Some interesting developments in the case of James Damore, the Google Senior Software Engineer who now is a former Google Senior Software Engineer. He was fired after Google reacted badly to Damore’s memo challenging explanations for the relative lack of women in software engineering.

The memo was grossly misrepresented as being anti-diversity...

The controversy regarding Google (former) employee James Damore may have peaked, but it’s not going away.

Most of the mainstream and tech media coverage has been completely dishonest. As mentioned in my first post about the diversity memo Damore wrote, the media was describing the memo and Damore as being “anti-diversity.” That...
