If companies were up-front about WHY they have the demographics they do -- society does provide female and minority candidates -- it might provide impetuous for change. Hiding reality rarely, if ever, improves anything.
Yes, but in 20 years, we'll have graphics cards that can run 8k monitors at reasonable speed, and software that scales properly. The screen doesn't exist in a vacuum, and right now, even 4k screens at 15.6 inches are performance dogs. And think how ridiculous the price for an 8k monitor will be...
A spinal injury rendered my primary right hand useless. So I write (250k words this year) and code (30k lines C++/C#/Python) using a Logitech Wireless Touchpad and a compact tablet-style keyboard on my PC.

Which language to choose depends on the task at hand, not arbitrary religion. I was using C++ when it was "C with classes", wrote books and articles about it -- and my answer is to use the tool best suited to a given task and target platform. I've used Objective C when it fits my goal.
I dislike questions asked only to invent false reasons for making a choice.
It is surprising that the best article on KCG's trades was not shared yet. Check out http://www.nanex.net/aqck2/3522.html for a fascinating look at the trades. Chart 3 shows a millisecond interval chart with around 40 trades happening in under a second, each buying at the offer and immediately selling at the bid. As Nanex put it "you now have a system that's very efficient at burning money".
