Comment Re:Try an internship (Score 1) 255

Except the intern I am paying and teaching, but maybe I am getting old. I can't justify having someone work for me and not pay them, especially since I am making money off him and expect deadlines to be met.

For the record, I had two paid internships while I was in college and both were above minimum wage in computer science industry. I found them through my college, which offered a co-op program: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

I have no problem with monitoring parolees, that's part of the bargain. Wearing a tracking device to get out of jail early, submit to drug testing, etc. However, tracking people who have not committed any crime is a different story. Here's a scenario, a 'clean record' man loses his wife due to a drunk driver. He buys a gun and starts hanging out near the defendant (all realistically trackable by an algorithm collecting records & gps data), what is an appropriate response, if any?

Care to comment on your last answer from your last interview here on slashdot?

McAfee: The attorney for the House Ways and Means Committee contacted me and asked if I would help. I said “no”. I would never run for office, neither would I want to be in office, of any kind. I would rather drive a nail through my foot.
