The Kleiner Perkins Lawsuit, and Rethinking the Confidence-Driven Workplace | Hacker News
"At Google, men were being promoted at a much higher rate than women — because they were nominating themselves for promotion and women were not." [...] to reach positions of power in the tech industry, people need to be able to aggressively speak in meetings. Coaching often includes work on how to effectively communicate in meetings and is sometimes described as assertiveness training. &! from hackernews comments >> In other words unless the environment of respect and normal discussion is not defended it will end up being dominated by a few assholes. I've seen in this meetings most often, you've seen it too. &! http://www.nytimes.com/2015/03/13/upshot/the-kleiner-perkins-lawsuit-and-rethinking-the-confidence-driven-workplace.html

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 [C]ity officials and outdated statutes are as much to blame as tech companies
