II. Facial Recognition Technology
III. Border Search and Immigration Surveillance

A recruiter email seriously pitches "founders are serial entrepreneurs" as a point of pride… Do they want me to have the same attitude towards code? Just throw something together and then move on to the next job right before the system collapses?
Oh wait… It actually explains a lot about modern software!
