Dropcam CEO's Beef With Brogramming and Free Dinners

salteye Re:Reactionary much? (400 comments)

I guess if you want to hire people based on age rather than programming ability you've probably got a suboptimal team anyway. So in a way you're right, I'm caring way too much about this.

salteye Re:Reactionary much? (400 comments)

No, it's just that as younger programmer it bothers the hell out of me that people take age as an automatic sign of superiority or inferiority.

Dropcam CEO's Beef With Brogramming and Free Dinners

salteye Re:Garbage, Wrong (400 comments)

Fine, but then don't discriminate against the others simply because they don't. I'm sure you have much less time than you'd like now. Don't take it out on others.

salteye Re:Reactionary much? (400 comments)

See this? Pompous, self-righteous attitude. Yeah, I'm sure your older workforce is made of coding aces who are honing their skills after their families go to bed. Have fun living in your bubble. Hope you don't get laid off!

salteye Garbage, Wrong (400 comments)

Young, single, childless males are the ones who will dedicate their evenings to making sure not only that things run properly, but that you are in the front of your field. Filling your department with family oriented people is just going to give you a whole bunch of people who will do what they must and anything they need to not to lose their job. If you follow this advice, DO NOT EXPECT TO INNOVATE!

Google Glass and Surveillance Culture

salteye Hm (318 comments)

I really hope concern over the glasses will read to people being more conscious of data privacy, but to be honest I have to wonder why people are just now concerned about data privacy. A former senior executive at the NSA was persecuted for trying to speak out against sweeping surveillance against ALL americans and had the espionage act used against him, yet awareness of this issue has remained close to zero. Face it, people, we already live in a surveillance society. Everything you do is associated with you. Here's a video of the former NSA exec speaking: http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/311537-1 This is already a really important issue.

Yes, let's keep ignoring that gigantic housing bubble. Right. This is somehow the government's fault.

Ask Slashdot: Starting From Scratch After a Burglary?

salteye Re:Wait to see what you need based on use. (770 comments)

This is solid advice. I basically don't worry about getting robbed because I don't have much to begin with. The most a burglar could make off of my apartment is selling my laptop(which has an encrypted hard drive) and my monitor. Everything else is not worth much.
