I have to agree with you. We could argue about him all day, whether he was successful or not. All you need to know if who was CEO when Nokia tanked. Last time I looked that person was Elop. And now they want to bring him to Microsoft?
If you want the site to look like Digg, maybe you should just buy it.
How much did that CTO pay for his spot? He was really that much better than 6,000 other people?
Do you actually work as a project manager? I do. Try executing your idea in an average company and see how far you get. Good luck getting only "smart, talented, dedicated" individuals for your project! Even those employees will have character flaws, personality conflicts or other reasons that prevent the project from succeeding.
What is the definition of extortion, Alex?
I know that Hurd has been in development a long time. I'm surprised that they still don't have SATA drivers.
I hope the guy doesn't profit from this fraud. Most likely his startup will get acquired, if it really exists, or he will get a job in a more prestigious firm. Hey, there is no true and false anymore, right? What I really hope is that he goes back to the oblivion where he belongs.
I tried to volunteer with Big Brothers in the 90's. They rejected my application. I've always been convinced that I was turned down because I was open with them that I was gay. I'm convinced it was because they associated being gay with being a pedophile.
I consider myself a cynic, but I teared up when I read about your plans to honor your grandmother. I think you should do it. It's a simple, harmless way to show your affection for her. It doesn't harm anyone or anything but it allows you to respect her memory.
Oh, please. Give me a break. Virtually all child pornography involves exploitation of a child. How can anyone say that this should be legalized?
It's disappointing that Romney couldn't find a diversity candidate, a woman, African-American, Latino etc. How does he expect to beat Obama in the election with this ticket? Saying the economy is terrible isn't enough.
For those that wonder how this article got on the front page, remember it's News for nerds, stuff that matters. I think a presidential election is something that matters.
So, we should all just roll over and give in to any abuse of power? What an unbelievable attitude!
Yes I miss it too. I'm across the country now and there is nothing like Weirdstuff or Fry's around here in North Carolina. I used to go to Weirdstuff and just browse. A lot of times I wouldn't buy something but every so often you'd find something really neat. It was fun looking at all the old tech, old Apple II's, IRIX workstations, etc.
I've worked in several startup companies that grew quickly. You can't *make* people want to get to know each other or spend more time together. You're fighting the natural changes that happen when a company starts getting bigger. Implementing technology will not solve the problem you're trying to address. If you really want people to know each other and interact, then find ways for them to spend face time with each other. Host parties, organize events at local bars, have some group lunches, etc.
