    I would love for a similar "research to public" pipeline for other types of research, but I haven't quite worked out how that would uh

    work?

    Having interviewed STEM job applicants I can say that while there is no shortage of STEM graduates, there is a shortage of good STEM graduates.

    My company isn't even trying to underpay or offer shit benefits and they've already accepted that they won't be getting google and apple level talent. And yet still, candidate after candidate cannot answer simple questions.

    The ones that can answer are typically swimming in offers and take whatever tickles their fancy.

    I had a great job in college where I sat in a computer lab and occasionally helped students to understand their programming homework

    The interview had been: Can you explain the difference between passing by reference and passing by value? Oh, good! When can you start?

    I think the US has a pretty okay system overall.

    Exploratory research where we discover novel new mechanisms of action and interesting new families of drugs are funded mostly through government grants.

    Once they uncover a new interesting avenue for development, private companies take that research and refine it into marketable products.

    We have a number of failure points, the biggest one is that the grant money for exploratory research has declined as a share of GDP since the Bush Jr. administration. But for the most part this system actually works.

    my dad is currently leading a small company that's doing exactly this

    it's been interesting hearing about the whole process

    Best health outcomes for most people leads to mediocre devices. People on the edges don't get served either way because we don't have infinite money. At least with private profit motive research we have some drivers. The madcap terminator leg funds the medium-grade thing that barely ambulatory people can get so they don't go completely wheelchair bound.

    I thought it was the opposite, where the basic every day stuff like giving someone in a wheelchair a "grabber claw" and charging $100 for it pays for the terminator leg?

    Also, if you call me and I say I am working on a deliverable and to try to call me "late next week," responding "I'll call you tomorrow" is going to just piss me off. And then telling me "I'll try you on Monday" when Monday is a holiday is also going to piss me off. When I say "late next week" on a fucking Thursday, I don't mean "tomorrow" and I don't mean "Monday" either, you goose.

    I just got off a call with two salesdudes. There were two of them because they work in two different product families for the same company.

    The first guy was chill, asked me what we needed from the product, addressed my concerns, gave me a straight answer on price.

    The second guy was one of those salespeople who's like "WHEN DO YOU THINK YOU'LL BE PURCHASING?" "WHAT ARE THE NEXT STEPS IN YOUR COMPANY TO SIGN A QUOTE?" "ARE THERE ANY OTHER DECISION-MAKERS?"

    and i'm like... dude... chill... humping my leg and slobbering on me isn't how you get my company's money

    I have a fun story like this - will share it in the next chat perhaps as I have some stuff to finish right now.
