"And that’s what the French are saying with this “ban”. That the ever-expanding expectations for when someone is available have gotten out of hand. And they absolutely have. Work emails are ticking in at all sorts of odd hours and plenty of businesses are dysfunctional enough to believe they have a right to have those answered, whatever the hour. That’s unhealthy, possibly even exploitative."

"Same goes for forcing everyone to work in an open office. The research is mounting on all the ills that come from persistent noise and interruptions from that arrangement. Sure, it works for some. And not everyone who used the table saw without safety protection lost a limb either. That’s just not good enough."


The French just banned companies with more than 50 people from sending their workers after-hour emails. Well, “ban” is a bit of a strong…

Guys guys open office plans just happen to be way cheaper, it's really about innovation though! Cost cutting has nothing to do with it :)

From the linked report (http://www.gao.gov/assets/680/677436.pdf):

Strategic Automated Command and Control System

Coordinates the operational functions of the United States’ nuclear forces, such as intercontinental ballistic missiles, nuclear bombers, and tanker support aircrafts. This system runs on an IBM Series/1 Computer—a 1970s computing system— and uses 8-inch floppy disks
Want to launch a nuclear missile? You'll need a floppy disk.

Second, in her article titled The Outgoing Introvert, Jenn Granneman poses the idea that some introverts are social and not shy, enjoying the spotlight on occasion and not fearful of meeting others. Yet, when the battery gets depleted, these people need time alone in order to recharge and be ready for the next event.

Sums up perfectly the last few days of meeting all y'all handsome fellows and lovely ladies at I/O and then going back home to work alone in my basement. We need to take it slow. Real slow. Let's do this again in like 5 years or so.

"It gets worse. If Thiel’s strategy works against Gawker, it could be used by any billionaire against any media organization. Sheldon Adelson, Donald Trump, the list goes on and on. Up until now, they’ve mostly been content suing news organizations as plaintiffs, over stories which name them. But Thiel has shown them how to go thermonuclear: bankroll other lawsuits, as many as it takes, and bankrupt the news organization that way. Very few companies have the legal wherewithal to withstand such a barrage."
His campaign against Gawker, disguised as philanthropy, should scare us all.

I don't think this is an issue. Legal financing is already a thing long before this case, and plaintiffs can always be ordered to pay legal fees for frivolous lawsuits if the system is abused.

And then this podcast was all like "I really don't like when I see people who take some things about Android for granted, and they talk because they've heard things and they've seen videos a few years ago, and they've never bothered to try Android. And I was one of those people, and I didn't want to be one of those people anymore, and I thought the best way for me to form an opinion and to actually know what I'm talking about and to see what is going on was to actually try Android and to actually buy an Android device and to see what's going on there" and I was all like...

+Assia Alexandrova tells me that today is the day of Slavic Culture and the Cyrillic Alphabet. Fun fact - I was named after one of the guys who "invented" that alphabet. At least that's what my parents told me.
