You'd be better off contacting them first, before clicking on the join button. These affiliate programmes expect to see an established service - allowing them to decide if the service is appropriate for their brand and product - after all, it's marketing people who handle this sort of stuff.
Not sure if you are aware of this, but the hotel and hostel business is dominated by a small number of B2B providers who you have probably never heard of. Ironically, I can't remember their names off-hand, but if you are serious, then consider approaching them in the long term.
I'd imagine immigrants aren't so laden with debt, so they have more freedom. Many countries don't charge their native students for higher education, those that do, are often subsidised and repayments are linked to their earnings. So if you earn a small salary, you pay nothing.
I don't imagine this being that large of problem this is with majors like computer science. By going to a public school and interning during the summer (maybe even part time during the year), you can easily come out debt free (if not positive).
At my alma matter (Berkeley), I imagine it was quite high. Not so much due to the high paying internships (which do help limit the burden), but because CS students on average tended to come from quite affluent households.
It depends on whether you work full time, part time, working for yourself or doing nothing. I imagine full time people try to maximise their spare time, so reduce their sleeping time and effectively turn into zombies.
By repeatedly covering this topic, and websites like this linking to the source, it's becoming a self-fulfilling prophecy. Essentially, TC is partly to blame and it reminds me of when they went after last.fm.
Yeah, Archos is the main company I can think of, at least in Europe. They pretty much pioneered the portable MP3 player market years before Apple. Archos' main problem is they like to control everything and aren't that good at finishing/refining their software, which is why the whole Rockbox scene started and produced amazing firmware for the early players.
That suggests his successors weren't very good at finishing the job he started. It's only natural for governments to become more and more corrupt as decades pass. When someone like that appears on the scene and reboots the system, their work should be acknowledged and refined before the corruption kicks in again.
This isn't a matter of corruption--it's an issue of public choice (or public economics, whichever you prefer).
What politician would scale back SS/Medicare when retirees are one of the largest voting blocks in America?
Governments also don't necessarily experience more corruption over time. Just look at overthrown dictatorships. If you said democratic governments, like the US, I'd agree with you, since the accumulation of wealth shifts power around.
This was my impression when I interviewed with them. I passed two phone screens and interviewed on-site, but my resume died in committee. The on-site interview was pretty brutal for me, because it was very heavy on CS theory and I interviewed "cold" (meaning I did no preparation beforehand).
I subsequently read Steve Yegge's tips on getting hired there:
London is so well integrated that there's little reason to use a taxi. That's why you have to call to book one, because most people use them for unusual trips, such as going to the airport with a lot of luggage, attending an event with formal wear etc. Much cheaper and quicker to use the tube.
