That was a very well thought out, informative and insightful post. Indeed there are benefits and drawbacks to each approach, and clearly a mixture of the two is better than either separately, at least for you and people such as yourself (a category in which I include myself.) I think any anecdotal argument will favor the presenter in this case, as there as are many people who function well independently, and many otehrs who benefit from structure and don't function well without it being imposed from external sources. Or in terms of a car analogy: YMMV ! :-)

"Heavens forbid that the best candidates are picked! Oh the horror!"

Evidently you aren't particularly bright. Only 1 women was hired for 1,231 men. That is indisputable Prima Facia evidence that picking the best candidate is exactly what couldn't possibly have happened, your absurd implication that all women are incompetent not withstanding..

"is something else picking them off earlier in the production chain such that Facebook's hiring is simply an accurate representation of the candidates it has to work with?'"

You are kidding right? Do you really question if it might be true that only 1 in 1,231 candidates would be qualified women? Seriously?
