Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
If I had to guess its because Microsoft isn't just pursuing change for its own sake here. It's icons. On new modern seriously high DPI screens. I think they're trying to future proof themselves.
Actually it's a little too moist in there, seeing as how the human body is comprised of a lot of water.
Not unless you've got a life proof case, of course.
"Make me a sandwich" is/was a common meme that guys would tell women on the internet. Often requests and/or demands for sexual acts were also made.
It's semistreaming. It buffers video, sure, but the buffer is blown out.
Your use case for YouTube reminds me of RMS browsing the web via email
For example, I don't need a 3 year backlog of the Vlogbrothers stuff. I simply don't. I'd rather just watch them via YouTube. It's impractical to keep a backlog of videos I'll watch maybe once or twice.
This I kind of agree with.
However, I think it's worth investing the money to educate teachers, parents and anyone else who will shape a kid's life about the subtle nuance of sexism in our culture. I think it's worth doing it at any level. Even though it'd be way more effective at primary school levels.
I actually do agree that more straight men need to get into fashion. Because the idea that straight cisgender men are just more likely to not get into fashion by the nature of their being is offensive. Women are being actively discouraged against being into STEM at young ages in a variety of ways. Some are really subtle but do have a disproportionally larger effect than you'd think.
How brave of you, rushing to defend the status quo with uninformed opinions.
If you remove identifying information from resumes before they get to hiring managers, diversity goes *up*. Which means that we haven't been hiring the best and the brightest. We've been hiring those who are similar to us. There are many hiring and HR practices that when changed, do improve diversity.
Not just that, but as Neil de Grasse Tyson said about being black and in STEM, who was left behind? Who was told, "No don't focus on STEM, go play sports go do something else, you're black, STEM's not for you." So all of the money being invested in education is also going to mean is to try to stop the meme that, "you're a girl you shouldn't get into STEM. Go into arts or history or become a homemaker."
To suggest that the current status quo is acceptable is ignorant, if not dangerous.
Double agree, and out of mod points.
Furthermore, the awfulness of review scores has been exacerbated by some publishers relying on Metacritic scores to determine bonus payouts to developers.
So I'm glad this is becoming a trend. I hope this extends out to movies. x stars out of y still doesn't tell me if I should go see it on opening night or wait for DVD
Yeah but the Fn key is right next to ctrl, alt and windows/command on a macbook and most other decently designed notebooks.
Having to press an additional key beats having a cramped keyboard.
Given how many people have given when asked, it's less, "tragedy of the commons" and more "tragedy for not asking" which is understandable. In the west we think it's bad taste to ask for money. Even if there's some output in return some people consider it begging.
Stalking laws and harassment are incredibly difficult to enforce and a lot of police departments do not have the capacity to handle these problems.
Besides, legality aside, I'd rather know that Twitter was also doing something about abusive shitty behavior on their service than not. Free speech is a constitutionally protected right, but Twitter's not obliged to give bigots and assholes a platform to spew their shit.
I was at a Welcome to Nightvale show.
What I would've done for a camera with a zoom lens, you have no idea.
So you're all of baph? I thought baph was supposed to be a diverse group of people. I've heard of insulated communities but just on person... Wow.
I know that Zoe Quinn linked to a publicly discussed and passed around article that the head of TFYC claimed as, "Doxxing", Randi Harper has no qualms with outing people associated publicly on Facebook and Twitter who directly use their real names to the public, Anita Sarkeesian will republish abusive tweets and emails with no identifying information redacted.
But that's not to say that the anti-GG side "doxxes" more than GGers do. show me the anti-GG
Not all doxxing is equal and pretending like it is shows how craven and intellectually dishonest GG is.
