Clearly Megan McArdle has a shallow understanding of the tech industry if she feels that all roles work with "inanimate objects" as she noted her in column "That Google memo about women in tech wasn't wrong".
Damore lost his job Monday after a firestorm erupted over the weekend when his memo went viral.
The engineer, James Damore, was subsequently fired for violating Google's code of conduct.
Pichai earlier said parts of the 3,300-word manifesto crossed the line by "advancing harmful gender stereotypes" in the workplace. With free food, internal meme boards and weekly companywide meetings, Google becomes a huge part of its employees' lives. The newly appointed vice president for Diversity, Integrity and Governance at Google, Danielle Brown, also sent out a memo to staff or "Googlers" on the issue.
In a statement, Google said it was "concerned that providing personal contact information for more than 25,000 Google employees could have privacy implications, and the judge agreed, citing the history of government data breaches and recent hacking of Department of Labor data". Recently, a startup investor Alex Rubalcava who spotted the ads on benches and bus stops near the company's office in Venice had this to say: "Someone is in Venice is not happy about Google's firing of that memo guy".
On Facebook, conservative writer Milo Yiannopoulos posted the Twitter biographies of eight Google employees who had criticised Damore. "I got that at Google before all of this leaked". In addition to the WSJ, he has given interviews to Bloomberg, spoken at length with two YouTube personalities popular with alt-right and right-wing audiences, Stefan Molyneux and Jordan B. Peterson, and he did a photoshoot with alt-right photographer Peter Duke.
A number of employees sent emails to Pichai and told managers that they planned to skip the meeting because they were anxious that they would face online reprisals for speaking out.
"We had hoped to have a frank, open discussion today as we always do to bring us together and move forward, ' the business" chief executive Sundar Pichai wrote in an email. Fired4Truth, widely believed to be Damore's Twitter account, hit 35,000 followers in a matter of days.
Someone with access to an employee-only version of Google Plus made screenshots of messages written by Google employees pledging to create blacklists of colleagues not supportive of the company's diversity measures. James Finberg, who is a civil rights attorney has announced that he is working on finding a legal basis for these women.
Google did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
His memo has ignited a fierce debate about the company's culture. The loud voice here is the liberal one.
