I just got an email from someone who works in "Talent Attraction", and I think that's the best name for recruiting I've seen yet. 😻

And how does a "world-class" engineer compare to a "quality" one?

What is a "world-class engineer"? Is that a thing? How do you tell who is "world-class"? What do you really mean by that?

Are these heartless asshats 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.

"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
