I do not have anything to back this up, but my suspicion is that women are not only underrepresented but HUGELY underrepresented in this field.
Sure: pick any other male dominated field of work and you might see the same underrepresentation.
CS is different though, it resembles physics, mathematics and other fields, where women are represented quite well. It's a white collar job. I suspect no other white collar job has this kind of underrepresentation of women..(?) Am I on to something here or is this nonsense?
Where did you come up with that pile of crap? Once a standard is "out there", how can a single company remove those benefits from the community?
Take a guess. They control 90% of the consumer PC market. Or did, at least. You don't think that is enough power to do something like that?
most places I've seen could care less about the degree if you can get the work done.
So you are saying that they actually do care to some extent whether you have a degree. Do me a favor and watch this video.
don't to the crime if you cant do the time
I know, but 20 years?!?! Are they serious? That is an insane amount of time for a non-violent crime!
"Anything a computer can generate it can understand."
Well that's besides the point, isn't it? A computer can generate and understand hashes, but that does not mean they are easily breakable
You just need to make the decoding much harder than the encoding. There must still be computational areas in the visual domain where we humans are way more efficient.
God made machine language; all the rest is the work of man.
