- The game of RSUs Guys, Request you all to think of the big picture here and keep aside your caps of bias/affiliation for once. I genuinely think that this game about RSUs given out as a part of compensation is about to end. Think of it-it is not even real money-just stocks diluted of the actual shareholders who pu

- How can so-called "scrum masters" unblock or coach anything for devs? they advertise themselves the ability to "speed up team delivery", "eliminate technical roadblocks", "coach developers".

- Isn't Goog undervalued? Goog has YouTube which is atleast worth the same as Netflix. Ads network : 10 times that of FB. Google Cloud: Still small but a lot of growth potential and this market has place for 3 big players. Productivity tools : GDocs on web is much better than office 365. Waymo: Could be big.
