A new episode of the DevNews podcast is here!
S4:E7 - Freenode’s Mass Resignations, NVIDIA’s Less Crypto-Friendly Chips, Twitter’s Crop Algorithm Investigation, and Remote Employers Excluding Colorado
In this episode, @saronyitbarek and I covered...
- Companies excluding the state of Colorado from remote opportunities due to the Equal Pay For Equal Work Act
- NVIDIA making their graphics cards less desirable for cryptocurrency miners
- Twitter’s report on its investigation into its cropping algorithm, which many people criticized as having a racial and gender bias.
Then, we chatted with James Eaton-Lee, former Staff Developer at Freenode, and current Chair of Libera Chat. James explained how Libera Chat was created in response to entrepreneur and Korea's Crown Prince, Andrew Lee, taking control of Freenode, which led to a mass resignation of many of its developers. Fascinating stuff!
Enjoy S4E7! Can you believe that next week's episode is our season finale? 😱
