Okay, I'll bite. Do you really think he has amassed all his wealth through dumb fucking luck? Or all VCs for that matter?

Agreed. But it would be interesting to find out how they came up with 9x3000 + the leftover. Do they try to limit dividing divisible property to 10 blocks?
Really? It's a filtering mechanism based on some assumptions as to what the final bids will be. I don't see anything anti-democratic about it. As Rick Masters said:
That's a feature, not a bug
I'm assuming that there will be no active investigation of GitHub unless Horvath files a lawsuit. To me, I'm curious about the liability of the company because of TPW's wife's actions (IF TRUE). From :
"She says that the wife of the founder continued to show up at the office, sit next to her and “glare” at her for extended periods of time “as if trying to provoke a reaction.”
"HR eventually asked the wife to not be on the same floor as Horvath. But according to Horvath’s recount, “she continued to find her way in and plant herself right next to wherever I was working.” This continued until her exit from the firm this past Thursday."
Private conversations are going to come down to she-said-she-said, but what about this psycho behavior? GitHub has to be at fault for SOMETHING here...
Actually, I was thinking the opposite:
If I were NOT him, how could I parlay this into something worth my while? Grant an exclusive interview for $100k stating beforehand that I am NOT him so there are no misconceptions? Pose in Playgirl? What? He might as well try to turn lemons into lemonade...

Talk about the Dept of Redundancy Dept. Tell us how you really feel
I often type in and drive to strip clubs and card rooms just to throw the NSA off since those searches are in complete contradiction of my choir boy profile.
"We" voted for her because the alternative was...well...less savory. You can be sure that her support of NSA will be an issue the next time she comes up for re-election, and hopefully, a real Democrat challenger will emerge. But know this--if she withstands the challenge, "we" will be hard-pressed to vote for her Republican challenger...
Does that answer your rocks-glass-houses question?
But you haven't addressed the GP's hardware statement...
Except when it's a matter of national security...they they are not public property...so they are private...so that's that.
I have to admit that when I first heard about the crash, Gladwell's work came to my mind concerning Korean aviation culture. This train of thought was repeated over and over again on Twitter. This article talks about the past and present Korean aviation culture with respect to safety, and I think the writer is objective and reputable.
Yes, agreed. As per my other comments on comments, how about "best practices" instead of "standard?"
