I got an email a few weeks ago from one of the higher ups asking that each of us make a 1 minute to 5 minute video bio of ourselves. They told us that the video is voluntary but they would like everyone to do it. After several weeks and being sent to 150+ people only 10 people have done it. I found these statements in the original email hysterical:

" If you are able to do a 1 minute to 5 minute video"
" Employees + Contractors – We all are ONE Team "
" Especially for Contractors who will NOT be at this event "

Daily reminder - I am not perm, dont get benefits, dont get vacation and the only reason I am here is for $$$. I am not your "friend". I will be on your team till the day you decide you dont want to pay me any longer. Than poof, just like that I am not there any longer and am no longer your "friend".

This morning I got another email that they were giving us one more chance to do it by extending the deadline 3 days. That was followed by an email stating that they wanted 75% participation.

Can this guy take the hint - NOBODY wants to do it. Not the employees and definitely not the contractors. Here is the list of what they want with my responses:

Introducing yourself stating –

o   Who you are

If you don’t know who I am then we’re in bigger sh*t than I thought

o   What area and project you support

If you don’t already know this then we don’t work together and it doesn’t matter

o   Where are you based out of

Uh, 1. check the corporate directory, 2. why does it matter since everything is ‘global’ anyway?

o   One interesting fact about you

I seriously dislike “fake” networking via social media and especially video.

o   Your hobbies and/or your passion and if time permitting

Uh, I don’t have any time for hobbies and if I did I wouldn’t share them with colleagues I’ve never met in person let alone tell them in a video that could end up who knows where in which to be trolled

o   Why you enjoy working here

Uh, I don’t actually enjoy working here. Show me 1 person who does and I’ll show you someone who is more fake than network news.

This is basically forced social networking. I am not doing it as I have concerns of what may happen with the video. No thanks. As we all know, once you post something online you lose all control of the content.


This quote about sums it up:

"Linux also, like the Mac is more of a religion where Linux followers praise new features that actually make the user experience worse. The community behaves more like a cult and seems completely disconnected from the reality of making something productive.

Linux is free and is actually not even worth what you pay for it. That’s why people actually are willing to pay for something else. If Linux paid you to take it it wouldn’t be any more popular than it is now."

These idiots need to standardize one one GUI, one way to install software and be done with it. Nobody needs 30 versions of something that you have to figure out how to make it work.

This would be equivalent of a company that makes socket tools having different ways of attaching the sockets for no reason other than vanity.

Is this being done to shake out the suckers ?

Remember that Google employee named Damore that was fired at Google awhile back because they didn't like the things he said. Well now he is suing them. You should read the stuff that is in his suit. Google really is an echo chamber.

Its dot com v2.0 all over again. As I said before this is a total bubble. See below for some quotes.

" It quite literally takes less than 24hrs to do so for someone with mediocre tech skills. The only difficult part is convincing suckers, err sorry, I mean lovely people, that the coin you created is worth something. This simple fact has led thousands of scam artists throughout the world to create their own coins and sell them to unsuspecting retirees and “I wanna get rich quick” targets."

"While creating a cancer pill, even with step-by-step instructions, would require some materials, equipment and incur some costs, the production of a random generic e-coin costs pretty damn close to $0. All you need is a website and some hype."

I have been watching bitcoin for years at this point. I wanted to buy some around 2013. Per an article I had read recently - if I had bought $100 it would be worth millions now. And I would not have to work :( . Again I missed the boat, this won't be the first time for me.

I could care less about the technical details of these crypto currencies. Let the computer dorks figure it out. But what I do care about is that it appears to me that Wall Street has found their next vehicle for a bubble. Think about it: we had the dot com in the 90s, than it popped. That was followed by the real estate gold rush, which as we know also popped. The stock market has been surging now for a long time since the govmt has basically been slopping unlimited currency at 0% interest to prop up the banks. They have to do something with all that money and buying raw materials, stocks and real estate is just not getting it done for them at the level they want. So that leads us to this.

Wall Street appears to be going whole hog into the cryptocurrency thing. Witness the media hype about it which reminds me of the dot com. Witness the lack of any underlying value (with this there is less than nothing - its literally fiat currency purely out of your imagination). Witness that all kinds of investment vehicles around the cryptocurrencies are appearing including IPOs, ETF, and all kinds of other financial instruments JUST LIKE THE DOT COM.

IMO we are in the beginning stages of this. Its not full blow yet but its heading that way. Companies are getting crazy valuations so it might be the time to invest some money in it if you are interested. The only thing is how do you know when its time to get out ;) ? Thats the real question.

Just food for thought...
