Cool, prove me wrong. Go deliver 100/100 service to the continental US. The only way you're going to deliver bidirectional 100Mb service is by running fiber to every house in the country. You don't have to be a LEC or an MSO to run fiber. Call your municipality, get the easement agreements and the pole attach agreements and run the fiber yourself. Let me know how it turns out. If you deliver 100/100 service to my doorstep for $40/mo I'll be the first one to sign up.

About 0.1% of the world has access to those speeds. I don't know what you're smoking that you think that constitutes "basic internet service".

If you can deliver $40 100/100 service, go for it. Anyone can put fiber in the ground and on poles. I'll pay for it. Everyone would. The reality is you cannot without massive government subsidies. In the US it would be hundreds of billions of dollars. Google's already trying. So unless you think Google also has a monopoly and is trying to screw you out of more money, then your argument kind of falls apart.

Blaming corporate culture is bullshit because most women from birth are told to not go into tech. The problem isn't graduating millions of female computer scientists and then they all get their first jobs and quit because of misogyny. They never studied tech to begin with. The problem isn't a office policy one, it's a cultural and societal problem that discourages women from pursuing careers in tech from about the age of three when they're given their first barbie doll.

Plus, take the images and invert the colors. You can clearly see editing work. Basic Photoshop detection 101. Even more fun when you have a shitty TFT screen that makes every glaring error even more obvious.

Not only is there nothing there when you invert the colors (see here, inverted and zoomed for your viewing pleasure), it's very likely it was a computer generated image and not even a photograph to begin with.

Any given program, when running, is obsolete.
