'Return to Office' declared dead


Of course

A couple years ago I quit my job after they changed requirement from work from home to working in the office every other week at the other side of the country.

This year my current job has started demanding people come into the office 2-3 days a week even after they said in the job interview that it was remote only. I am currently interviewing for new jobs.

There's always a shortage of Linux etc engineers like myself, why should I work in an office when I can do the entire job remotely from home?

As it prepares to abandon its on-prem server products, Atlassian is content. Users? Not so much


Good luck in sensitive data situations

In any defence or government project that uses atlassian products good luck trying to push them towards a cloud only option.

They will *NEVER* adopt SaaS/cloud if it means storing the work off premises. Any project requiring security clearance will never, ever get stored off prem.

Elon Musk's Twitter moves were 'reaffirming' says Reddit boss amid API changes


Re: Reddit's CEO doesn't realize

I've seen his mindset in others. From what I understand he only made $10 million from selling out to conde nast.

What I think is happening is he wants a big payout from an IPO, he wants to be as rich as all the other silicon valley types. He doesn't care if he burns down reddit as a result, as long as he can get that IPO payout.

Like a lot of his sort (Musk, Huffman etc) think they're geniuses when all they really are, are people who got lucky, profited off the work of others or inherited wealth.

Huffman himself is well known to be a prepper and thinks in some doomsday he'd be a leader. Rather than, you know dead within the first five minutes.

This is a literal quote from Huffman (I am not kidding, it's from the new yorker):

“Being around other people is a good thing. I also have this somewhat egotistical view that I’m a pretty good leader. I will probably be in charge, or at least not a slave, when push comes to shove.”

Says it all, doesn't it?
