GitHub Apologizes for Secrecy Around Harassment Allegations | Re/code
The tone of GitHub’s response has gone from defensive to super apologetic. >> "“Last Monday I published the least open and least transparent blog post GitHub has ever written. We failed to admit and own up to our mistakes, and for that I’m sorry. GitHub has a reputation for being transparent and taking responsibility for our actions, but last week we did neither. There’s no excuse. We can do a lot better.” + Add the wifes response = https://medium.com/my-side-of-the-story/2fe173c44215

GitHub co-founder resigns after investigation into harassment claims | The Verge
Horvath claimed to have experienced sexism and gender-based harassment at GitHub. She also spoke out about Preston-Werner and his wife, who she says personally harassed her for two years, the former berating her in his office and the latter stalking her at work. According to Horvath, the Preston-Warners were apparently concerned that she would undermine the company's reputation, perhaps due to her outspokenness on the issues around women in tech. + http://www.theverge.com/2014/3/19/5526574/github-sexism-scandal-julie-ann-horvath + http://www.theverge.com/2014/3/19/5526574/github-sexism-scandal-julie-ann-horvath + http://techcrunch.com/search/Julie+Ann+Horvath#stq=Julie Ann+Horvath&stp=1 "" GitHub was generally female-friendly, but her team felt like a boy’s club. She felt increasingly aware of "how little the men I worked with respected and valued my opinion" and observed the same thing happening to her female co-workers. ""
