When you’re writing code, you’re writing it primarily for other people and only secondarily for the computer. For any given problem, there’s generally a myriad of solutions that produce the desired output, with varying degrees of computational efficiency, but, with few exceptions, the optimal choice is the one that’s clean, clear, and easy for human beings to reason about.

You’ve been thinking about coding for a while and, these days, it seems like everyone is learning how to do it. You carve out some time on a Saturday afternoon, sit down at your computer, and decide that today is your day: you’re going to embark on a journey to become a programmer. Now, you stare blankly at the screen.
Today, Bloomberg continued riding on the anti-millennial bandwagon and published a new post entitled “A Quarter of Millennials Who Live at Home Don’t Work – Or Study.” For the past several years, we’ve seen a growing trend of media outlets opting for sensationalized headlines that drive clicks, shares, and comments, rather than ones that seek to genuinely inform their audience. I decided to investigate whether it is, in fact, true that 1/4th of millennials who live at home don’t work or study – here’s what I learned.
There seems to be a prevalent myth that, when it comes to GMOs, Monsanto, and related topics, there is an “information gap,” that is, that these issues simply haven’t been studied enough, or that they haven’t been studied in any truly comprehensive or long-term manner. The Internet has become a sort of “Wild West” when it comes to information: Anyone can publish anything they like. Sensational headlines trend. Dense scientific papers don’t. Conflicts of interest can be hard to identify. Charlatans, snake oil peddlers, quacks, and people who don’t realize that anecdotes don’t qualify as evidence, have free reign to produce articles that prey upon some of your deepest fears and appeal to the less-than-logical elements of the human brain, leading you to make potentially fatal decisions.

There’s no question that the Department of Defense is an egregiously wasteful organization. Whether you’re looking at the big picture (like occupying a country for more than a decade for no good reason) or zooming in a bit (to local recruiting offices, individual projects, or even military advertising), there’s no shortage of waste to be found. In a country where 610,042 people are homeless, the outstanding student debt balance comes in at more than $1.2 trillion, more than 16 million children (22% of all children in the country) live in families with incomes below the federal poverty level, and millions of people can’t afford health insurance, surely there is no shortage of worthy causes for taxpayer dollars. However, the Department of Defense is seemingly unconcerned about education and child poverty – because it continues to burn taxpayer dollars in some of the most outlandish ways possible.
