If anyone is poised to lose their jobs, its the airhead executives running MS, Apple, Google, Facebook, Yahoo

>>
>>51430672
Apple is the only company to have success in the Far East. And wild success at that, it's only grown and grown and grown. A lot of the things they've done with their products are to appeal to Far East markets.

The rest are shits though yeah. Google's fall from grace has been depressing, I had huge hopes for the Google Future back in 03/04.

Indians aren't getting tech jobs because of SJW and whatnot. Indians are just getting those jobs because they're desperate to get out of India, which is best described as the world's biggest individual slum, spanning over a million square miles and more than 1b people.

As for sexism and shit, I see the arguments made that women are discouraged from getting into tech and I agree with the general sentiment. I don't see women getting jobs that they're not qualified for though (and I live in the bay area and work in & study CS, so I would expect to see it here more than anywhere, if the rabble rousing from neckbeards is to be believed).

I think women should get more encouragement and support to study STEM in education. I see a handful of women benefiting from these sorts of scholarships, grants, etc... but I would argue it's not necessarily enough. But I would argue we don't have enough scholarships and funding available in general, so maybe I'm just bitching that academia isn't a lucrative enough area.

If you keep to yourself like an autist then none of this comes up. You just focus on your work.

If you're not an autist, then welcome to interacting in social groups: if someone feels uncomfortable because of the way you act or talk, you're expected to accommodate them. I have friends who object to profanity. I have absolutely no problem using it (when appropriate), but when I'm around them I respect their desire not to hear it.

The only other alternative is that you're not competent enough to get a job in a relatively competitive, high-paying market like the bay area, in which case you've just got sour grapes. Certainly, bitching about an objectionable US senator (when their influence on your day-to-day life is negligible, and no different from their influence on an Alabaman's day-to-day life) sounds like sour grapes to me.

Seriously, fuck California. I don't know why anyone would want to live in Silicon fucking Valley.

>Tons of traffic everywhere you go

Moving from there was the best thing I ever did. I ended up shacking up in the middle of nowhere Wyoming, I was so tired to being surrounded by so many people 24/7 I moved to the least populous place I could find. It's awesome, I'm two miles away from my closest neighbor, and I work my old job from home (still making that sweet SV money).

Plus you're money goes way further here. Before I was living in an apartment off of Haight Asbury, paying like $4000 a month in rent, for a fucking broom closet. Now I own a country style McMansion for $500,000 with 4.5k square feet and 500 acres of surrounding land.

If you think that moving to the bay area will put you in the vanishing minority that represents people working 60-70 hours a week, then you're probably retarded. The majority of people who work in tech lead reasonable lives with good work/life balance. If you insist on comparing your current state to a hypothetical that you would never find yourself in, then I'm sure you can find many reasons not to want to move somewhere or try something new.

But the fact is that upward mobility is more available in the bay area than anywhere else, and all this bitching *still* sounds like sour grapes to me.
>>
>>51431847
>But the fact is that upward mobility is more available in the bay area than anywhere else

Well, sure, but you need to remember that in the bay area, upward mobility means moving from a dorm to a studio apartment to a 1 bedroom apartment when you've really made it big.

>>51431827

It is true. $4000 is an exaggeration unless you live in SF. Maybe SJ and Oakland too.

This is the worst area in America. The worst traffic. The worst people. The worst climate (nice temperature but drought). Worst cost of living. Worst taxes. Worst amount of homless and crazies. Worst everything.

$120,000 sounds like a really nice salary out college but its really just inflated due to the CoL. My plan is to move away in a few years, this hell hole isn't worth it.

Crying about Dianne Feinstein is the ultimate level of sour grapes. she has no greater influence on life in California than life in Wyoming. Using her as a reason for not wanting to live in California is so transparently bullshit that it's shocking you're taking his side on this.

LA has worse traffic than the bay area. Cost of living is lower, though the proportion of spics to whites is way higher if that matters to you.

