Are these heartless retards the same ones that refuse to adopt black cats because they are black? I just can't.

I just learned that there is a nascent pets anti-vaxxer movement and I'm logging off this world indefinitely. πŸ™€

Every day, in every office, women and minorities handle being talked over/talked down with much more grace and power than this supposedly-professional dude does when he is rightly called out.

Boggles my mind.

What's amazing to me is how lacking of basic competence seemingly "important" or "elite" folks turn out to be once you scratch the surface.

Carson starts stuttering and throwing incoherent one-word insults at Bregman as soon as the conversation takes an unexpected turn.

"Software Engineer, Full-Stack Infrastructure" seems like a particularly baffling job role name.

If your new employer's "care package" to welcome you to the team includes the founder's book, I suspect that's a red flag. πŸ“šπŸš©

'Length' and 'width' are the two hardest-to-spell words in the English language. πŸ˜…

Equal pay will suffice, thank you.

Early on during my time at Google I would use the term as a general word for "the right thing to do". I was so naive and unaware.

Had to learn the hard way that that's not what "Googley" means. I'm more conscious of the harm in such explicit in-group vs out-group language now.

"That's not Googley" --> you are breaking some in-group unspoken rule, and I am too lazy to try to articulate what that rule is

This whole thread is worth a read.

A thing that particularly bothers me is how "Googley" (and other similar terms at other companies) is used as code for "don't step out of line", without having to ever be explicit about what the expectations actually are.

Dude 2: Hey, hehe... let's be Googley here! Pausing the meeting like this is really uncomfortable for Dude 1.

Me: And being credential checked or assumed ignorant, is awkward for black folks. Most black folk in tech tolerate this. Not me. I'm the other kind of black dude.

From a homepage of a company that purports to help you "build better teams". They'll optimize away all those pesky interpersonal interactions, and help you deal with all those scary "individuals".
