I completely disagree with the premise of this article. We need to evolve past "maternal imperatives". That kind of reasoning is holding both sexes from fulfilling, balanced work and family lives. If we keep believing that mothers have a magical need to care for their children beyond what fathers have (whether or not that's biologically true is irrelevant) then men and women will never have equal footing in all of life's various roles, be they professional or parental. We should have a society that respects ANY person's choice to spend time with their family. http://bit.ly/KXTHUT

Love any talk by John Rauser, but this one is especially inspiring and not because it specifically talks about a career in Big Data: Strata New York 2011: John Rauser, "What is a Career in Big Data?"

Most of these signs were designed to help people — to get where they're going, to find a pet, to avoid grievous bodily harm — and yet some writing-utensil-wielding wiseasses felt compelled to come alo...

So if I want to do some shameless self promotion, I have to do it on G+, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn? Argh! I need to hire me a social butler.

So I could create a "smart circle" of all people who follow JRuby that live in Washington DC, but since that feature isn't here yet, I'll just spam you all. LinkedIn is co-sponsoring JRubyConf this year in Washington DC, where I'll be giving a talk. If you're interested in discussing dynamic language implementations on the JVM amongst the backdrop of large monuments to old white men, come check us out!

I'm guessing that 3-20 startups right now are focusing on something like "socialButler.com" that will take a post and format it properly for all the networks.

Delightful cynicism
jonathan koren originally shared:
 
We demand a vapid, condescending, meaningless, politically safe response to this petition.

Since these petitions are ignored apart from an occasional patronizing and inane political statement amounting to nothing more than a condescending pat on the head, we the signers would enjoy having the illusion of success. Since no other outcome to this process seems possible, we demand that the White House immediately assign a junior staffer to compose a tame and vapid response to this petition, and never attempt to take any meaningful action on this or any other issue. We would also like a cookie.
