Slowly but steadily they will start losing talent and next thing you know you get Google-like search results with a twist (open-source algorithm or whatever).

My hunch is extremely intelligent people (IQ > 160) can't and won't stand catering to the SJW crowd. They will flock to the first guy who will support them and give them a competitive salary. Not even a better one, just a good enough one.

IQ 160+ people are often so focused on what they do that they don't care much about what the company does as long as they are free to pursue their projects.

They are already leaving. Slowly you are seeing a brain drain. The old timers are moving to new places, the young people are wanting to work for less established places with the promise of fat IPOs.

So fight back. Make his matyrdom worth something, you want to slap google back? Start calling congress and senate and telling then to throw the anti-trust and monopoly book at them. Microsoft got raked over the coals for far less and google has decided its a good idea to pick a fight with it's user base and the majority sitting house in congress.

People on this planet aren't going to stop using google products. That's just not realistic without some drastic "end of the world" type event. They're virtually too big and powerful and ubiquitous (<-- just googled) to fail, unless they do it to themselves. They know everyone more intimately than people know themselves. And practically no one cares. Even I use the chrome, the google, and the youtube. Some let them analyze everything they type. Haha, we're verging on living in science fiction, and not the good kind.

Anybody remember diversity hire Coraline Ehmke at Github? She (or it) got fired for being obnoxious.

Ehmke isn't alleging that she experienced sexual harassment, discrimination, or anything else illegal. She blames "inexperienced management" and a rough corporate culture for a frustrating year there.

The software community is very competitive, and I guess the criticisms it endured were too much. I know this first hand, sometimes criticisms are harsh and you must have a backbone to succeed. Do you think NASA handles software development with pure acceptance in the wake of possible underperformance? No.

Soooo.... basically it couldn't succeed in a meritocracy-based environment despite Github's generous effort to adopt diversity hires. Ehmke is vehemently against meritocracy.

I can't wait for the people who put men into space to be hired based on diversity of skill level. Read move about it here:
Skill Set Diversity: The Key to Increasing Team Productivity

Typically when we discuss diversity we are referring to age, cultural background, physical abilities and disabilities, race, religion, gender and/or sexual orientation. Rarely do we discuss various skill levels among employees as a diversity option.

[–] whisky_cat 0 points 8 points (+8|-0) ago 

Putting together a team based on complementary skills sets does not mean that everyone can do the same thing or perform at the same level.

and

What would a team that was diverse in both demographics and skill set look like for your next big project?

This actually supports hiring women as executive assistants, black people as mailroom staff, mexicans to do building framework, asians to crunch numbers, white managers to delegate tasks, germans for engineering, and probably jew investors to back. I'm aware it's not that black & white... but hell, shuffle the roles around and see what you get.

Actually I kind of agree with that. Not the way they really mean it though, obviously they're trying to sneak 'diversity' in anywhere they can.

See if you have everybody A+ level then it turns into a circle jerk about minute details, any thread you've ever seen on which is the best programming language etc.

Sometimes if you some neophytes getting the more experienced people to explain something it's has the effect of triggering new ideas, a new way of thinking while trying to explain it to somebody who hadn't heard of it before.

This is to do with how groups think though, not what race/sex they are, which is the point to a leftist.

And then what? Relying, hoping on DDG being "good guys"? I want something better. Blockchain + search engine + efficient client + relays for normalfags or something like that.

I'm not gonna develop that so I'm just gonna complain about it and do nothing for it to pop into existence.

DDG isn't as good / might not align with me politically

So what? We should just continue using Google instead of using alternatives that haven't politicised themselves yet?
