Entitled “Agile Undercover,” the first report from Hoda and her colleagues demonstrated conclusively that Agile development teams were failing to communicate with their customers — not just occasionally, but mainly. And in order to ameliorate the impact of these failures, teams and their companies were making active, intentional efforts to keep customers in the dark about their development practices, including their schedules of deliverables.
There's more. A bunch more."
Lets say you come home from work at a real job and it's your time to do whatever you want. Would you rather work even more for $1/hour or would you rather watch TV (or surf the web or spend time with your family - basically anything you would want to do that doesn't pay cash)? Clearly free time has more value than $1/hour, at least if you aren't destitute to the point of needing that dollar.
In fact the value of free time is a function of how well your material needs and wants are met along with how much free time you already have. If you're unemployed, you're more willing to give up 8 hours of your day for cash than if you were already working 8 hours a day and were asked to give up 8 more.
Not the same thing. Roads take-up tons and tons of space. A hairthin fiber optic takes up virtually no space, so you can run 10-20 dedicated lines to every neighborhood and thereby provide 10-20 different cable TV providers.
Also if we followed your view to its logical conclusion, all the car companies should be merged into one single unit, to avoid wasting resources. But then of course you would have a car manufacturer monopoly, which is inherently anti-liberty and should be avoided at all costs. Same applies to TV monopolies like Comcast.
DOS was terrible. A bad clone of C/PM, which became an even worse clone of Unix (see the various commands, pipes/redirection implemented with temp files, etc.)
Gentoo was always pretty terrible. Fun, but terrible. A necessity on a K6.
No, you do all of your scripts with PHP because you're too fucking stupid or ignorant to learn a proper language like Perl, Python or Ruby.
Says the one who's too fucking stupid or ignorant to learn a proper language like C or Assembly.
Once you've moved on as a developer, and learned some decent languages, you'd see how much of a fetal abortion PHP is. It's literally a stillborn programming language.
So what? If he's quicker with it, who are you to decide he shouldn't use it? You already established you don't care about performance.
This critique makes little sense. She was already _in_ the crowded restaurant. What were they supposed to do but surround her with people in body armor and give her a chance to put it down, in case she is innocent? She was treated as a suspect of a very dangerous crime, but got the benefit of being treated as a suspect.
Would you really prefer that someone ventilate her head with a sniper rifle as a first response, which would have contained the potential damage even more effectively? Instead, the innocent passersby were protected by people in body armor who isolated her and kept her away from them while they assessed the risk. This is what I want in a security scare: react strongly, but politely (as the police on the site did.)
Things equal to nothing else are equal to each other.
