Pixar was unique in Silicon Valley companies in that we had deadlines that could not move. The film had to be in theaters before Christmas, etc. I'd see employees families come to Pixar to have dinner with them. I took the technical director training but decided to stay in studio tools, first because Pixar needed better software more than they needed another TD, and second because of the crazy hours.

The government never collected tax money for universal healthcare. Obamacare was never claimed to be universal healthcare. It was claimed to expand the availability of health insurance and it did that. Feel free to argue if it was a good value or if it expanded it enough or even if insurance was an appropriate approach to healthcare, but it did what was claimed. The telecoms get heaps of money to implement universal service and have for a long time.
