Well, I'm very disappointed this morning in the slant of this. Just a couple days ago we had an article that proposed that we probably need to allow more 'failure' to promote learning and improving our product. Today, suddenly we have to throw up the 'diversity' challenge when there is a technology or software problem.
Oh, how I wish we could move past having to find the same old complaint of lack of diversity and get on with making things work better. I don't believe I EVER saw the development of a system that was totally right the first release.
Steve, not to pick on you, but to make my point, in the years I've been involved with this community and seen your photograph, I don't think I EVER had a thought regarding the tone of anyone's skin or their ethnicity. Now suddenly I will forever be aware of your skin tone.
Perfect example of the concept of 'self-fulfilling prophecy'. Should have left out the links to the diversity articles. Truth is that I don't give a sh!t what color your skin is. Please don't you all get mad at me for this.
One of the best days of my IT career was the day I told my boss if the problem was so simple he should go fix it himself.
