The problem with programming and diversity is exactly what the Google internal shitlord letter pointed out: you need high intelligence and the capability to think in abstract terms and plan in advance. White Caucasian and Southeast-Asian males are most likely to have these attributes while blacks should be quite a rare sight in the tech world.
But I do often point out that I write both science fiction and fantasy. It’s just that the science fiction is usually titled ‘technical proposal’ and the fantasy is titled ‘budget proposal.’

The controversial memo broke the firm’s code of conduct, Google’s chief executive Sundar Pichai said on Monday in an email to employees.

The memo, shared widely at the weekend, suggested there were fewer women at Google due to biological differences.

Mr Pichai said the text crossed the line due to it "advancing harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace”.

I'm shocked to my very core.

There's rumors of Google Higher ups going on racist tirades about white people and wanting them to know nothing but poverty and suffering for eons for all the wrongs that they did to the human race. They essentially seem to believe in the need to pay for the crimes of your ancestors by being eternally shamed and barred from success.

There has to be videos out there somewhere google has cameras all over the place.

For people who claim to be so advanced, the desire for something like a feudal honor system seems so archaic.

I really hope trump torpedoes the inner circles of the tech industry by opening it up to more jobs. You're witnessing a stagnation of competition which is why companies like Google feel they can act as supreme overlord.

The brony/furry/whatever the fuck is the only one with a somewhat tangible job description and even that's lofty at best. Container Engine coder is at least something.

As for the others, I have no idea what they do.

"Programmer"
"Site reliability engineer"
"SWE"
"Customer Reliability Engineering"
"Technical Infrastructure"
"Go on Cloud"
"Diversity and Inclusion"

I have no clue what those things are or what they actually work on. All those titles scream "cubicle nigger" which there's nothing wrong with. Just fucking say "cube nigger" for fuck sake. The world needs us cube niggers. Shit, I'm a cube nigger who needs another cube nigger right now. The corner offices are all taken. What nobody needs is a cube nigger with a corner office ego, which is what those made up titles suggest.

I'm currently working with co-workers to hire a JavaScript programmer who has any familiarity with a specific investment management platform. We've all noticed that the more ~*unique*~ and !-important-! the job title they've crafted up for themselves sounds... the shittier they are. People with lame-ass titles such as "Query Scheduler" or "Database Migration Assistant" show that they've picked something specific and stuck with it, as opposed to being bounced around from project to project.

"Custom Cloud Architect" = you've been bounced around like a hooker on New Years. You're present during UML reviews, but you only exist there to drink a cup of coffee and eat a muffin. You have a shitty little line of code in every script but own nothing and command no projects. Even if you can say you're the owner/admin/maintainer of one tiny, simple little cog in the system, at least that cog is you. "Ok, so one of this candidate responsibilities is making sure the script starts at 7:30am and stops at 5:30pm every day, except on weekends and holidays... That's something we can work with."

If another "technical person" can't understand your fancy job title, you're not a super special unique alphanerd... You're just a douche.

I'm shocked to my very core.

When the story first broke about the "manifesto" I thought that the best thing to do in this situation, from Google's perspective, would be to (at most) issue a company statement generally disagreeing with wrongthink without being too aggressive, and then try to move on and get everybody to forget about it to limit the spread of crimethrought. Don't fire the guy, even if you know who he is, because then you risk creating a martyr. Then I figured they'd be dumb and angry enough to do just that and, well, here we are.

How many new Nazi shitlord MRAPUAKKK Alt-Right RethugliKKKans do you think this little episode produced? Because it sure as hell won't win hearts and minds for the left. They never seem to consider this at all, or if they do it gets dismissed out of hand BECAUSE THEY'RE RIGHT, DAMN IT.
Quote from: George Lincoln Rockwell
The Conservatives have a slogan which I think is despicable and defeatist: "It's better to be dead than red." And the Commies and Liberals have a slogan which is even worse, it's treason, they say: "It's better to be red than dead." We say this: "You don't have to be Red and you don't have to be Dead. Not dead. Not Red. Dead Reds"

I've never seen more troons in a single place than i did during my interview at Google; I think it's their way of getting good diversity numbers while still hiring people who actually know the job (and are presumably worth the extra hassle).

In some ways it's enjoyable that the crusade for equality has been circumvented by men just becoming women.

Sooner or later their incompetence catches up with them. They will likely suffer the something awful effect soon and start having people leak, leave, and defect. I switched to duckgo a while ago and I suggest you dump google as well.

If the rumors are true there's a bunch of unhinged google troons who want to use Google's collected data on users to dox trump supporters/suspected fascists/no fuck you dad. Essentially they must be shamed out of society and become the new perma-underclass and be forced to live off welfare for generations in order to atone for their racist ways.

Essentially we're back to getting people fired from their jobs because someone got their feefees hurt online.

However if america is as racist/misogynistic as they say why the fuck would their employers care about said comments to begin with?

Site and customer reliability... who knows what they exactly do.

They set up mirrors and standby servers to ensure the site doesn't go 404 if the application crashes or the network becomes congested.

Sorta. The infrastructure team is closer to the hardware side, setting up the physical machines and networks that will host the software. The operations teams, of which SREs are a flavor, set up the software tools and maintenance scripts that ensure those machines stay in sync with each other and gracefully cover each other's back in case of failures or load spikes.

Mind you, these distinctions only really come into focus for very large enterprises. At the smaller scale, you either split the maintenance jobs between whatever you call your coders and IT janitors, or (more likely) you just rent a few gigahertz from Jeff Bezos, tick the Auto Scaling box, and call it a day.

I just discovered duckduckgo yesterday and it's great. It's unfortunate that for smartphones you're pretty much limited to Apple and Google. I've always stuck with the Nexus phones because I like stock Android and I was planning on getting the Pixel 2 when it comes out, but fuck giving Google even more money.

I've been using Duckduckgo as my main  search engine for a few years and most of the time I'm quite happy with it.  Every now and then it doesn't find something and I use google, but it's pretty rare.

Ive been using Duck Duck Go since they celebrated that Jap terrorist like 18 months ago with their "doodle". The one they called a freedom fighter because she hated whitey.

I wish there was a good alternative to gmail though.
