Comment Boomers drive the market (Score 1) 166

They have the numbers, they have millions individually in disposable income, and they don't need your stinking apps that younger more gullible cell users get taken in by.

Adapt. Because the wave is coming, and it cares nothing for your workplace-driven chrome sensibilities. It's all about Tiny Houses, solar/wind off the grid, doing fun things, and not paying The Man for stuff you don't want and don't need.

Who said it was a free market? The barriers to entry in capital formation are fairly steep for women.

I see you think you live in a democracy, when you actually live in an oligarchic republic, and that everyone else has ease of access to capital markets.

How precious.

Here at the UW there are a lot of women engineers, mathematicians, data scientists, biochemists, and computer scientists.

The main problem is that a lot of firms talk about diversity, but aren't great on actually hiring women in tech. And when they get hired, getting shunted into more "traditional" roles, like being asked to cover the phones or front desk (as a female) when the male interns aren't asked to do that.

Fix that. Hire first, treat equally, and fix the top levels too. If your board room is male only, or tokenized, you're doing it wrong.

My point is that you're arguing about capacity amounts that are a very small fraction of what we can deliver. All at prices that are 20 to 100 times what other first world nations pay for them.

Probably because they have competition. You know, capitalism. Oh darn those socialist countries with their capitalist wiles!
