FYI for tech people who precache commonly used letter sequences in their typing hands, it's , not . Surprisingly hard for these hands to type, and not just because of the sadness.

I was on the IIgs version, with all its rectangular pixel glory. I remember dreaming that I would own a computer with square pixels one day.

You are literally the first person I would have asked that question to, so now I'm lost.

After having read the book, your pronouncement still applies. I think her ruthlessness had to be exceptional for her to even raise money. We need more non-sociopathic female founders. And less creepy investors.

We'll know we've achieved something when the same barely-competent female engineer gets to hold on to her job by taking credit for the work of the next group we need to fight for. Still a way to go, I think.

Because, if they do in fact apply, or you don't want to be responsible for this list of hate groups, there are ways to outsource that work to plenty of groups like ADL or SPLC. Lots of ideas but with the lack of transparency it's rigged against us.

First off, tell us why the obvious Bayesian priors don't apply here. It seems like someone could do an analysis of hate-affiliated armed groups like Boogaloo and understand what they have in common. Because of the magic of power law distributions, done is better than perfect.

I see what you're saying, the smell alone is far superior, though the Bimmer is empirically a much faster car. The sedan gets to 60 in mid 3s with 2x the fuel economy and can handle years of neglect without serious issue.

I think Facebook will ultimately be like cigarettes: They're known to be bad for you. Ultimately heavily regulated. Unpopular with the younger generation. Sold by people that put profits over ethics. And recognized as causing brain cancer.
