Re: Silicon Valley Disrupts Its Own Ass

So, wait, is Google a crazy free-fire zone, politically, or is it a lockstep rightthink orthodoxy? I'm sure you could criticize it as being one or the other, but both? Really? It's the latter trying to present itself as the former. Yeah, no. I don't believe that for a moment. Especially when the se...

So, wait, is Google a crazy free-fire zone, politically, or is it a lockstep rightthink orthodoxy? I'm sure you could criticize it as being one or the other, but both? Really? It's the latter. No one is arguing the former. The problem is that it has subsumed the broad enforcement of rightthink orth...

Re: Silicon Valley Disrupts Its Own Ass

The most recent Fifth Column podcast touches on this a bit. I's a conversation with Bret Weinstein and his wife about the Evergreen College & free speech on campus thing, and they mention Google & Damore early on. (I'm only about 20 minutes in.) Weinstein is careful to point out that yes, "free spe...

Remember how some people had a theory that Trump would lead to fewer killer robot death or civilians? Not so much. (see about 75% down)

What the shit is this ? Don't these people have high paying jobs? Which would serve to reinforce their sense of entitlement. “Activists at Google” helped organize a rally critical of President Donald Trump’s policies. “Militia at Google” members discussed their desire to overturn a prohibition on g...

Re: Petty annoyances

My experience was that everything non-trivial (like all the laptops and serious electronics) was okay with the higher voltage, and I just needed a plug adapter. But the cheap stuff I'd have needed an actual voltage stepper. Not my TV. Isn't that more than a voltage problem though. NTSC vs PAL. Or d...

Re: Random Observations C.A (306 pages is enough)

Yes, I know how it will play out in practice. The courts will hold that you're allowed to practice those forms of discrimination that they like, but not those that they don't like. I don't know about that. Over time the courts tend to shore up the division lines. They'll have to find something part...

Re: Petty annoyances

Yeah, welded wire reinforcing steel is going to be a lot less of a problem than any sort of rebar. It's like a crappy net for your car. I'd say it's the other way around. Rebar is guaranteed to sink in water and that's about it. It's thick soft iron. Those thin metal wires are stiff and can poke ho...
