older and more cynical now. Probably values his freedom more now, after having nearly lost it and having a rich life to reflect on that, than he did when he was young and motivated by Principle.
Asking for publicly searchable "security questions" to be typed in again doesn't help idiots. And often the security questions themselves give a menu where a particular person might not have any non-searchable but memorable answers to give.
Same as why their are so many weird laws protecting local agriculture in certain areas. For example, in Washington State the "Apple Lobby" (actual apple growers, not the computer company from CA) has a lot of power that leads to obnoxious local laws. They have lots of money, but little education. And certainly no sense of value in a liberal arts education. In tech it is a guarantee that the owners of a company are either educated, value education, or pretend to. And in most fields this is true. In the apple business, whoever inherited the best land makes the most money. That's just the way it is. It doesn't matter if you're educated or not; your farm manager went to the same ag school regardless of if the owner has any education.
Car dealerships are very similar. The best car salesman can open a small lot of his own, and grow it into a local giant, become one of the wealthy people in their area. It requires no education, and once they've built it, education would be pointless to them. So they will have a somewhat predictable basket of political views, and a predictable pattern of appealing to the local backroom power structures for support.
Chicago is only a city, so that doesn't really count. It should be obvious that the most corrupt place in NJ would be much more corrupt than Chicago, otherwise the State would be less corrupt than IL. But it isn't.
You don't good luck for a court order. You just need the order.
You've still never seen The Godfather?! O M F G
He does favors so people will owe him something. For example, the bitcoins of theirs he just stole. How can he steal all their bitcoins if some smaller exchange sours them cryptocurrency? No, he can pay it for them, out of the goodness of his heart, and his love for the crypto neighborhood.
