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!

True. Even when you think you turn off "privacy stealing", it still sends your info to the cloud and that is reported automatically to MSFT. It's in the cloud terms, so you can't find it.

Even Enterprise is leaky. You have to run in private cloud (internal net storage) mode to avoid privacy leakage.

The reason computer chips are so small is computers don't eat much.
