Comment Welcome to the Internet of Things (Score 1) 315

I'm sure the sudden resurgence of C (don't call it a comeback, it was here all along) is because of the sudden Internet of Things craze. I work in embedded systems and there is a lot of interest in "smart" devices right now. All those micro controllers going into those "smart" devices are going to use C, and that's often your only option. So, it's no surprise to me that C is back on top.

I also like to point out that my favorite programming language is (quite often) the one your favorite language is written in ;)

Comment Re:Where is the GOP saying business-first shit? (Score 1) 771

Nixon's racist Southern Strategy and Reagan's courting of religious extremists have driven out anyone who believes in individual rights and has an IQ over room temperature.

This is particularly insulting to any Republicans that use the metric system. Fortunately not many of them are scientists.

I'd rather see a law that said the highest-remunerated employee in the company could not be given more than 10x that of the lowest-remunerated employee in the company. That way the people who deserve the windfall of a successful and profitable business are the ones receiving it.

This sounds good in theory, but I think it has the potential for unintended consequences, such as companies exchanging all low-paygrade employees for external contractors.
