Elegy: way south: A politics thread in the geek tab?/more likely than you'd think.Ewww.Waiter, there's some social justice in my geek tab.I'd like to send this back and speak with your manager, please.
farkeruk: I was involved in some interviewing recently. Of a dozen people we saw, two were women. One was really good, we offered her a job, based on our original ad (and at the top value), but she turned as down as not enough, so, you know, thanks for wasting our farking time. The other was quite good, but we saw better candidates at the time.
EngineerAU: Ladies and Gentlemen, exhibit #242453 why third wave feminism continues to be a terrible self parody. Inequality has been a constant through most of history, Google Doodles are merely a reflection of this, not a cause. Since honoring the living comes with all kinds of potential downsides, Google's only real choice here to satisfy the revisionists is to stop honoring historical figures. More embedded games (but not Pac-Man, that'd be sexist), less humans.
EvilEgg: There you go, if you randomly pick from famous historical figures, chances are you are going to get a dude, because they wrote history.
