Yes, I love my job.
And you might not like the answer:
It all depends on what everyone else is doing. If more than 50% are changing lanes then you don't win if you change lanes but you do if you're in the minority. This mirrors many of the results in game theory where a selfish strategy works well, but only if it is the minority strategy. Given most drivers stick in a lane then swapping is probably a good choice — unless this news gets out."

I work on an Agile team that because they are agile they believe they can change things, requirements & focus every two weeks. Plus, anyone that says waterfall doesn't work is ignoring ALL *critical* software we depend on. Do you think airplane control systems are developed using agile? Bankin systems? Stock exchange? Power grid... your OS for fuck sake (be it linux, MacOS or the other one).. none of them were fully developed using Agile.
Agile ADDs a lot of good stuff on top of waterfall and is more transparent and flaws/problems become apparent earlier - that's all. It doesn't solve *the problem of sw development*.
I bet you that in 10 years there'll be another *agile* with a different name and book that will promise that THEY are solving the problems. Smart people take agile and try to make it better, dumb people follow it like religion (and like any religious one, they sin).
Come on, don't tell me they didn't had time for it. They are a big company and should watch what they release.

Maybe Boston Dynamics is just taking a piss out of DARPA.
In a video that uses Silverlight...
for lunch at a scenic spot in the Alps?
TFA convinced me.
Btw, it's way better than this bastardized "google earth inside the browser".
Nothing new here..
It's not that simple. If it was that simple the "mafias/organized crime" would dominate this "for profit". If you really don't acknowledge that some of this kids work HARD and are indeed quite skilled than I'll assume you have never tried hacking anything while a teenager and that you don't use online banking.
Some of these kids are indeed brilliant. Admiring them or not is the only matter here.
Hemos: I wonder what'll happen when Jobs leave apple!
CmdrTaco: What do you mean? He'll never leave.. he'll die CEO!
Hemos: I don't think so, we both know all this corporate overlords stuff, stock market and all.. He will eventually leave!
CmdrTaco: NO! The day Jobs resigns I resign from Slashdot (and go to google)!
He'll be working at google in a few months (non-compete clauses etc..). Didn't you notice all the guys up there with google signatures and screaming "come to Google+".
Enjoy future @google Cmdr!
First, I believe all this kinds of riots are just group/herd behaviour ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Herd_behaviour ) and any blackberry "coordination" was probably some innocent people inviting others to join the protest.
Come on those are just a bunch of angry kids that thought they were "doing the right thing" by raising hell and going against each and everyone...
No major coordination.. no major plots or conspiracies.
Going after everybody's bbms just to try to find out who were the rioters is just plain Orwellian.
Finally, blackberry stepping up publicizing that on twitter looks just like "hey hey people! Look at us! We want to protect you! We still exist and we are responsible!"
If it was that important they wouldn't make their support public...
