    So, companies that are funded by investors and stocks eventually WILL hollow out a marketplace?
    Investor money and stocks as doping, that you need to compete, because everybody takes it, even though it's a short cut and unhealthy in the long run.
    15:12 sums it up pretty well.

    This is totally real. If he would've been a coder, he'd have seen a whole other level of cult bullshit that no one who isn't a coder would be familiar with. So much talking in circles to confuse managers and make excuses for being passive aggressive.

    Complaining about white people in a white country??
    God forbid.

    This guy is complaining about the cult THEY created. All these tech companies will be destroyed by their own fervor. Demanding diversity instead of hiring the best man or woman for the job. You reap what you sow.

    President Donald J Trump will hopefully get the wheel in motion before you people burn Rome once again.

    this is why 100% of my coding and work is done REMOTELY. fuck these cults. I build AI and complex software that these snowflakes use but couldn't build themselves. These fuckers can't build a computer, they can only use one. They don't invent anything, they remix other people's work.

    This sounds like my experience with with learning to "code" at this "modern" school. The teacher didn't know how to code anything and the classmates were pretty moody except a few. They talked about how "we're the lucky few" and that we "need to be a 1 percenter."

    Too bad for his leftist drivel that lack of diversity is bad.

    I don't think the Teddy bear is that crazy
    Its the same idea that god is always watching
    and the All seeing eye
    You keep your self in check with moral values
    Or in this case the customer – the hand that feeds you or Teddy

    Don't think I'm crazy
    A teddy bear in a chair at the serious busyness meeting LoL
    Straight out of Mr.Been

    I guess they were all crazed up a bit over there
    But It's like this guy doesn't want to admit that there is any point or purpose
    to any of their methods
    Super biased one side of the coin ridicule
    Very unperceptive

    i really loved this talk because that was what i saw during my adventures in startups and corporate companies. main problem is; neoliberalism which is promoting trickle down economics leads world to a mass where precariat rises, extreme ideas and ruined planet. Those tech ceo's are no different than robber barons of 19th century. We have to fix that income inequality because we are people and we are data they sell and build a vast fortune over us.

  16. ivohhh

    September 12, 2017 at 3:29 pm

    We'll if you've got a problem why don't you start your own start up. I'm a programmer and I wouldn't want to work in an company with an tight ass culture. Of course that kind of pretentious happyhappy culture is shit too. Also I don't think looking at color/age of people solves anything. Actually I think it's pretty racist to say that every white guy looks like the same and is a bro fratboy. Only skill should be the basis for hiring people. and they should be paid accordingly. I'm not a CEO, but if some of my coworker is slacking or not a good team player, I think they should be "graduated"

    If you liked this talk, you should definitely check out his book: "Disrupted: My Misadventure in the Start Up Bubble". It's basically a longer version of this talk with more details about the idiocy of Silicon Valley culture (even though they were in Boston.) I found myself nodding frequently (I work in tech.)

    I have lost a job one time because I refused to hold hands to pray over John Paul's II death. It wasn't that "cool" StartUp though, just plain manufacture cleaning.

    Wtf is he lying about?

    In an effort to understand comedy and how it relates to culture, not to complain about the video because it funny and relate-able, but on the subject of humor as an abstract, is humor always at someone or somethings expense? Does humor force people to join a club, where we laugh at the others, and if you don't get the joke you risk being a victim of the joke, or you can't laugh at yourself, if it's something your guilty of, then how is that healthy. I'm just always stuck on this thought as it seems to be a dominate form of social conditioning where there's always a group of people that represent failure to some degree, and if you laugh at their failure your no longer run the risk of such a label being attached to you. There seems to be a lot of instances where a joke is more than a joke, it's a complaint with "your/they/that is an idiot" tied on the end. Something Trump liked to use when debating with Clinton. Why do we buy into that, as it always creates an "other" that needs to be marginalized it term of life preferences. Simply put the "hey your and idiot" joke is the most popular type of jokes in our culture, so it seems, and what does that say about our culture. Do we always need something to complain about, so no matter how good things are there's always an idiot that needs to be laughed at…. I constantly fail to see how that type of humor is healthy… but yet i do laugh at such things.

    Not racism to hire only white people if only white people apply. I'm sick of this identity political bullshit. Just hire the most qualified people.

    OMG! This guy is part of The Silicon Valley Series. That is why the show felt so realistic. I really wondered why the protagonist has to suffer so much usually in movies as soon as you hit a brilliant idea you are a success. But that series goes more true to life where struggle begins after the Eureka moment. As a comedy show it was frustrating to watch after a time but very realistic considering that it was a comedy show.

    Well this sound like any new business and markets that they dont know what are they are doing and there is lots losts of money. Looks like socialists and unions are going to be a trend again because capitalism sucks.

    Was the quote unquote racism bit f**** necessary. I enjoyed most of this but that really took me out of it cuz there's a lot of that b***** going on right now and just saying oh my gosh racism because so many white people is it really narrow and I know you're 52 but immature way of looking at it

  39. Ronald Huffington

    Oh. We actually have the super power thing on the little bios hanging on the staff wall. Except some are instead asked to write a quote or something else, it's very light hearted. And they keep forgetting to put mine up ;3 so my power is a secret!

    This is what feminism got us into: generation of obese, greasy haired man-children who watch chinese cartoons with naked woman and masturbate into napkins.

    The problem will never go away. The whole system is set up in a way that rewards greed. This is freedom. You will never have personal and economical freedom and equality.

    Hiding in a bunker with your billions of dollars, in a world where money will become meaningless and the only thing that matters is living to your next meal and finding a safe place to scratch out a living for yourself. Really shows how "smart" these people are. Sure they'll live in luxury for a while, but after the fires burn out and the smoke clears, where will they be? The only thing that money will be good for is burning to cook your rice and beans that you stole off a mother and child after you gunned them down with your hired goons while on a scavenging mission. Rather than sharing deep quotes on Linkedin maybe you should actually lead by example and live by those quotes. Oh wait that's right, millions of people suck your cock everyday trying to be like you, so we all know that's never going to happen.

High Alert: The Army Has New Crazy Plans to Build ‘Monster-Guns’ to Destroy All Enemies

Published

on

By



While initially conceived of and developed for the Navy’s emerging Rail Gun Weapon, the Pentagon and Army are now firing the Hyper Velocity Projectile from an Army Howitzer in order to potential harness near-term weapons ability, increase the scope, lethality and range ability to accelerate combat deployment of the lethal, high-speed round. The rail gun uses an electromagnetic current to fire a kinetic energy warhead up to 100 miles at speeds greater than 5,000 miles an hour, a speed at least three times as fast as existing weapons. The Army is starting formal production of a new Self-Propelled Howitzer variant engineered for faster movement, better structural protection, improved drive-train ability, new suspension and advanced networking tech, service and industry developer said.