>>51431944
>worst traffic
literally there's worse traffic in the same state, in LA. bay area traffic is pretty much middle of the pack nationwide.

based on what criteria? politeness? new york and/or new jersey easily dwarf the bay area in terms of rudeness.

stop throwing meaningless, unquantifiable, unexaminable terms around.

Yeah, right in the heart of SF $4,000 is not an exaggeration.

As far as electronics goes, the most interesting thing to me is the massively growing domestic market. Chinese entrepreneurs are doing some really interesting stuff, and the fact that it's all taking place OUTSIDE of the old money cities (Beijing, Shangshit, Guangzhao, etc). Exciting times.

it's not shitposting. i'm confused why you think you should be talking about lower middle class living conditions, then we're not talking about someone working in tech, or at least not someone working in tech who's employable in good, well-paying companies in SV.

the narrative of moving to wyoming sounds exactly like the story of someone leaving the city for a small town so they can be a big fish in a small pond. the other side of that story is that they were just a small fry in the big pond - too small to make it - but they'd never admit that.

I have to agree with Wyoming guy, you probably own a $2 million dollar 1500 sq/ft condo and think youre living the high life for it. SOMA is shit btw, having meth heads come up to you for change, most the area does not look upscale but really seedy. You think youre living the high live because you have money left over to eat in an overpriced restaurant where the chef squirts swirls of colored sauce over 5 pieces of asperagas, no thanks, Ive seen it, not buying it

I guess I just don't see why you think it's a good idea in general to tell people what to do. Why should women get into tech more? Is your belief that lots of women want to go into tech but don't for some reason? Or that lots of women would love working in tech but don't realize it? Or that lots of women want to go into tech, try, but are unable to? Is this for the women's benefit, or the companies', or everyone's?

It seems very unlikely that the reason is that companies would routinely reject women, when it's totally not in their interest at all to do so. I'm sure a few do it, there's always some company or other making some dumb mistake. But widespread? Not a chance, businesses don't like to turn down free money in the first place, especially not when there's lots of it and so any competitor has the opportunity to collect it all up and gain a big advantage over everyone else. And in this very thread you see people complaining that companies are all hiring Indians now - what, are they that specific about their -isms, tripping over each other to hire racial minorities, but totally refusing to hire women?

I give zero fucks.

I'm in the top 1% of programmers and I decided to do it recreatively as a hobby for the rest of my life rather than pursuing a professional career in it. I don't do free software, either. I program only for myself and share my skills only with close friends and other old school hackers.

look you fucking indian shit, you are a piece of crap, a parasite to the tech industry and the first world in general, you are literally a cheap monkey and companies see you as a middle ground between a normal worker and a robot.

you will never be respected as a human being because your only selling point is that you are cheap, enjoy 24/7 humiliation at work. but you are proud of being cheap arent you? yeah you are you indian fuck, thats why i hate you guys actually, i used to think indians are based, but lately i dont even like curry anymore, you are a constant threat to my job, solely because you are half as competent as me at 1/10 the price.

i would actually respect you if you had the same salary expectations as me but only did cheap jobs to survive when really needed and were humble about it and hated your company for it, but no, as sad as it sounds you are literally proud of being a subhuman and you keep deliberately bringing salaries down.

indians shouldnt have access to computers in the first place, they are an invention of the white man and should never have been taken outside of usa and western europe, because now every online learning resource is ridden with that want to pretend they are people, like literally, there are obscure MOOC courses that have 40,000 pajeets on them
>>
>>51435598
Calm the fuck down. Indians are horrendous coders either way. As an employer, I secretly discriminate and don't hire minorities. Just start a tech company and do the same.

Every time a project gets outsourced to save costs, people tend to get fucked over by it. If you lose business to outsourcing, the clients normally come running back after a month with exploding servers and unresolvable databases. I normally charge them serious fees for their treachery. It works well.
