    2. Why Learning To Code Won't Save Your Job

      Why Learning To Code Won't Save Your Job

      Looking for job security in the knowledge economy? Just learn to code. At least, that’s what we’ve been telling young professionals and mid-career workers alike who want to hack it in the modern workforce—in fact, it’s advice I’ve given myself.

      Whisper's Master Of Content Moderation Is A Machine

      When people are granted anonymity on the Internet, does that make them more likely to behave in a way that's sincere, constructive, and uplifting, or trollish, disgusting, or even dangerous? You could spend hours debating that question, but one thing is pretty clear: even if the nice anonymous people dramatically outnumber the sketchy ones, even a few troublemakers can ruin it for everybody.

      Why A Negative Work Culture Is Better Than No Culture At All

      Organizational culture is meant to be a set of values, mission, and goals that are unique to each company. The quote "culture eats strategy for breakfast," usually attributed to Peter Drucker, is often cited to show how integral culture is to a company's success.

      VR hardware makers seem to know that, for now anyway, it's in their mutual interest not to tear each other down. "The attention Oculus brought to VR was great," says Richard Marks, who heads up VR efforts for Sony. "The fact that there are multiple VR platforms all coming to market, that is really good for the timing of VR, because it does create more of a critical mass.

      4 Ways You're Unknowingly Stressing Out Your Coworkers

      One of the biggest sources of work-related stress has little to do with the usual culprits, like email overload or the modern workplace's myriad distractions. It comes from the way we ask each other for help—or rather, from the fact that we often don't ask the right way, or even at all. Many of us want to give our colleagues a hand but wind up contributing to their stress rather than relieving it, and vice versa. Instead of being helpful, we sometimes come up short or even make things worse.
