Submission + - H1-B bill introduced after Bill Gates Testimony->

br00tus writes: "A day after Bill Gates's testimony before congress on Wednesday on this subject, a bill was introduced to double the number of H1-B visas for the United States. The Washington Post quotes former IEEE-USA commitee head Ron Hira saying "No matter how one dresses up this bill, it would do nothing to curb the practice of companies bringing in computer programmers for $12 per hour to displace U.S. workers", a sentiment shared by university studies of the H1-B visa."

Submission + - Google - Making Money without Doing Evil?

br00tus writes: Until very recently, you could connect to Google China from the US. Activists used to point out how searches about topics like Tiananmen Square protests on Google China resulted in only results from Chinese state-owned media. Very recently, Google China began redirecting to www.google.com. You can still connect to Google Japan, Google France etc. however. Why is China suddenly the only country we can't see Google's search engine for?

In a five year period we can get one superb programming language. Only we can't control when the five year period will begin.
