Well, I think the study is still interesting. Because we still often hear that women are paid less for the same job. That study essentially proves it wrong. Before you can fix a problem, you first need to understand where it comes from. From this study, the problem does not come from discrimination in the hiring process. And this is good news.
I miss my freebox...
The thing is that there is a serious lack of competition in the US regarding network providers. In my area, there is only one provider that can give me more than 3Mbps. So there is little you can do to fight. I believe the various internet operators see no interest in having too much overlap between them, as they know it would ultimately drops their profit margin.
Well, it is not a union that is necessary in the field I believe. It is statistics. Detailled statistics of what gets paid here or there and for different kinds of seniority or field of application could definitely boost workers leverage during negociations.
A union will do that statistics for you, but with lots of other things that might or might not be good.
First of all, thank for your contributions to the world of software and agreeing on making that interview.
In the world of software, I am often under the impression that the "proprietary" world develop the game-changers and that the free software follows. Because of that lag, free software appears to always be in position where it has to adapt to the world around it, which diverts lots of efforts or causes lots of frustration. The only parts where free software appears to pioneer is the infrastructure kind of software. Do you have a similar impression? What are your suggestion to try to bring free software to a leadership position?
OH, that's an interesting statistics. Thanks for pointing to it. Interestingly, we can see that pretty much all "professional occupations" have a low unemployement rate; only "arts and entertainment" being fairly high.
I use a few password for common systems I log in. For all the rest I use pwsafe to generate random passwords. I keep the password file on a git repository cloned on all my machines so it is difficult to lose that file.
A friend of mine was working on sentiment analysis. They studied the content of yahoo answer and it was quite interesting all the correlations that you can make. The study is of course not enough to provide a direct identification, but it shows how many parameters you need to keep in mind when building a "virtual identity".
Well, many applications seems to have an "export to dropbox" features, but not all have an "export to owncloud" feature. This imporves on Android where there are proper interface for exporting documents. But you still need the application to use it properly. If I understood correctly, there is no such interface on iDevices which forces each softwaredevelopper to explicitely write a support (probably smply linking with an external lib andadding a hook) for different cloud platforms. This is essentially the same thing with other system, you might have an application on your computer or a web applicatin. If it does not support owncloud export explicitely, you are on your own.
Note: I do not own an iDevice, that is what I gathered from other people using it.
I completely aggree with that, but they did not release an android version that that can output pdf. Yes it is ridiculous, you can read and annotate, but you can not save what you do.
Any Android suggestions?
I am using git all the time. But most of the time, I am doing less than 5 different commands. Why would you need a shell for that?
I am a young researcher (got hired this year on a tenure track position). I must say I do not blog because of lack of time, more than because of not wanting my ideas to be stolen. Likely if I blogged, I blogged on news or on published papers. That could help the visibility of my work, which is what is most important to me now. I no longer care about paper count. Now I care about visibility.
I don't think that is even what this is about. I grew up in France and live in the US now. I do not think there were less credit card fraud there than here. (Though statistics disagree with me .) At the end of the day, the pin does not change much since most of the credit card fraud at remote transactions. And you use neither pin nor signature for them.
Every single transaction I reported as fraud were remote transactions. Often the result of a company charging me for somethign I did not agree on.
