I'm a software developer in the UK, and I've found that it's very rare (maybe 5% of the time) to find an employer that will even consider any working from home
I have not yet had an interview where the employer would not allow any working from home. "Full time" home work (i.e. show up once a week for the meeting) type offers are rare, yes. But I can't remember a single interview where 1 day a week would not be offered.
Perhaps I don't scout as many job interviews as you do, as I am happy with my current job (which doesn't put a limit on my telecommuting, so it ends up with 2-3 days a week, which I find a nice balance). So perhaps I just pick my interviews more carefully?
Execution is heavily overrated too, at least here on
100% perfect exectution usually don't turn a bad idea to a good product, but a great idea, even with flaky execution, can be a commercial success.
I don't call 350EUR (the registering fee of the taxi license, YMMV) "a lot of money".
And by the "indirect" ways of making money, are you implying everyone in the taxi business is corrupt, at least on the regulators' side?
Besides, since the rides compensated are clearly restricted and targeted to the commute traffic, and nobody I know commutes with taxis (do you know such people?), the true victims of this new idea are the suburban busslines that drive around almost empty, because the law mandates the municipalities to provide the service. Why would taxi unions object to that? If anything, they should embrace this new idea of "teaching" people to use taxis more.
I guess I need that map. Why don't you provide it, instead of beating around the bush?
You don't know much about taxi unions or city regulatory agencies, do you?
And neither do I. Even after reading you comment.
We talked about this a few years ago, but the science has come a long way since then
Science doesn't progress at such a pace.
There is absolutely no solid scientific evidence to prove anything of what is posted above . Anthropocentric backpains do not result from chairs, but from the people using them!
 At least you failed to link such a study. Typical alarmist article.
85 of the top 100 websites
So the 15 out of a 100 websites:
-destroy your data upon merger/bankrupsy/...
-don't collect any data about you
The level generator was tested with the original Super Mario? Has it been open sourced?
Or do we finally have an explanation for what sort of twisty brain wrote the "cat mario"/syobon levels?
Strawman; of course we are humans.
But this site's slogan is is news for nerds . What interest do nerds have of news about marriage rites?
And I don't mean the hipster neo-nerds who actually might grok sex or relationships. Not this site, no sirree. This site looks like it was designed in the 1990's. The upgrade to something looking like it was designed in the previous decade was shouted down. This is the last bastion of the honest-to-$DEITY, assembly-writing, coke-drinking, beer-bottle-bottom-spectacled elite.
I for one find people's preference in $EDITOR infinately more important and fascinating than their private social life (or, goes without saying, sexual preferences).
Sampling a few of the device's in your link, GP's claim that the devices can't be bought still seems to hold true, mostly.
For example, of the devices on the first page you link to:
Can't ship out of the US:
-Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311-T1UU
-Acer Chromebook 13 CB5-311-T7NN
-NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet
-EVGA Tegra Note 7
-Nabi Big Tab (24")
Can be bought:
-NVIDIA SHIELD Portable
-Google Nexus 9
-HP Chromebook 14 G3
No wonder nVidia can't sell them, if people cannot buy them... I wonder if there is something in the Tegra itself that causes this, or if the link provided was just a happy coincidence to confirm GP's gut feel.
. "I think in general we haven't done enough to reach out and show young women that it's cool to do it [tech] and how much fun it can be,"
Do "we" reach out for the young men?
Nobody ever "reached out" for me, yet here I am. Have I just been living under a rock?
I know if everything were still under wraps the spying might not have cost tech companies anything in lost sales, but it seems unfair to suggest that Snowden is partly responsible
Everyone knew about the spying even before Snowdens leaks. Spies spy. This is not news. With the patriotism that seems to plague the USA, it is not a big stretch of the imagination to see how the secret police influences the industry. Closed source can't easily be audited, and every engineer knows how easy it is to hide backdoors in gadgets. Comms equipment standards (public, international ones) even mandate "lawful intercept" capabilities. Why would the secret police not utilize these, in secret? That they do it was not surprising, only the sheer volume and spectrum of what NSA can do was news.
What really is causing the shit to hit the fan - internationally - is not the spying. Its not even the proof Snowden showed that it is happening. Its the reaction from the press and politicians in the USA. The knee-jerk reaction was to say "but we don't spy on americans". I'm sure this sort of thinking is common in the USA, but it usually don't hit international news headlines.
Many people still thought of USA as "us", not "them", before this uproar. But piss on your customers, and they might want to go elsewhere.
Sure, Snowden's whistleblowing was as important in the causal chain to this perceived loss to the US industry. But so was NSA doing the spying in the fist place. Neither of them are to blame for the losses, though.
That can't be it, I've never heard of any of the USA presidents until they became presidents.
Except Geroge Bush, of course. And I hear that if the Democrats win this time, its going to be Clinton again.
the Debian developers and the security research community advised everyone who was possibly affected at the time to regenerate their keys.
However, it seems that a lot of people didn't listen and those weak keys are still used today
Didn't listen? How about that for a elitistic attitude! This is the main problem and cause for computer insecurities. I would give long odds that the number of people who both herad AND understood the warning, yet failed to take action can be counted with your fingers without even using base-2.
We end-users need to be spoon-fed (force-fed) the security. The correct action here would have been for (e.g. Github) to revoke these sort of keys already back then. Because while it is unreasonable to expect all end-users to take action, it is reasonable to expect (e.g. Github) to have a security professional to be alert and make that descision for us.
Well, better late than never, and slip-ups happen sometimes. Lets hope there wasn't too much damage.
Personally though, I hate both your attitudes because your emotions and politics get in the way of rational, logical evolution of the science behind the issue.
I sort of agree, but then, do we have time to wait for the 'logical evolution of the science'? Most science is done by making observations that prove hypotheses. In this case there is a slight problem with this way of making science. Once the observations are indisputable, its a bit too late to change things.
That is why I back 100% the hypothesis that leads the human race to clean up their act and (I hope) create technology that ultimately leads to a Star Trek sort of socialist utopia.
Even if it costs current-day industrialists their last million in bonuses.
