    Sonos: How to ruin your brand and piss off your early adopters (of course, do it after you go public)

    This is the standard procedure in the neo-liberal era of global economics: grow big and in a cozy, supportive environment built by either early adaptors that took a risk on you, or public money supplied by the Fed, then the moment you finally become big, go public on wall street and ditch your...

    OFF-TOPIC Kobe Bryant Dies in Helicopter Crash

    I posted this on my facebook feed yesterday, and will post it here today again: Why Kobe's death and the way it happened, is the last thing America needs right now. Kobe has worked so hard in his life on his craft, because a deep desire to be in control of his life and decisions in the most...

    GOLD! Ever wonder how people end up in dead end jobs at 40?

    It is also better for me because education can not be taken from me, I can take them from place to place, it is my asset, whereas the work I do at work only belongs to the boss man, not me.

    GOLD! Ever wonder how people end up in dead end jobs at 40?

    SO this is what I do at work: do the min. amount of work required and not to get fired. Then use the downtime or off time during work to study for more IT certs. Funny thing is management actually likes the fact that I get those certs, because it makes the company look good, and make me look...

    Got DESTROYED On Shark Tank! What Now?

    There is no such thing as negative attention, someone just used it to become the most powerful man on planet earth, literally. Oh and the current UK prime minister did the same thing, maybe there is a thing or two you can learn here too. There are people on youtube literally killing themselves...

    RANT Most efficient way of using my meager 10 days of vacation?

    Get a better job with more flex vacation options. I am currently having negative vacations yet my work allow me to flex my vacation time from the future to make it up, this is on top of 3 weeks of vacation plus 3 days of paid sick time. Not all work are made equal it seems.

    OFF-TOPIC The Cult of Dan Lok - Brainwashed Student Lost $26,000 Testimonial

    I could care less about the 'not all of us' thing, I need to make a decision based on a likelihood analysis of the situation. If the majority of people do things one way, then it does not matter to my decision making process what the minority are doing, because as a newcomer to this place, every...

    OFF-TOPIC The Cult of Dan Lok - Brainwashed Student Lost $26,000 Testimonial

    That is the biggest lesson I learned being a first gen immigrant in the US: you do not judge people here by what they say, but judge them on what they do and what choices do they make. If you only judge americans on what they say, then I am afraid that you are going to have hell of a hard time...

    REAL ESTATE California Governor signs rent-control law... yea or nay?

    The only difference here is that not many people wants to move to Oregon, but there are always people wants to move to California.

    REAL ESTATE California Governor signs rent-control law... yea or nay?

    California will be fine, even through rent control won't. What most people living in middle america don't get California is, here the economy already works like a third world country: we have the highest cost of living, the best performing economic sector in tech, best weather where all the...

    I really, really like how you put it this way, very realistic way of dealing with emotions. I will learn how to feel my negative feelings and use forward action instead of self pity to drive it away.

    Thanks, I like how you didn't completely tell me to kill the urge, but to learn to digest it quick and put in forward motion to dismiss it.
