I'm happy I ended up at a tech company by the beach where weed is part of the corporate culture and cucking isn't.   :stonk:

I've seen some of the more lurid parts of that lawsuit, and holy shit, utter lunatics have power at a company that services a considerable chunk of the internet and shits on rational people who don't think they are building-kin and don't think it's just dandy to know a co-worker is fucking your spouse while you're on the clock.

I don't expect Google to fall, but I hope this is very, very embarrassing at the very least.

The greatest power you have is the power of yourself. If you give that up willingly? You Become Goon.

one of the biggest criticisms against damore's memo was that it was unprofessional to share it on an internal company network, which i completely agree with, but given the context of what goes on at google's internal posting and cultures it was extremely mild.

no one expects this is going to ruin or destroy google, but if this sticks i think we're going to start seeing a shift in silicon valley corporate cultures. those posts are straight up embarassing and confirm every stereotype about millenials.

iirc he posted it to some group that was meant to be for controversial ideas or something like that?  while everyone could access it, it wasn't like it was put in the general forum, if my memory serves.

also if the level of vitriol and mobbing that went on in the gbs thread is at all an indication of just how tribalised political views are in the us now...  i hope it doesn't presage a similar shift where i live but know that is probably a forlorn hope.

Nah, he wrote the 'memo' as his feedback for the inclusion and bias training workshop he had to go to.

He posted to some internal, open libertarian group to get feedback on it, then submitted it to the organizers of the workshop as well as HR etc.  Then someone leaked it to gizmodo or whomever.  The complaint lays out the chain of events

This may not sink google but it will have greater consequences for Silicon Valley. Project viritas will see to that.

yep, sorry, you're right; i was going off memory from when the firing happened.

long shot, but are there any california employment lawyers here to comment on his labour code violation prospects?  i had a quick look through the precedents but couldn't see anything too strong in either direction.

Wanna hurt Google?

Use Brave. Set your default search engine to Duck Duck Go. Check out Basic Attention Token, which is the brainchild of Internet genius and notorious hater of gays Brendan Eich. If it takes off, Google will lose a ridiculous amount of money.

An uncorroborated but plausible interpretation:

Quote
I think you fail to understand who is actually in charge of large companies. The shareholders, who actually care about profit, are not in control of most tech companies. In the case of Google/Alphabet, the founders are in control, and have ceded day to day management to Sundar. All Sundar cares about is nothing happening that will cause an issue that rises to the level of the board. His job is to prevent problems rising to the level where Larry needs to stop playing with his kids/flying cars, and come to work. Most of Google's actions in these cases can be explained in this light. Sundar unwisely went on holiday just when the Damore things happened, so Susan got to make a decision. Had Sundar been in the office, he would have done the "right" thing, and told everyone to take a break, given Damore a reasonable severance in exchange for a non disparagement agreement, and made everything go away. Susan did not do this, as it is in her interest to make trouble for Sundar, in a way that he cannot argue is insubordination.

Companies like this have the principles of their leaders, not a general desire to make money. Most of these leaders just want things to continue without fuss. They are very wealthy, and want to remain so, and change is their enemy.

... Why?

Quote
It is in her interest as she wants to be CEO, as do all the SVPs. It is best if he cannot blame her, which he cannot as every one from the New York Times down says she was right. Susan was the person who fired Damore, when she should have just told him to shut up, take a leave, and make everyone quiet down. Had Sundar been in town, that is what he would have done. The result of her actions is to make Google and Sundar look bad, while making herself look good.
