"It's really easy to argue that tech is a meritocracy, and the reason there are so few marginalized people in tech is just that they aren't interested, and that the problem comes from earlier on in the pipeline. They argue that if someone is good enough at their job, their gender or race or sexual orientation doesn't matter. That's the easy argument."
Before she heads off to her freshman year of college, we interviewed Patricia Torvalds about how she got into computing, feminism, and how to increase diversity in technology.

next gen speech recognition: how it is said matters as much as what is said!

Voice and how it is used actually helped improve the results, according to the study: analysis of the way the user talked provided valuable information.

And - this is open source so, in time, the research can benefit users in a direct way. Rocking!
Speech-Based, Natural Language Conversational Recommender Systems. Posted on July 25, 2015 by Peter Grasch. A while ago, I published a post about ReComment, a speech-based recommender system. Well, today I want to talk about SpeechRec: ReComment's bigger, better, faster, stronger brother.

"The arguments against fair wages and benefits are based entirely on the premise that working people are contemptible and undeserving, most likely because they lacked the foresight to be born into wealthy families. I’m puzzled by the numbers of working people who believe this, and I think that is due to their addiction to rosy fantasies of becoming despotic moguls themselves, with an underpaid and unhappy workforce of their very own."
These are super-interesting times we live in, when working people are so against other working people that they're happy to see the whole works go down in flames, rather than anyone else get ahead. one woman and two men standing over a bench covered with plucked dead chickens ...

I give this a solid meh. The building is old, and suffers the same flaws as every hotel I've ever stayed in-- too damn noisy. The doors slam, and you can hear your neighbors talking, their alarm clocks, blaring their TVs, and thundering up and down the hallways. It is sheltered from traffic noise, so that's one plus. The rooms are small, the beds hard, and our hot water came and went, which made washing up or taking a shower unnecessarily adventurous. The staff are excellent and helpful. The main thing I want from a hotel is a good night's sleep, and I've yet to find one that has a clue about this.
