"This feature is a step in the right direction. Now if only the company would stop enforcing its discriminatory “real name” policy." Im confused, is this reporting or an opinion piece? Does pando do non-bias reporting or is it an opinion section?

I am shocked that not more people have commented on this considering how many people Andy has spent time helping. The Mill was a program that gave me the inspiration to go on as an entrepreneur, I didn't need "big funding", just a small "push" was all I needed. Andy gave me great advice once "Schedule time with potential customers and just talk to them about their problems and see what their day is like"....."And I said, "then I tell them about my product" and quickly he said "No! Thats "selling" to them, you want to "talk" to them. Try to understand the problem, but more importantly, try to understand 'them'"...... I will also miss his incredibly dry humor too, lol.....

I cant go to into deep explanation here, but you need bigger markets, everything that is created to help make a movie that you star in Hugh was made possible by the huge free market america has. Kind of like if you have more people you hang out with you get more "cultured" , the US consumers drive nicer cars than Japan and Germany, not because Japan and Germany don't prefer nicer cars, its because for every person you put behind a product you have to put in front of the product to "trade for support", you can not get the tools to these countries to build things if there is not a big free market and allowing the community for private ownership....

@boobah to program the machines, what youre referring to is "physical labor", but while you can physically can do what a doctor does, you dont have the "knowledge" and since when is it okay to say "my only contribution to society is simple physical labor" something that a 16 year old can learn in a month, stop taking jobs from 16 years olds.

1 year, 8 months ago on Hey Ayn Rand devotees: Startups and markets alone won’t fix our cities
"primary education, roads and airports, basic healthcare, laws", primary education is a disaster because government involvement, it makes NO sense to set people up in society to go to a gov school for 12 years then have them "work in the private market", if the end goal for the majority of society is to work in the private market, it makes more sense to have schooling in the private market to prepare for it, gov is incapable of keeping up with current trends, better to be an intern than go to college. Basic health care is not a private system now, its tied to your employer. Roads are different cuz its not a "mobile product" but a "geo product", there are not opportunities for competition cuz when you build a road from vegas to LA its not like you can have someone else do the same thing, as well as the science and knowledge to build roads hasn't really changed in the last 100 years compare to technology and also the "health care" industry. The more innovative the industry the more the gov should be involved in the marketplace.....

@AlanDouglas Youre just blatantly wrong about flash, as a flash developer myself, it was impossible to put flash on the iPhone, which is obvious cuz the iPhone is a mobile device with a smaller chip, flash runs on desktops with bigger chip performance, even when android adopted flash, they later took it back, flash wasnt built for mobile phones. And apple likes doing their own thing cuz they can support it, why waste time investing in something that someone else made, that can't guarantee the quality of it....
