IBM Seeks Patent on Judging Programmers by Commits

HWMTM A tool for the programmers themselves? (5 comments)

I immediately thought of programmers being able to analyze their own coding habits, and make adjustments to help improve efficiency, accuracy, and readability. Any code review is a good code review, in my book.

Microsoft Issuing Unusual Out-of-Band Security Update

HWMTM Re:Microsoft updates before Google and Oracle? (156 comments)

It's precisely because it affects different platforms that MS is rolling out the update before others.

Maybe times are a-changing.

Foreigners Don't Take IT Jobs, They Create Them

HWMTM OWS? (1 comments)

"One commonly espoused view is that if we keep more foreigners out of the U.S., employment will rise and the economy will rebound. "

Wait, who's saying this? Granted, OWS has a lot of interests, but I doubt keeping out foreigners is high on their collective list.
