Depends on the part of the country. Seattle it's very, very rare to see a developer smoking. Raleigh, more common.
I found outsourcing to be very positive. Watch China mess it up and then they appreciate the work we do all the more.
I tired playing LOL for a while. I liked the game, but I couldn't stand the community. Every game I played featured someone who was crying that someone else took thier character or someone didn't know how to play. Anyone who thinks this is just players having an "off day" is delusional.
My brother committed suicide and its was 2 weeks and tons of emails to get his Facebook page removed.

It's kind of different out here. Back in Detroit for interviews, I was normally put in front of a computer and asked to write code. Pretty practical, and I did well. For whatever reason, out here everyone loves the whiteboard, run though a binary tree on a whiteboard, wtf does that have to do what what you are actually going to be doing? Nothing, but Google, Amazon and MS all have you do it, so everyone else copies it. Hard to put you on the spot like that over the phone. Also your timing isn't the best, right before X-mas holidays. PS Why doesn't slashdot like paragraphs?
Its rare we get female candidates. White female candidates, never.
Banks do the exact same crap which is why we are in this mess.
You always have to kiss their butts to do anything. 1/2 the time they are in the server room playing WOW.
