    I mean, load time wise? I never notice FOUT if I am using a small amount of fonts with google. but even with just 1 font I am always seeing FOUT with typekit.

    Also with google you just copy + paste the code really quick, typekit needs permissions and all that. So google saves time there too

    I'm not having these issues with the LG ud-88 4k display. Using a late 2013 MacBook Pro 15" and it runs perfectly for me, no up or downscaling, just native 4k

    The 2016 MBP was designed to use 2 of these displays. The 2017 MBP hasn't been announced yet, so I am assuming you have a 2016, if it's a 15" it should run these displays

    Just a note, I am running the lg USB-c 4k display with my late 2013 retina 15" MacBook Pro with no issues over display port.

    And I love it

    It wasn't necessarily his original argument. Gender diversity shouldn't be factored into agency selection... hiring the best human for the job should. Irrelevant of gender, sex, race, religion, etc.

    I think the broader point Rakesh was trying to make (I will admit he failed somewhat) is that hiring for the sake of diversity just causes agencies to hire "token" women, and "token" African-American employees so they look better. Which is not only offensive, its also not a solution.

    Andy's second argument explains this:

    Rakesh: Thanks. My question: for example, when only 18% of women graduate in CS why should we aim for 50% of the recruited to be women?

    Andy: because it's the right thing to do.

    His argument turned into: Hire women because diversity. which isn't a good solution to this problem.

    But then again, twitter had never really been a place for long form, and civil, debates.

    DN is more than a majority male, thats another issue for another time.

    if one thing holds true on the internet, DN Included, its that everyone has to correct everyones opinions, not just women's opinions, everyones. yes I fully understand the irony of what I just said, moving on.

    Everyone gets critiqued, and has their point torn apart. Many of them, much worse than this thread I might add. And many of those written by men.

    This thread isn't an attack on diversity, or women. its a dissection of the article.
