No, Google doesn't care what school you went to if you are a programmer, they just look at your code samples and ask you logic puzzels. The comment about top 10 schools was mine and they apply expressly to non-technical majors. It's not that hard to get a job at Google these days if you are a decent programmer - they are hemorrhaging talent to startups and can't hire fast enough because of *gasp* a shortage of engineers.
A) Have you been in the position of trying to hire an engineer recently? It's downright impossible in the current environment.B) What?

When a single worker becomes more effective at a job, his colleagues become obsolete and they need to switch professions or risk being unemployed. As I have said before companies are generally very reluctant to fire people who are not needed anymore. There's a social...

It's a bad idea to use it as your primary monitor, if that's what you are asking.
A lot of people work in winner-take-all type industries. The incentive is to work like crazy because anything less and you end up with basically nothing to show for it.
Best poast Piob has ever madeIf you are making 150, your direct report is making 500 and his boss might be making an order of magnitude more. It's pretty easy to feel like a peasant. People are not perfectly rational, and they tend to compare themselves to other around them.
We have added improvements to the shirt on every batch based on feedback from customers, issue reports, and our own testing. One of the complaints we got on occasion was the neck stitching breaking, so we changed the way the collar was sewn and added a reinforcement stich. CalTex, I can take care of it over PM.On the subject of fall releases, here's what we got in the pipeline.Oxford cloth button-downsI just saw the samples and I am super excited about them. All the...
