Obama Administration Argues For Backdoors In Personal Electronics

Wain13001 Re:The obvious retort (397 comments)

Back then we didn't have the propaganda machine on full blast trying to convince you that every child who plays outside is going to be kidnapped, raped, and mutilated by a stranger they chatted with online once.

Emma Watson Leaked Photo Threat Was a Plot To Attack 4chan

Wain13001 Re:Emma Watson is full of it (590 comments)

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/...

Huff post version, no paywall- references both the American Association of University Women and US Dept of Labor studies that showed the 23 cent distinction nearly vanishes when you control for Job Role, and the number of women working full time.

Wain13001 ALL episodes? (138 comments)

Does this mean we'll finally get to see episode 201 again? Seeing as how it's not allowed to show on southparkstudios.net

Tech Workforce Diversity At Facebook Similar To Google And Yahoo

Wain13001 wtf does baseball have to do with anything? (265 comments)

wtf are you even talking about? No, it's not surprising that not many black USians work for facebook. Seeing as how not that many Black USians work for tech companies of any sort. Wouldn't you think the latter has a lot more to do with facebook's potential diversity, or lack thereof? Wanting to be diverse doesn't mean refusing to hire white men if that's the majority of the available pool of applicants (not even getting into who's better qualified).

UK Ballistics Scientists: 3D-Printed Guns Are 'of No Use To Anyone'

Wain13001 "...yet" (490 comments)

You in fact SHOULD be concerned about this technology now, even if it's currently ineffective...because it won't be ineffective or useless forever.

Wain13001 Re:Certain Disappointment (325 comments)

It's not like Harrison Ford needs the money, so I can't imagine he'd sign on if it wasn't a good part.

Indie Game Jam Show Collapses Due To Interference From "Pepsi Consultant"

Wain13001 Re:Horrible reactions to predictable problems. (465 comments)

He picked the wrong year to ask his questions in the manner in which he did...also the wrong people. Zoe Quinn has been harassed to the point of blatant abuse by a particularly nasty part of the gamer community...death threats, forum-organized raids, and sexually harassing phone calls to her cell among other things. How she presents herself to the indie community as a woman and a developer is a very big deal at the moment. The indie teams are protective of each other and extremely protective of their individual images among their fans and supporters....this is a very big deal.

Also the show wasn't originally conceived of as the craptastic mess Matti turned it into once they got started. So okay, this wasn't quite as bad as Matti walking up to a female rape victim and asking her on camera if she thinks "women are asking for it..." but I'm pretty sure from some of the dev's standpoints, it wasn't too far from that either.

Indie Game Jam Show Collapses Due To Interference From "Pepsi Consultant"

Wain13001 Re:Drama queens... (465 comments)

The "gender nonsense" was not a real question. It was an insult...and it came at a time when a significant portion of the gamer community has just begun recovering from an uproar about women developers...and it's been such a hot-button issue that one of the women on this show not that long ago was receiving death threats from the members of the gaming community. Jimquisition has some great thoughts and insights on this issue.

The question of women's contributions and the benefits or disadvantages of women in a dev team is completely valid to extremely ignorant masses, and the answers could be very interesting and inspiring, but Matti's questions amounted to "What do you think Chett? Do women suck at this?" "What about you? You're a Woman...do you suck at this? or do you think the fact that you're pretty might help your team with the judges?"

fuck him, the worthless fucking fuck.

Could Humanity Really Build 'Elysium'?

Wain13001 Re:Different bottom line (545 comments)

Throwing everything at Earth would require organization and agreement from people of all kinds of highly conflicting ideologies. Building something somewhere else can be spearheaded and handled by a single group, or consortium of a few organizations (countries, companies, senators, etc...) who want to reap the benefits, but also keep the end goal and needs clear and concise.
