If you're a programmer who doesn't like programming, that's basically like you wrote down on your college application, "Hello, I want to be sad for money."
Maybe you should have studied welding.
Unlimited vacation: What this actually means is no guaranteed vacation.
Take your vacation, man. You're shirking your duty if you don't. When someone says, "you have unlimited vacation," they are trying to take money from you. It is in no way rude to take the money back.
If you aren't sure if you'll "have time," plan your vacations several months in advance. Even if you stay at home for your vacation, you'll feel better if you take them.
Most blind computer users just use a screen reader.
Do they? How are you so sure? The small sample size of blind people I know uses a screen reader (you can get them for ~$3000)
I think I read that one of the BSD variants has adopted it.
FreeBSD adopted it. But FreeBSD is more closely related to Apple than any other system.
But after I have asked and asked the question about why no Linux distro has forked it, all I get is "systemd sucks" type comments, or the chirping of crickets.
When I looked at it, I felt it was insufficient. It is tightly integrated with Apple APIs, and really works well with the Apple system (I do think it's a nice piece of engineering), but I didn't think it would be particularly portable. For example, using it to manage a system like Apache doesn't work as well. I've been wanting to look at FreeBSD's version, to see what changes they made to handle certain use cases, but I haven't had the time. In fact, I am definitely going to put that on my list of things to look at, because it could be really good.
At the same time, there is a long history of every Unix writing their own init system, and every other Unix hating it. In fact, you can omit the word 'init.'
The long pole in the tent isn't developing an AI capable of driving. It's developing an AI that can deal with assholes.
And Google still doesn't have the short pole built yet. (Really, their maps aren't even perfect yet, which is kind of a pre-requisite).
And until economics is based on anything other than sketchy math and ideology, it can never be a real science or have much more meaning than something people use to defend their ideology. But since people never look at economics separated from their ideology, it will never happen.
It seems like you get most of your economics knowledge from MSNBC or The Daily Show.
Back in the real world, economic concepts like MV = PQ is one of the most empirically tested ideas around.
Nobody has ever had any proof for "trickle down economics"
Just an FYI, no economist has ever supported the idea of "trickle down economics." The concept was created by a comedian (Will Rogers, great guy), and is mainly used the same way Republicans use the word "socialist:" as an insult against people they don't like. And frankly, that's how you're using the term, too.
