Heres a riddle:
What’s the phone number of the office from where this picture was snapped?
NOT the building in the picture…but where the photo was taken from.
Fast Answer: the Google offices in the Warsaw Financial Center at Emilii Plater 53, Warsaw, Poland. The phone number is +48 22 207 19 00 and this photo is taken from the 10th floor.
How he found the answer, posted by Daniel M. Russell and in a separate post, His Google search tips, from a speech.
The difference is, with risks theres a backup plan in case of failure. With a gamble the loss is irrevocable.
Its a useful distinction.
A lot of companies are complaining that there is a skill gap, that good workers are hard to find, and that the education system is failing us and so on.
This guys take is that companies blame everything for the problem, except their possible role in it.
So If all companies are paying market rates, and still facing a skill gap, then clearly they’re not paying enough. Companies are being short sighted by wanting to pay less, and wanting more skills.
Thats not how the market economy works.
“There are two extraordinarily beautiful things happening in this iPhone video by Patrick Colpron. The first is a spectacular six-sail kite designed and flown by Steve Polansky, and second is a heart-achingly wonderful song called Lighthouse by Patrick Watson. What a perfect moment in time, sort of an impromptu video poem.”
