I'm replying to the poster, not to the article.
My point is that if you take the "free market" idea to its ultimate expression, then it's just about money. If the market demands a liberal viewpoint, then as a good businesswoman it makes perfect sense for Arianna to ignore whatever personal political views she has and supply what's being demanded. It even makes sense to switch the viewpoint back and forth repeatedly depending on what pays more at each point in time.
So why is it that the grandparent is complaining about it? It's perfectly in line with the free market philosophy.
Isn't that how capitalism is supposed to work? I thought conservatives were all for the free market.
Though personally I still think that news are supposed to be neutral, and that the whole idea that a news outfit can have a political slant is a perversion, regardless of the direction.
Just like any cutting edge tech. Not so long ago you'd be writing graphics code in assembler. And dealing with the memory restrictions DOS had to offer.
On top of everything, the binary is a mismash of compiled executable chunks sitting in the interpreted code. Essentially the if a competitor or hacker gets the "executable" they can reverse engineer every bit of innovation you had done to cram your code into these tiny processors and reverse engineer your scientific algorithm at a very fine grain.
Big deal. It's funny how touchy people get the moment they do something vaguely original. The GPU's architecture is known, the optimization strategy for it is well documented. A big part of what you'll end up writing is just following the device's constraints, and so not really original.
Aren't scientists supposed to share data and knowledge, anyway?
So what are things like in IT in the USA? I hear there are people working 60 hours a week as well, and not getting paid for overtime. In the games industry, there are people working 80 hours. In the medical profession, 80 hours seems to be the average in the USA (at least according to Wikipedia).
Well, easy, that should be illegal as well.
Aside from that, studies show that productivity decreases after 40 hours anyway, so working 80 is completely pointless and counterproductive.
Russia did build one.
As part of the settlement, Glik agreed to withdraw his appeal to the Community Ombudsman Oversight Panel. He had complained about the Internal Affairs Division's investigation of his complaint and the way they treated him. IAD officers made fun of Glik for filing the complaint, telling him his only remedy was filing a civil lawsuit. After the City spent years in court defending the officers' arrest of Glik as constitutional and reasonable, IAD reversed course after the First Circuit ruling and disciplined two of the officers for using "unreasonable judgment" in arresting Glik.
That only works for people who professionally drive cars. Somebody who just commutes to work isn't going to be in the right state of mind for precisely pressing the brake pedal when they suddenly realize they must brake NOW.
No, stop staring at the sky, and get off your ass and do something about it.
At least make a donation to the EFF.
Heh, only in the US people vehemently argue for their right to get screwed.
Except things don't really work that way.
What gives you idea that there's some conglomerate of scientists that as a group decides "we will prioritize efficiency"? The people who made this light bulb probably specialize in fields completely unsuitable for contributing to fusion research. And scientists are people with their own interests. Just because you think that fusion is the thing we should be looking at doesn't mean anybody has to pay attention to your wishes
Because other people often end up paying when people like yourself end up flying out of their windshield.
