I'm glad you brought up graduation statistics - because along with application statistics (to account for those not applying for the role from university) these are the only stats that matter as a comparison to show bias at the hiring level rather than a systematic lack of a gender or group being interested in the field in the first place.
Here in Australia plenty of companies are aiming for 50/50 with graduation rates of women in Engineering at ~20%. You seem to think 20% at HnDev's company is bad - why? If it was here that would be representative?
@root - it sounds like you are in the US; thankfully I don't think this sort of thing would occur here in Australia or at least your attempts to claw back what you were owed would be successful.
++ for Hanselman imo
These really aren't equivalent at all though; it is a terrible quote. I can feel I have nothing to hide now and will never have anything to hide. On the other hand even if I don't have anything to say now, I'm sure everyone would like to be able to say something in future.
It's almost insinuating that people want to have the ability to hide things even if they don't have any they want to hide now...
@AshesOfTheSun Yeah, unfortunately it's the same as a lot of these trick questions in that you just need to find the extra dimension to get information from - in this case what you haven't weighed rather than just what you have.
If the other balls are all the same weight the following is the solution:
1) Weigh 3 v 3 with 2 left over
2) If the scales are balanced, weigh the 2 left over by themselves to find the lightest. If the scales are not balanced, take the lighter set of 3 and take 2 of the 3 to weigh.
3) If the scales tip towards one of the two you are weighing, take the lighter one, if the scales are balanced take the one you didn't weigh.
