Whoa! Game developers are unionizing. It is our turn high-tech and compiler people: https://www.gameworkersunite.org
 
I have this reoccurring nightmare where my employees vote to unionize and I quit on the spot out of principle. And then the company goes on fine without me.
 
We can make it a win-win all around :-)
 
Except that I've now quit in a huff ;-)

Theranos doc: looks like the mini lab could have worked had it been larger, done fewer tests or used more blood? Shame this is now a nuclear wasteland and nobody will touch the idea.
 
That was my immediate and first thought, double the size of the box. Fewer tests would be good too.
 
I think that’s the unknown part — how good was any of the tech, realistically. But even if we accept that the tech *could* have worked, it didn’t. And even worse, it didn’t work the way it was promised and explicitly stated it worked and worse it was handling real patient data.

After the war, a bipartisan group was created to determine what went wrong, particularly why the intelligence community's conclusions about Iraq were so different from what was found on the ground after the war.
 
What went wrong was you were bent over on invading. When Blix couldn’t find any weapons, he asked for more time. Bush answer was “no more time”. The detectives on the ground were telling you “can’t find your imaginary weapon” https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/world/2003/mar/20/iraq.garyyounge
The CIA, along with the intelligence services of Egypt, France, Israel and others concluded that Saddam had WMD. We all turned out to be wrong. That is very different from lying.
 
There was no need to rush, the UN inspectors asked for more time- because no proof had been found of it, and the evidence was flimsy and debunked (“the British dossier”). You lied, people died.
The fact is that President Bush (and I as press secretary) faithfully and accurately reported to the public what the intelligence community concluded.
The Iraq war began sixteen years ago tomorrow. There is a myth about the war that I have been meaning to set straight for years. After no WMDs were found, the left claimed "Bush lied. People died." This accusation itself is a lie. It's time to put it to rest.
 
Nope, you definitely lied.
 
We will remember you both as an accessory to war crimes and a liar. You though “16 years sounds long enough for people to have forgotten the facts” - we don’t and we have receipts.
 
You pushed Helen Thomas out of the way - we saw this, because she asked unconfortable questions. And you didn’t like being caught lying: https://web.archive.org/web/20030313224213/http://www.commondreams.org/headlines03/0307-07.htm
