Normally you don't expect any non-standard political pressure when you take a job


I guess that’s what happens when the president of your country acts like the mafia


Like or dislike Trump, TicTok is controlled by the CCP and banning them is the right thing to do, along with Huawei


This is Eric Schmidt's idea about it. Basically he fears we're splintering the internet and losing the influence the US has over it by banning companies for doing what American companies already do

Mayer was hired to make TikTok's presence palatable to the western market and lawmakers. It was always going to be an uphill struggle regardless of Trump's tantrums.


There is a big difference between terms of use and possible abuse by private companies who can be bullied or taxed or banned and a hostile government looking to control the world through its military tech arm

Each has a different answer IMO 1) We need pharmaceutical independence - not because of poisoning as manufacturers test ingredients but because China can hold them back at crucial moments like what happened during the pandemic 2) Lenovo no issues fundamentally unless it has a “phone home” capability that is sending US citizen PII / personal data back to CCP masters - this can be tested, ascertained, monitored

It is pretty obvious that a deal is close and there is no place for him. So he quit. That’s my take.

Delta or American? Why?


"Nine women can't make a baby in a month" ^ any other phrases/examples of the mythical man-month that are less cringey? "Too many cooks in the kitchen" just doesn't illustrate the issue as well


Work with a girl who is proud to say "she is not a "girls girl" and gets along much better with men" 🙄 there is only two of us on the team. This is gonna be a "fun" project 🤦🏻‍♀️


2 hour conference call while remote was an excellent way to listen while also cleaning out my pantry. #multitasking
