    We have a thread where John posts something that is overwhelmingly upvoted by members, which essentially speaks to individuals both recognizing an inherent problem in society as pertains to...

    I understand the point and I do not disagree with it.



    You say "again", but I don't think you ever asked that question :) I agree that without steps to address the core issue we won't solve the...

    I know you're being tongue in cheek with your A/B/C options.

    IMO you are probably best off sharing how diversity is also important to you, who your crew is today, and that despite asking...
  4. Per my knowledge there is nothing actually in...

    Per my knowledge there is nothing actually in place for this yet, I didn't mean to cause confusion with the ratios or statistics. That was merely a reflection on a current problem that has yet to be...

    Yes, in my post I make clear I am referring to Critical Race Theory and minorities, such as Black/African American. We are in agreement that women aren't a minority as they make up roughly 50% of the...

    Yes Portland. Oh, winning on legality with judges - sure. With securing potential clients, no.

    From what I’ve seen here, I don’t believe playing the legal or not legal card will get one too far. The tenor here is that the laws and legal system are corrupt, so attempts to appeal to it probably...

    Yes, it's a bit head spinning. But they will just say that you can't discriminate against the oppressor (that is, the white straight male), because discrimination doesn't apply to the group in power....
  9. This is the impact of Critical Race Theory in...

    This is the impact of Critical Race Theory in practice, it is a rejection of the idea we should live by MLK's "color blind" ideal of making race (or gender for that matter) a trivial indicator. His...

    In that case, yes. I was under the impression you were working with simple 1080p files.

    In any case, an external SSD drive won’t be as fast on paper but it will be as fast in practice - and much...
  11. Yes and you'll get faster speed as well...

    Yes and you'll get faster speed as well internal... though for most use cases it's likely more of a theoretical advantage at least as of today. But...

    Thanks say_doyster, and I agree with you. I am concerned at a culture level of where the inevitable trajectory heads. There's been a shift in education away from teaching people how to think, towards...

    Thanks for sharing this speculation, I am curious to learn more.

    I understand hospitals receive more money for COVID, and for good reason - it is novel and expensive to treat, so this seems...

    Exponential growth sucks. Hopefully awareness, vaccines, changing weather, and natural herd immunity will curb this.

    A lot of data is done per calendar year, such as leading causes of death in...

    I feel the same way. I think it's a bit paradoxical which is why it makes all of our heads spin. More like Yin/Yang iconography where each bleeds into the other, and there is a bit of the other in...

    Agreed, and this is also what makes it so tricky. It absolutely has a place. I remember being in China for a project and was staying with a family. We were out on the town for 1 hour, and despite the...

    Ahh I am jealous of your life in the UK! The ideology will probably cross the pond, I haven't really noticed it until the last couple years but it's sort of an Anthem at least in Portland, OR. My...

    Would love to hear people's observations, thoughts, opinions on this. Also particularly curious to hear from old timers with more life experience. What are your thoughts on, and have you noticed, a...

    This sort of stuff is a conspiracy that’s not a theory, it just is. The perpetual move to keep consumers from owning anything is problematic and in some ways more than a little concerning.

    There’s...

    The Asian countries didn't really need mandatory lockdowns in the way we did, because they have a culture amicable to the notion of voluntarily wearing masks, distancing, etc.
