Does this mean they'll finally understand why the electorate doesn't like so much of their platform?  They need all the help with that they can get.

Eisenhower warned us "beware of the military-industrial complex".

He forgot about the intelligence-social network complex.

Does that mean giving GOPers Google Glasses with mace dispensers that shoot directly in their eyes the moment they attempt to post anything racist/homophobic/pro-rape/sexist?

At Google? That might not have been a very good career decision. DNRTA.

I didn't Nazi that coming...

Google bus taxes are like Kristallnacht, says venture capitalist in Wall Street Journal

Yes, proposals to tax the richest one percent at a rate closer to what they were paying under Ronald Reagan or to charge giant tech companies a small fee for using city bus stops for their private shuttles are like the Nazis. Except they're not. Really, not even close.

The medication for parasites has started working, poor one percent.

In order for any technology to work you have to construct a reality based model and test your assumptions against the results.

I suspect the GOP may not be ready for this part.

Oh they understand. They don't care. The electorate is not what elects them.

"Don't be evil" is obviously a (trite and easily-ignored) corporate slogan, not an individual slogan.

Maybe she's joining the GOP as a fifth column.  I'd read that book/watch that movie when it came out.

Last month, [Voter Gravity] announced it had secured $2 million in investments and also added to its board Matt Schlapp, a former Bush White House political director, who had lobbied for Koch Industries and helped launch the RNC-affiliated voter database Data Trust, which has struggled to gain traction.


Oh yeah, I remember him. Good ol' Number Six.

If the GOP could intelligently interpret data, they wouldn't hold half the ridiculous policy positions they do regarding climate change, healthcare, immigration, reproductive rights, military foreign intervention, etc. About the only thing they've got the math right on is vote suppression, and that's a dick move anyway.

So you're telling me that all  the unskewing is not in fact an attempt to intelligently interpret data.  I thought all of that extra math counted for something.

Actually it seems to be the lefties here who are doing the screaming due to the 'betrayal' of someone from an industry that they thought they owned body and soul. Maybe you can shove some of that cream down their pieholes before their shrillness starts shattering computer monitors across the land.

Point out one post previous to your last featuring a lefty "screaming" due to betrayal. Please at least attempt to make your lies halfway plausible, it's insulting to the rest of the thread not to.

Eh, she's an exec, not a techie. I'd be more worried if it was someone with actual talent - you know, a producerand not just one of the leeches from Management.

Bingo.  But techies live in a hard world of reality, so they're not predisposed to believing in the fantasyland that is GOP dogma.

I'm all about the GOP getting better info tech, it might help them escape the echo chamber. But I do find it unseemly that an exec in charge of public sector tech (selling technology services to federal state and local governments) is getting politically involved.

Every time I see that picture, I never fail to be amazed at the consistently douchey, punchable faces of everyone in it... including the chick.

Every single one of them looks like the co-worker you hope doesn't find out about the plan for everyone to meet up for drinks after work because they'll suck every bit of fun out of the evening.

They're a bunch of trust-fund-baby GOP staffers paid to block the recount effort of the 2000 presidential election by storming the location as if they were a grassroots uprising of concerned citizens.

Maybe she got tired of protest #43251 about the gall of Google paying their employees enough to raise rents in SF or giving them fancy rides that non-employees can't has.
