Don't Be Google...


The Sanity Inspector added the logos to that awesome image above and posted it, I just added the title...



Of course Google is not the government (at least not yet). It can generally fire employees at will (with some exceptions). The first amendment, by itself, does not prevent a private employer from firing you for saying something the employer disagrees with. But it was exceedingly stupid for Google to fire James Damore over this memo

You do not have to agree with the memo (many don't), but if you vehemently disagree with Damore's position, women are not so fragile that you can't address Damore's arguments with counter arguments. That is what a debate is. If you want an open dialog, have an open dialog.  

In short: Don't Be Evil, Google. Because otherwise Google = Evil.

James Damore says 'Google like a Cult': Ouch!


Legal Insurrection: Google likely to go wrong way
