    I wanted to make a video about working together, education and computer science. I really love the fact that there were a ton of different opinions and political viewpoints in this room and yet everyone worked together to do something good. Ivanka is super smart and nice and we had a really fun off camera conversation about balancing parenting and work.

      This is what I like most about Mr. Destin. He's focusing only what is good for everyone.
      That when you said a journey to Mars requires a million lines of code somehow inspires me to pursue Computer Science. Thanks for giving me a good idea!

      The only reason ivanka trump is do this is because the white house has eroded womans rights and still thr trump family is not donating any money themselves, i do think that this progam could help. But the government is still hurting the education sector

      @mcseruler1 Yes this is unfortunately how economy historically works. Even the greatest scientists have and will be underappreciated because unfortunately appreciating the true contribution of work that labor does is not actually reflected in pay. This is actually a greater problem that leads into other global issues. First I would say that its really about the wealth gap, because will investors do put risk, its defiantly not sustainable to attain infinite wealth to one actor.Then there is the idea of trickle down, the idea that eventually wealth will trickle as things go to equilibrium, but the thing about social-wealth equilibrium is that it will go to equilibrium naturally simply based on ideas of fairness. However what is fair can be contested since its an opinion based on limited personal opinion... I could go on but in the end, I understand what you are trying to do with this video. Try to bring everyone to what is common, however everybody does has a separate agenda for why to push for something like this and while it may seem good some actors may simply be setting up for their next move which may actually bring everything several steps back.

      (I hope I made sense, if anything was unexplained, which I am sure I didn't properly do somewhere, Please do engage me in a civil conversation)

      You say that they are all listening to each other, and yes that is what an ideal free democracy should be. However they should also listen to each other even when they disagree not just when they are pushing the same ideas whether PR or not. Of course there are disinformation actors which intentionally make listening difficult.

            Destin, thank you for this video. I don’t post YouTube comments... like ever? This may be my first one? And it’s on quite an old video now? I just want you to know I’m very thankful for your position and voice on these complicated subjects. I find it hard to find middle-ground and valid discussion with people that hold wildly different political viewpoints to my own, because it’s becoming harder and harder to tell whether someone is entering those conversations in good faith.

            This video reminded me that even though it’s hard, this is a good and worthwhile labour that I need to be resilient in. Thank you, again.

It is called America in one room.. it was an attempt( quite successful) to get 526 people in one room and talking about the current political questions. It was amazing, I attended and it was an eye opener. Check it out

                                    Somehow the news missed this story.

                                    Trump has done plenty to bring a bad name.
                                    I don't like that.

                                    But if they can do news on the scandals then they should do news on the progress.

                                    Space Force would be awesome, but it came out of Trump's mouth so it just became a punchline.

                                    The news effects public opinion and politicians are more likely to avoid doing things when it becomes less popular.

                                    Even when the things would be good for everyone

                                        I understand why diversity is desired but I don't understand why it's important.
                                        if somebody does their job correctly it shouldn't matter if there's not enough Indonesian or Hawaii or black or Asian people.
                                        if you have an Indonesian or a black person or an Asian that is good at the job, yeah you should hire them but you shouldn't just hire them because they are Asian black or Indonesian.

                                        and I'm not trying to be facetious I genuinely don't understand why people are concerned with diversity it's almost like forced diversity.

                                        it's almost like a company saying "we have three jobs slots available but since 50 white people already work here we can't hire you. we want to maintain a diverse appearance not because we care that you're black because we want people to think that we care about black people"

                                                        I think it's really great. The big push for coding is a foreseeable future where most jobs will involve coding of some sort. These companies know that they need to grow their workforces more quickly to stay competitive. They won't be able to fill jobs on just those who had skills passed down by family. Either way, jobs working with technology pay very well and are fun and challenging.

Doesn't have to be coding, but at least force kids to learn about how computers work.

But to show that the government is actually doing something about minorities, they chose schools, and this topic for that matter. People don't need to learn to code at an early age to really do well enough in it to become employable.

                                                                  2) If this actually works and a lotta skilled coders spring up, then supply increases and exceeds demands thereby reducing the pay of future software engineers. Also, more diversity in a company means less taxes it has to pay. I'm not against diversity in the workplace, but the motives are disappointing.
                                                                  So, by shelling out a miniscule amount of money and a day of maybe one employee, each of those companies are gonna save millions and create a good name for themselves too.

                                                                  3) This is personal, but I feel that other professions are severely under paid despite having similarly skilled people. It saddens me that I want to work in materials science and engineering, (which I'm currently studying) which despite being the most fundamental of all engineering disciplines that has more impact on human civilisation than any other engineering discipline; it still pays so less. Many skilled people who could go into this field, don't, because they see their computer science friends who earn so much and are lured into that. The only diversity I want to fix is the one in pay to engineers.

The whole point of this video was to showcase an inarguable act of good without focusing on what parties are involved. I really appreciate your extremely neutral approach to this Destin but people will always be people.
