Comment Re:The first to quit are the good ones (Score 1) 297

Every reorganization, every revamp, every change means that some people will not like it. And those that don't like it have two options: Grin and bear it, or hand in a resignation note.

Question for 100 points: Will good people, who are sought and have zero problem finding a new job, be in the first or in the latter group?

They'll be in both. And will your other group ("people who know that they have no chance of ever being hired again because they're lazy, dumb or both").

It appears that Bitcoin, a currency designed with anonymity in mind...

No. Bitcoin is designed around decentralization, not anonymity. Every transaction is logged forever; for anonymity, that's a nightmare. This misconception is widespread. Bitcoin is not anonymous; if privacy is important to you, you should not be using it.

"You may be joking, but the reality is that open source projects often have some of the worst management around"

I find that hard to believe. I mean, just because open source programmers are overrepresented by the socially maladjusted loners with chips on their shoulders demographic, you think that translates to bad management?

The frame is not the largest expense, but the time and expense to get a closed in frame is one of the largest barriers to providing affordable housing.

Not really, no. A tiny house like the one in the article can be frame and enclosed in a two working days. Given the time to set up and dismantle the machine, I suspect they saved a half day at best.
 

Everything else can be done on a budget or as time permits.

Not really, no. Not if you're building to code, and not if you intend to occupy the house anytime soon.
