5 Things I’ve Emailed This Week

These are links I’ve emailed around to various friends, so thought I’d share them with y’all too.

As a woman, and feminist, and leader, in tech—from startups to literal IT—how could I not weigh in on this?

First, read: The google engineer’s memo, in its entirety.

Then, read: The google senior executive (YouTube CEO) response and/or Washington Posts’s commentary.

My take: Wojcicki is absolutely right: no is the only appropriate response. This man is clearly intelligent, well-reasoned, and completely misogynistic. It’s terrifying that he truly, deeply, rationally believes in these made-up biological differences—his examples are social, not scientific—instead of realizing that he’s part of and perpetuating the very socialization that created them.

    Oh my gosh, Brainal is HILARIOUS! And I love it.

    Also, Humor in Business is an awesome read. Humor in relationships is a good thing, too, which is why I love Brainal. Brainal in Business is good also, and sorely lacking sometimes.

    Can we publish both of these on the DailyHap?
