Obvious fact: You're not logged in.

Therefore, you're only seeing the tip of the iceberg of great discussion threads on this site. The frankest, most raw and truthful observations about employment and work life in the IT and engineering fields are in "members only" sections that are ONLY visible when you are registered and you log in.

If you're 35 or over, and work in IT, or are retired from IT, and you dislike the herd mentality and clueless, adolescent snobbery of forums such as "Hacker News", then you really should join this board. Why? Because you're too smart for Facebook. And everyone needs someone to gossip, commisserate, and chat with at their level.

Who we are:

A collection of IT, engineering and sciences professionals, in a variety of current circumstances with a variety of career backgrounds. Including:

  • System admins
  • Developers and programmers
  • Freelancers and "gig" entrepreneurs
  • Contract, job shopping and FTE-employed contract house IT workers
  • Web developers
  • Inventors
  • Artists and writers with tech backgrounds

This forum has its roots in the 1990s buildup of the IT field into what we know today and has been around since 2002. 10s of thousands of messages and threads about a variety of career, FTE, contract, and side gig issues and opportunities.

If you're as smart as the typical experienced IT professional, you have a critical mind that has a hard time staying engaged with pop culture and generic issues of the day. And you're WELL beyond the fanboy mentality of the young developer communities. Get some relief here.

Register on the board - your email is NEVER sold or provided to third parties. Then LOGIN FREQUENTLY to see new stuff daily. Note to long lost members: all politics have been marked as "opt in" only. You won't see anything political unless you ask for it.

If you're a smart person and not a stupid normie, you just understand implicitly that the current censorship wave affecting any conservative speech on social media is a bad thing.

If you are unaware of this and its sweeping consequences, or you wrongly believe that it's a good thing because the crazies are being muted, please do this - you don't deserve to live and you are one of many helping destroy democracy and the rule of law.



All in fun... not really... you have to be pretty dumb to not get it.

Top "alt" sharing and social sites:

Gab.Ai - a Facebook lookalike I described in the political section. Has an EXTREMELY strong white supremacist contingent, however.

Bitchute - a video sharing site. This uses Bittorrent like bandwidth sharing, so when you watch videos, you also help distribute video data to other online users.

Minds.com - Another social media site modeled on Facebook but secure. Just go there and read the FAQ.

Steemit.com

Many of them offer the users and content creators crypto currency payment just for participating.

Post any observations or experiences to this thread, please.
