I See Good Things : 12/15/16

Latest installment of the I See Good Things where I share interesting things I’ve found.

TECH LEADERS MEET TRUMP

Capability is not synonymous to general intelligence. In fact the more capable one is at any given thing quite often it reduces their ability to be good at others. With some fields the mentality to focus on the tasks that make one great can highly reduce their ability to relate to general people, then you add the insulating echo chamber effect that the wealth and success could bring, and you see these filthy examples of self righteous virtue signalling.

Some may also just not be that smart. Success isn’t entirely due to intelligence, but it helps.

On to another topic.

ABORTION’S EBB-AND-FLOW

Recently I have had lengthy debates and conversations about the topic of abortion. In doing so it led me to research, read that the abortion rate in New York City was 60% of the birth rate and found this article from New York Magazine. It is an informative read about the long history of abortion and legislation around it. It is not surprising to see the importance that New York City has played and continues to in the saga of abortion. I keep struggling to understand why it took me so long to see this as an issue involving multiple lives and not just the female that is pregnant. Anyway, do give it a read.
