What happened to old fashioned flame and tech wars online?
Now every discussion online(not only here) seems to be about compensation, new VC hipster products like AirBNB for dogs or SWJ inclusive stuff at some company
I miss the old days when you read Slashdot and an article about a new Java release would get 400 comments how much Java sucks or how anyone ever could work for IBM or Sun. Now people are gladly working at companies like Palantir or Facebook that is totally against the typical silicon valley hacker philosophy of open source and rational debate.
Seems like the new (5-10 years since) type of students are more career and product types than enjoying those nerdy discussions, what do you think?
Look at this video with Steve jobs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FF-tKLISfPE , never saw someone asking Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos such stuff
