Comment What demands (Score 1) 260

"Similarly, Go was designed to make it easier to build complex systems. The old workhorses of the networked software programming industry, C++ and Python, just couldn't keep up with the demands that Google was placing on it."

Is there an explanation of what those demands could be? C++ and Python are very different languages in every way

"Danks was originally told police weren't going to take any action against him, but he unwisely continued to share the movie files after his initial detainment with authorities."

In other words, the cop had decided to let him go with a warning for speeding, and then, while the cop was walking back to his car, he peeled out and gunned the engine, accelerating as hard as he could.

And ran a few red lights as well.

And stole policeman's helmet.

Instead of doing your job, your actions will be tailored to suit the device. You will spend most of your energy and brainpower to look to the algorithm, instead of actually doing your work. We have seen this from ultra-competitive workplaces, e.g. Microsoft, where middle-managers and "top" employees were more concerning of how they were doing on their performance reviews, often sabotaging their coworkers work, than actually working.

We are Microsoft. Unix is irrelevant. Openness is futile. Prepare to be assimilated.
