I think you've put your finger on an underserved market - clandestine growbots that can be sent out to tend your crop in national forests while maintaining plausible denialblitiy.
Anti-aircraft-drone drones. Drive-by killbots for defending your territory. And pusherbots. And if you expand into related industries, pimpbots.

Like Syndicate LARP. With robots.
You know, for the kids.

I lean on the side of it being perfectly ok to hate people for their attributes, regardless of whether they can change them or not, regardless of whether they are willing to change them or not. And that it is why I have no problem fucking over the anti-gay ideologues and I laugh at your precious concern for their freedom of "conscience". I don't give the slightest fuck about your religious beliefs, your oh-so-logical arguments, or the cultural norms you grew up with. There is no sane defense for that nonsense, it's as irrational as racism and as stupid as astrology. If you side with anti-gay bigots, there's really no way around it, you're basically a cunt.

But the hypocrisy, you cry! Don't you remember the parable of the Nazis? After they came for the bigots, there was no one left to speak for me! I need the bigots to speak for me!

Hating gay people doesn't make you a protected class. It is our choice to hate those people who believe that our hate of their hate should make them a protected class. The difference between us and the bigots is that history is never going to decide that hating bigots is a horrifically immoral crime, you know, like every over thing the bigots once supported. But go ahead, liken us to Jim Crow and the Red Scare, it's hilarious. I hope they all end up unemployable like the child molesters who live under bridges. If we could start a blacklist to hasten that outcome, I'd be snitching on them like Reagan.

The work involved in telling computers what to do is markedly different than it was even five years ago, and it's quite possible that any Rip Van Winkle-like developer who slept through the past 10 years would be unable to function in the today's computing world.

This is quite possibly the stupidest article ever posted to Slashdot.

Ok, this month.

If you have to ask how much it is, you can't afford it.
