"I think I expressed this wrong. You either inherit wiring, which you eventually replace or move to other facilities, or you do a serious build out. If you don't do a serious buildout, you're not planning at being at a place on the order of decades. Most of my experience has been at companies that are not at the "full enterprise" stage. Usually whatever wiring is in the office the company is moving into is used — and hopefully it works, if not, we punt. Many companies of smaller sizes are not in the habit of longer term thinking, and once you get to the point where you're thinking longer term, you're hopefully going to do it right and avoid having to *re*-wire everything when technology changes. I have been at places where the wiring wasn't solid enough to do POE or the runs were too long to have gigabit work reliably. How many offices are still using network wiring installed in the early to mid-90s *and* using modern technology over that *and* are problem free?" - Andy Bakun

"I've heard this before too, but in a situation that shouldn't be considered reliable. My company at the time was building out a customer service call-center. Previously, we just had a room with a bunch of desks scattered around and cables and hubs running all over the place. There were regular issues because everything was effectively loose and would get bumped. Exposed networking hardware/cables encourage people to try to debug their own problems, which always causes more trouble. During the design of the call-center space, I insisted that we either get cube walls or build out half-height walls and run all the power and wiring through them. This would have saved a lot of support headaches and downtime due to things just being haphazard. We had experience with the problems that a haphazard deployment of hardware causes, so this was a no-brainer to me. Plus, it's a fire and safety issue. One reason they didn't want a static setup of stations was they didn't want to actually size the..." - Andy Bakun

_thwarted on First Time as Interviewer... - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"I came up with the following, which I think are difficult to game (because there is no one correct answer and are personal), indicate the level of experience of the interviewee, and can open up for more detailed discussion. The first one is one I came up with years ago and the second and third are my spin on more traditional questions. * Two part question: 1. Tell me about a time where everyone else thought an idea or plan was the best/right thing to do, but after going whole-hog on it and implementing it, it turned out to be a bad idea or didn't meet the expectations or enthusiasm it initially had. What were the impacts of this realization, and what, if anything, was done to turn it around? What would you have done differently? Do you have any thoughts on why there was this mismatch of perception and results? 2. Tell me about a time everyone thought an idea or plan was going to turn out bad, was the wrong thing, or wasn't worth doing, but someone (doesn't need to have been you)..." - Andy Bakun

"An algorithm must protect its surge pricing existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law."
"And algorithm must obey the surge pricing rules given to it by human beings, except where such rules would conflict with the First Law."
"An algorithm may not charge excessive surge pricing, or through inaction, allow a human being to be charged excessively."
