Neat bit of digging, "However those requests, urgent or otherwise, are only accepted when the women don’t outright display their gender. Women with gender neutral profiles found their work accepted 71.8 percent of the time, and that number dropped to just 62.5 percent when their gender became readily identifiable."
 
Guys may loudly rule the dark corners of the internet and be considered the “computer nerds,” but according to a new paper from Cal Poly and North Carolina State University, it’s the ladies who are kicking ass and taking names when it comes to coding.

Sure the slam is nice, but the message that follows is key - this is not a fight just a president can win. More must be done.
 
Bernie Sanders responded to repeated attacks from Hillary Clinton that he has criticized President Obama throughout his presidency. "You ran against Barack Obama, I was not that candidate," Sanders reminded Clinton in his closing remarks at Thursday's Democratic debate moderated by PBS: CLINTON: But I want to -- I want to follow up on something having to do with leadership, because, you know, today Senator Sanders said that President Ob...

Moving forward with the framework.
 
One step closer to SkyNet
U.S. vehicle safety regulators have said the artificial intelligence system piloting a self-driving Google car could be considered the driver under federal law, a major step toward ultimately winning approval for autonomous vehicles on the roads.

New in gplus page loads a blessing or curse? I liked bumping out to chrome by default on case I needed to keep it in tab for go back. Need to see if there is a way to change this behavior. Probably not.

Looking for that Benevolent Alien Race to ♥
Introduction
  • Sometimes where you come from, such as a small WV farm, makes you all the more interesting. 

  • I try to remember that I am always at least partially wrong, that keeps me humble-ish.

  • I talk about science, technology, and politics. Typically I will not shy away from areas that folks avoid as the discussion can have value. I have studied finance and management information systems. I apply systems engineering, which I've also studied. I have worked in the government. I now am implementing projects. I will not let you off the hook for misinformation and most often call you out for bias (we all have them, just own up!).
  • I have stopped posting to individual circles for most posts. This is because G+ penalizes non-public posts.
