Or they just don’t want to… I love my kids but I would prefer work to the tedium of dealing with small children or an infant any day. Most men I know just aren’t wired with the ability to tolerate child care. The last few years of “wokeness” can’t undo a few hundred thousand years of evolutionary biology.

Sic transit gloria. Maybe we'll meet again someday, when the fighting stops.

Babies can be adorable but man they don't give a lot back. They whine, they poo poo, they sleep and this slowly gives way to smiles, exploration, and play, but the first year is tough especially if you're the primary carer. Everyone has a legitimate reason to dislike childcare but, yeah, making it biotruth immediately consigns your opinion to the bin.

It definitely isn’t. There’s so many more millionaires out there now. It’s not a big deal anymore, I expect most people will become millionaires at some point in their life, probably 30s. I hit a million 3 years ago and have already doubled that. 8 figures is the new goal.

If you want to keep vertically scaling the internet as an engaging virtual experience, Zuckerberg is your guy. Once the "Metaverse" launches in a meaningful sense, the masses will stop caring about cryptocurrencies/NFTs and start caring about whatever virtual goods and markets and experiences emerge on that platform.
For me, the internet is getting more interesting because it is increasingly materialized. It is unbelievable that we can deploy a fleet of battery-powered flying robots, linked over 5G and sharing intelligence while pathing with superhuman precision.
It's sad that in America, IoT/smart cities were more or less a temporary fad, probably having to do with cultural opposition to "surveillance" and low standards of governance. We've only scratched the surface with what's possible with it.

No, the difference is that social media has been very successfully weaponised, by the nation-state/mafia syndicates which communism gave birth to. So successfully, in fact, that it has made traditional warfare practically obsolete.
The social networks of today are to the world what the "Pravda" newspaper was to the Eastern Bloc in the 20th century. A weapon of mass subversion.

I am surprised that the author is surprised by this fact about the Progressive Activists. In my FAANG employer, the people who are always most offended, making denunciations of racism, sexism, -ism, etc. are highly educated whites. One of them told me in all seriousness that no white people should be allowed to do yoga or own yoga studios.

I just never stop interviewing. Keeps your leetcode skills up and you can easily carve out time with silent quality increases.

I am usually taking it out of work time, usually in the form of code approvals that I barely read or just ctrl+f for console.logs.

If I have an interview, all code that day is going through.
