these are venture funded companies that haven't gone public.. the readers of wsj are brokers that might take them public, investors that might invest pre-ipo, vcs, pension fund managers that might be investing in vc funds, private equity guys looking to acquire companies.

This strikes me as quite a dangerous feature. Cars accelerating slowly is a great safety feature. Maybe they could relabel this feature the "Suge Knight" feature since it will make parking lots and other areas of surging cars a whole new theatre.
Summary: Germany is opening up A9 Autobahn for testing self driving cars. Previously, German companies couldn't test on the public roads due to regulations. German car companies don't want to depend on Google for autonomous driving technology.
In 1991, I worked for Daimler (Mercedes) in their Advanced Vehicle Research group. We had an abandoned section of Autobahn a few miles outside Stuttgart available for our use, but we also had authorization to test on public highways in autonomous mode. We just had to have a driver seated and paying attention, and had a red panic button on the center console. Pushing the panic button reverted the vehicle control to fully manual. (This was in a large bus-like vehicle, based on the Vario platform, a little larger than a current Sprinter.)
So, while we couldn't test in no-humans onboard mode, we logged hundred of miles in fully autonomous mode.
Technical notes: the programming language was Occam. I'd have to look through my notes to see what the network size was, but the vision system alone (my main focus, no pun intended) was in the low double figures of processors, with most of those being dedicated to variance calculations to find prominent horizontal edges. I seem to recall we processed the video stream at 15 frames per second by the time I left.
Rather than checking out..... consider spending time trying to get mentored by the new managers. Think of the way Larry Page was mentored by Eric Schmidt. Also spend time reading about how to manage a large team.
Also consider... do you want to manage a large team? Or do it again from the ground up?
I agree. In the old days there were tons of crap time tracker apps. I suspect that as they didn't make much money and as they had to pay the yearly fee, the dev shut them down. Now there are only about a dozen fairly good apps.
one struggle i had was what to make free and what to charge for. i thought about making the app free and charge only to export data, but i felt like people might feel duped by not realizing and then be forced to pay when they thought it was free. the plan with limiting the # of entries makes way more sense.
