If the task is something where IT can do that kind of testing, it's probably something that has been or should be fully automated. The rest of the things people do vary from day to day and IT won't have foreseen the users need. Often the needs are in flux.
Not the user's job to try to do things better... Depends on the user. Not all users are doing the same thing over and over. Users might be doing things for the first time, and nobody has foreseen their needs.
Not all employees are assembly line workers. Often there are ad-hoc / one off tasks that nobody has foreseen because nobody understands the need like a user. ( maybe nobody even knows of the need but that one user who needs to do something. )
Overly restrictive policies make it impossible to do things better.
Remember computers are for users, not their admin staff. Locking users out of their machines turns them into paperweights.
What if a user wants to do their job better and is searching the internet for a better tool? They find it and install it.
Except they can't because their machine was locked down.
But how is this going to make Google forget anything? It's so easy to use a proxy to get out of Europe and search Google from the US. It's just a Chinese Fire Drill.
Thought of another cool name: Petunia
As in the Bowl of Petunias from Hitchhikers Guide: "Oh no.. Not again!"
We're basically another meatbag like lions and hyenas or apes or whatever noodling around. And humans have been to the moon.
Being outwardly violent does not always inflict the maximum violence, and usually the most underhanded thing to do is socially acceptable.
Communism is for families. and anarchy is always the state of affairs no matter what the regime.
It's because the market takes care of the punishment for the privacy loss without 'Fighters for Privacy' getting involved. Nobody is going to trust Ashley Madison again for a long time if ever.
The niche doesn't much exist in rural Africa. It does exist in Silicon Valley. Not sure what you mean by a fixed zero sum niche - I never said anything was fixed. Even the carrying capacity of the Earth can change as environments are degraded.
. I make [stuff] because others exploited the opportunities of [stuff[
You fill your niche, but the niches filled by others denies your offspring the chance to someday fill them.
If opportunity is your bag, you want to be Adam or Eve.
And while almost nothing has been fully explored, the Earth is one of those things that has been.
Most people don't want to bring salaries down to below the median income, because the effect of that is merely to lower the median income...
Most people want to bring salaries to above the median, so as to raise the median income.
I'm an animal. I live like that.
Everything on a finite ball of Earth that has been fully explored is zero sum. Opportunity is zero sum.
I have been and always will be a small l libertarian, but I am fed up with Rothbardian capital L Libertarians. Non aggression principle/Non-initiation of force is the axiom their whole ideology is built on, and it's wrong. Life is lions and hyenas on the Discovery channel.
You can tear apart these people in a debate like so much paper if you don't buy into NAP.
Property IS theft AND there's nothing wrong with theft.
It blows their minds.
If I have not seen so far it is because I stood in giant's footsteps.
