DSK and Dodo the Pimp: Sex and power in France - Newsnight - YouTube
complicit and impunity - see same in UK with abuse scandals and paedophiles up and down Britain's Society and especially Westminster - and Met Police looking away during recent history till back then during Thatcher's time and maybe even way back even more. What a picture of society and what it means in a persons life to have "power." And also include the Church! Sure, back then paedophiles, rapists and abusers of any kind often got away with it more or less because of the stigma as victim (you brought this on you) and the lack (non existent) of prosecution and support. Dark ages. Dark ages. That is recent history. Just one generation. Thinking about it is abhorring - that these people still shape our life's to some extent.

How Silicon Valley’s counterculture went corporate and ruined everything | PandoDaily
Politicians, entrepreneurs, artists, activists, hippies, and corporations all working together to make the world a better place? In 2015, that arrangement seems unthinkable. So where did the dream of tech-powered togetherness go wrong? [...] [...] // As of last November, the median rent for a one-bedroom apartment in San Francisco was $3,350 [£2200]. [...] So contrary to Gosney’s and Archer’s dream of a techno-utopia that benefits every slice of San Francisco’s population, the tech boom — along with various city statutes that limit residential housing — have made it harder than ever for artists and other members of the counterculture to live in the city. These are the very people, mind you, who helped spark the region’s technological revolution. And that’s saying nothing of the struggles felt by teachers, social workers and other non-tech workers struggling to stay afloat as housing prices skyrocket. [...] [C]ity officials and outdated statutes are as much to blame as tech companies

My first and last time at the Crunchies — TheLi.st @ Medium — Medium
At the Crunchies, comedian T.J. Miller, a star of the show “Silicon Valley” (which I watch and love), threw out a bunch of playful zingers in his opening act. But then at one point, he engaged with a woman (Gabi Holzwarth) a few rows in front of me by calling her a “bitch”. She responded increduously, “Did you just call me a bitch?” He then said, “Bitch, Asians aren’t supposed to be this entitled in the U.S. … Is this bitch from Palo Alto?” The audience laughed nervously. I was so uncomfortable I wanted to leave, but of course I couldn’t given that our award was coming up. [...] At Crunchies I saw a woman get called a "bitch" onstage, then I did AOL TV & the host mocked me for being pale and made fun of my purse. [...] [ << Show of insecurity by taking the cheap road.

&! http://www.3sat.de/page/?source=/scobel/180041/index.html - Vergewaltigung ist keine Straftat wie andere: Im Unterschied zu anderen Formen der Gewalt stellt sexualisierte Gewalt einen Angriff auf die Identität dar. Sie ist ein Akt der Entmenschlichung - und bietet gleichzeitig als Belohnung für den Täter: ein maximales Machtgefühl. Die Folgen für die Betroffenen sind vielfältig: körperliche Verletzungen und massive Traumatisierungen der Psyche, die oft ein Leben lang andauern.

Dicke Männer bekommen mehr Gehalt, dicke Frauen weniger - SPIEGEL ONLINE
KarriereSPIEGEL: Und für Frauen? Caliendo: Sie verdienen am meisten bei einem Body-Mass-Index (BMI) von 21,5 - einem Wert, der nach gesellschaftlichen Standards als attraktiv definiert wird. Mit diesem BMI verdienen Frauen bis zu zwölf Prozent mehr als übergewichtige Kolleginnen. Das gilt besonders für Berufe, in denen sie Kundenkontakt haben, zum Beispiel in der Gastronomie oder im Vertrieb. [...] Ja, für Männer gibt es offenbar einen Schlankheitsmalus, der auf Körperkraft beruht. Frauen bekommen dagegen einen Schlankheitsbonus, der auf physischer Attraktivität basiert. Bei ihnen geht der Effekt sogar noch weiter. [...] Das Körpergewicht wirkt sich bei Frauen nicht nur auf ihr Einkommen aus, sondern auch auf die Wahrscheinlichkeit, überhaupt einen Job zu bekommen. Das Risiko, arbeitslos zu sein, ist für übergewichtige Frauen größer als für schlanke.

The Responsive Enterprise: Embracing the Hacker Way - ACM Queue
The "Seven Aspects of our Culture," as described in a Netflix slide presentation (Values are what we Value; High Performance; Freedom and Responsibility; Context, not Control; Highly Aligned, Loosely Coupled; Pay Top of Market; and Promotions and Development) provides a crisp formulation of people-management values for a software-centric enterprise.4 Here is our take on four of Netflix's seven core values: [...] No company embodies the hacker culture better than Facebook, and CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg explained the idea eloquently in his letter to investors when Facebook filed for its IPO: "Hacker culture is also extremely open and meritocratic. Hackers believe that the best idea and implementation should always win—not the person who is best at lobbying for an idea or the person who manages the most people."10

Objects rather than human beings. Thus the Patriarchy (and Religion) are enabled to justify rape through slut shaming or deciding on women's reproductive rights. as it were just a "thing," an immaterial object readily replaceable.

Women In Tech: It’s Not Just A Pipeline Problem | TechCrunch
Between ages 25 and 30, 41% of the young talent with credentials in those subject matters are female … [but] 52% of this talent drops out … The most important antigen is the machismo that continues to permeate these work environments … 63% of women in science, engineering and technology have experienced sexual harassment. [...] If you create an environment wherein a whole class of entrepreneurs and employees goes unnoticed by deeply flawed industry-wide “pattern recognition” heuristics, and/or one where they have to be perpetually on their guard, and must pretend not to notice all the myriad microaggressions that make them feel vulnerable and uncomfortable and out-of-place then many of those entrepreneurs and employees will decide, rightly, that the tech industry is not worth the hassle and grief. + http://craigconnects.org/2014/08/why-men-must-lean-in-to-support-womens-leadership-2.html

European Investor Admits He Pestered Female Entrepreneur For Sex In “Deal” Email | TechCrunch
But the way tech investing works is that people tend to invest in people like themselves. The horrible laws of homophily, the tendency of individuals to associate and bond with similar others, mean that they inevitably prefer to invest in people like them, and the cycle continues. Men tend to invest in men. Yet tech is forming the world as we know it today. It pervades every part of our world and will do for rest of human history. And this is a world that women occupy. Women who have their own capacities and ambitions to succeed and to make their impact in their own way. [...] We have to work out what it means for men and women to work equally in this industry — since we have so few examples of women rising to the top. || 2nd girl @luciemontel / @geschehaas facebook.com/geschehaas linkedin.com/pub/gesche-haas/4/773/b59 || http://bit.ly/VHbD0c http://bit.ly/1tnKPPf http://bit.ly/1obLldz http://tnw.co/1AxSAW1 http://dailym.ai/1qqqmFj http://bit.ly/1tjEy80 +YC http://on.recode.net/YFCETT
