Is the tides turning? Is google starting to value shitlords opinion on marketing?

The smarter companies must realize by now that SJWs are notorious for demanding change to something they weren't going to consume in the first place. It's just about ruining it for the original audience as a weird power play.

An Indian dude is upset that Apple is hiring idiots through discriminatory hiring practices.

It is no secret that Apple's intern program is one of the most competitive and well paying amongst the industry. As such, one would expect that with such a broad talent pool, Apple interns would be absolutely the best in their class.

Unfortunately, I have personally experienced this to not be the case: Apple covets its 50% under-represented new hire rate but this diversity doesn't come without a cost. In order to actually overcome my bias, I began noting down when a colleague demonstrated lack of knowledge on basic CS topics and especially when they made no effort to learn the topic.

While I won't post the raw statistics here because they are actually fairly disheartening, I would summarize it as follows. There is a significant correlation between whether a person was in an under-represented group and their lack of knowledge. While I admit there might be some causation-correlation fallacy going here (i.e new hires might be from more under-represented groups and new hires might be lacking in knowledge) this trend is far too alarming to ignore.

It is always funny when one of these autismos can't read between the lines of cooperate policy and just comes right out and says it.

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.’

Speaking to the ADL, Tim Cook makes a moral argument for the massive censorship of Americans.

https://www.dailywire.com/news/38991/watch-apples-ceo-suggests-its-sin-not-ban-people-ryan-saavedra

Quote
"We only have one message for those who seek to push hate, division, and violence: You have no place on our platforms," Cook said. "You have no home here."

"If we can't be clear on moral questions like these, then we've got big problems," Cook continued. "I believe the most sacred thing that each of us is given is our judgment, our morality, our own innate desire to separate right from wrong. Choosing to set that responsibility aside at a moment of trial is a sin."

"From the earliest days of iTunes to Apple Music today, we have always prohibited music with a message of white supremacy," Cook added. "Why? Because it is the right thing to do."

"As we showed this year, we won't give a platform to violent conspiracy theorists on the App Store," Cook continued, referencing Apple's decision to remove podcasts from Alex Jones from its Podcast app. "We believe the future should belong to those who use technology to build a better, more inclusive, and more hopeful world."

Remember: Google doesn't censor people or manipulate search results.. they just talk about it constantly on internal forums and sign petitions demanding that censorship and manipulation be implemented.  But its never happened.  Nope.

I'd love to see the day when the things who run and work at FANG cry, piss, and shit themselves as they're being lead up to the guillotine in front of a cheering crowd of people all wearing red hats and yellow vests.

I'm going to take an easy potshot at Google.

Google CEO defends 'integrity' of products ahead of testimony

In written testimony to the House Judiciary Committee made public on Monday, CEO Sundar Pichai said he led the company "without political bias."

"We work hard to ensure the integrity of our products, and we've put a number of checks and balances in place to ensure they continue to live up to our standards," Pichai's testimony said. "I lead this company without political bias and work to ensure that our products continue to operate that way. To do otherwise would go against our core principles and our business interests."

Pichai agreed in September to testify over Republican concerns that the company is biased against conservatives. Google has repeatedly denied this.

https://www.businessinsider.com/google-unconscious-bias-training-presentation-2015-12

Here's the presentation Google gives employees on how to spot unconscious bias at work

Over the past couple years, more tech giants have recognized the dramatic lack of diversity in their workforces as a problem.

 A key initiative is having its roughly 60,000 employees across the world undergo unconscious bias training. Unconscious bias refers to the stereotypes, both negative and positive, that exist in our subconscious and affect our behavior.

First implemented in 2013, the training lasts 60 to 90 minutes and is run by a coordinator who has undergone at least 12 hours of training.

Quote
The presentation begins with an explanation of why everyone is gathered in the first place: Becoming aware of biases can lead to changing behavior, which ultimately can make Google more collaborative, inclusive, and competitive.

What we call unconscious biases are rooted in the recognition that the human brain evolved to help the species survive.

Without the brain's ability to subconsciously process thousands of pieces of information in an instant, our ancestors would have ended up as food.

The same ability now gets us through the day without having to slowly process every decision we make.

Our conscious mind, then, is processing only a minute fraction of what our unconscious mind is processing.

Everyone has biases; it's part of being human. It's important not to be ashamed of this basic fact.

There are four things in the workplace that commonly trigger unconscious biases. Task: We associate certain jobs with a certain type of person. Numbers: When looking at a group, like job applicants, we're more likely to use biases to analyze people in the outlying demographics. Clarity: When information is lacking, our brains fill in the gaps with what we're expecting. Perceiver: A heightened emotional state can keep the conscious mind distracted.

The impact of little decisions can accumulate over time.

. . .

Remove the stigma of unconscious bias. Diversity is meaningless if people are afraid to talk about it.

Call out examples of unconscious bias that you perceive. Also acknowledge that you may be mistaken. What matters is that a culture of collaboration and transparency is established.


Employee: "I'm not racially bias." *demonstrates no biased behavior*
Google:  "Yes you are and you can't help it.  Here, take this 2-hour long training to help you become less racist."

Punjar: "I'm not politically bias."  *demonstrates massive and repeated long-term political bias*
Google: *crickets*

Google Approves App For Muslims To Report People Who Commit Blasphemy

A new Android app has launched with the focus of allowing Muslims to report individuals who commit blasphemy, or insult Islam.

No, this is not a joke. The app, “Smart Pakem”, which launched in Indonesia last month at the request of the Indonesian government, will allow users and government officials to uphold Sharia law and target and report people who hold “misguided” beliefs in violation of Islamic law, which forbids insults of Islam, insults against the Prophet Mohammed, or the recognition of any other religion besides Islam.

Rajan Anandan, who serves as the VP of Google in south-east Asia, has not shown any resistance to the app, which is available in the Google app store.

The National Secular Society (NSS) has since written to Anadan requesting the Google not stock the app in the app store, arguing that the app will have negative consequences for religious minorities and will further minimize freedom of expression.

According to Human Rights Watch, 125 people were convicted of blasphemy in Indonesia between 2004 and 2014. 23 additional people have been convicted since 2014.

Stephen Evans, who serves as the chief executive of NSS said said Google’s decision to stock the Sharia app was “incongruous with Google’s mission statement” and “runs directly contrary to the democratic ideals which Google says it stands for”. Evans also said the app will “normalize restrictions on freedom of expression in Indonesia and elsewhere”.

Muh mission statement.
