"The End of Average" is nothing short of an a manifesto for individualism that explains how we got into the statistical straight jacket that gives us marvels such as stack ranking, one-size-fits-all education, standardized tests that dont tell you anything, top down management structures that stifle innovative and creativity by design. Read it.

<< In November 2014, Anderson was told he was being terminated during the middle of the fellowship. His review performance placed him among the lowest five percent of Yahoo's employees, all of whom were being fired, his supervisor told him. >>

not for nothing, but, i would only ask managers to rank employees in a linear fashion so as to find out which managers would actually do it vs. those capable of telling me i was insane to want it. i'd fire the former. all of them, down to the last man, woman, or child.
Gregory Anderson says his supervisors consistently preferred to hire women.

Cuba. PC ownership banned until 2008 (they are about 35 years late to the party). First undersea cable in 2011, not turned up until 2013. I could say a lot of things ("two cows" anyone?), but leave you to (mostly) draw your own conclusions.
 
Measurements find that Internet traffic bypasses the faster marine cable in at least one direction to or from the island, making connections three-and-a-half times slower.
