Researchers Say the Tech Worker Shortage Doesn't Really Exist

CosaNostra Pizza Inc replacements (368 comments)

"is the industry’s desire for lower-wage, more-exploitable guest workers, not a lack of available American staff." If they want that, they can start with replacing the highest paid, least skilled workers in the companies...the upper management.

I'm most interested in robots that will...

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:Basic jobs, but not to avoid talking (307 comments)

The most mundane, biggest waste of time is driving between home and work every day. Image being able to type up a report/term paper, develop software, etc in your car while it drives itself to your destination. Also, removing the human element would probably reduce accidents and lessen gridlock traffic.

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:Why at a place of learning? (1007 comments)

Why isn't there a designated place for bullshit like this?

There is a place called a church but apparently, the fundis aren't satisfied unless they encroach on other venues.

The Other Side of Diversity In Tech

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Re:The answer (441 comments)

Well cayenne8...Unpleasant distractions in a job can make a job...well, unpleasant. Take me for example, I'm a developer who does a lot of analytical problem solving. Yet, I'm almost constantly distracted by the big-mouthed middleware guy who sits in the adjacent cubical and talks on the phone all day with a loud annoying voice. I wear 30db headphones sometimes, which help. I even asked to be moved to another cubical but I have to wait on an answer because the company may be moving to a nearby town in a few months, anyway. Also, most of us spend more the our waking hours of our lives at work than outside of work. My point is that people who feel ostracized or uncomfortable in their work environment are dealing with distractions...and distractions can impact work performance and/or physical/mental health.

Also, If everyone decides to move in to just a few states because they have great healthcare, those states will eventually be overburdened and then it will suck to live in those states too.

CosaNostra Pizza Inc Apple ][+ (81 comments)

I used to have an Apple ][+. I sold it back in the mid '90s. In retrospect, I wish I'd kept it for nostalgic purposes. I wonder what that would be worth now.

Scientists Seen As Competent But Not Trusted By Americans

CosaNostra Pizza Inc maybe (460 comments)

Maybe what we need are more scientists with public relations skills...people like Neil De Grass Tyson, who can dumb down concepts to a level the general public can understand without appearing condescending or threatening. It would help to also better educate the general public on matters of science. Then it would be easier to meet half-way.
