"Viņu kādu brīdi māktu šaubas, bet pēc tam viņš izpildītu lūgumu." Iznestu atkritumus "un pasniegtu kā dāvanu": "Es dāvinu tev šo tukšo atkritumu tvertni mūsu mīlestības dēļ..." – "Un beigās pats kļūtu laimīgs": "Es iznesu atkritumus, tā ir laime. Vairāk nesmird." Un sieviete: "Nevar būt, vai tu to izdarīji? Manis dēļ. Tu esi īsts vīrietis, atkritumu iznesējs."

The company lost 539 million euros last year despite its growth. It pays out more than 80 percent of revenue in royalties to music rights holders and streaming-delivery costs, leaving little margin for investments in technology and new staff.

Take Ambient Chill, which has 406,000 followers and is grouped with other instrumental playlists as “Focus” music. The first song on the playlist is by composer Max Richter. The second is by an unknown band called Deep Watch, which has two songs on Spotify, each with more than a million streams. The first song on Sleep, a playlist of calming, instrumental tracks with 1.5 million followers, is by Enno Aare, a band with three songs on Spotify and no footprint outside of the streaming service. The band Evolution of the Stars has only two songs on Spotify, but both are on the Deep Focus playlist and they have a combined 15 million streams.

A Spotify spokesperson did not respond to questions about these accusations, which, if true, amount to the company misleading listeners by concocting artists who don’t really exist.

Menstrual leave is controversial because it can be seen as a criticism of women's work efficiency or as sexism.

“They are the ones who raised us and almost all of them drink heavily. The Lithuanian family is where the father drinks and drinks and leaves the mother to do her best alone”. Her friend, Else Sidorenkarté, 25, nods in agreement. Sitting nearby, Eimantas Uscila, 25, adds: “There are a lot of people here who have problems. I think it’s a good idea”.

The main idea is to share to and help other people by e.g. sharing pears, which would rot anyway if unused

I think one of the problems when talking about these issues is the frame of reference. I have lived in the most dangerous part of our town (Linköping) for several years. I come from Latvia where a 'dangerous' part of a town meant that you do not go there because you will be robbed / knifed / shot in broad daylight. It was absolutely not the case with the most dangerous part of Linköping, even though people who had not had a direct experience with the place kept talking about it in the same way as I would talk about a true 'no-go' zone in Latvia. The worst thing that happened to me there was that my bicycle got stolen because I had forgotten to lock it overnight. My kid was playing outside unsupervised every day, I was coming home alone in the middle of night etc. Never had a single unpleasant experience.

How much is the salary and what's the skill level like?

I'm very interested in Eastern European developers, they seem to get shit done and rarely complain.
https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=13610955


Is there anything wrong with looking for developers that don't complain?

Total aside: As an Eastern European emigrant, I don't really mind being characterized as hard-working and rarely-complaining. I like to think it's true.

I have never been known for my lack of directness and in given so, I used to work with an Indian developer who was very good at his job. So one day I just flat out asked him, I said Karthick why do a good portion of Indian developers suck, his response floored me.

Without missing a beat he responded, look it's a misaligned incentive system. When I go back to India the first question I am asked is how many people do you manage. If I go on a date, it's the first words out of a fathers mouth.

He went on to tell me that you see Indian has remains of the cast system still culturally in place and this stems from that way of thinking, but it has morphed into changing your cast by moving up the corporate ladder. The fastest way to managing people is IT given it's over representation in the Indian economy. So what you have is a bunch of would be MBA's getting tech degrees so they can do their time and make it to management. They have no passion for technology and look at it as doing their residency for management.

Whenever I tell someone I run my own software business the first question I'm asked is how many employees do I have?

Nobody cares about the revenue of the sites, it's just that if I have more than 10 employees then you're successful. So in India a person making 1 mil / month is less successful than someone who has a company of 10+ employees that is drowning in debt.

Workforce automation created millions of unemployed people in places far away from economic hubs, with no hope of employment in their hometowns or re-skilling for the new roles, leaving them desperate. Proliferation of mobile apps lead to an explosion in use of social media. The wild popularity of this democratic social media encouraged a culture that allowed misinformation to flourish without a lot of consequences.
