"Gangbang Interviews" and "Bikini Shots": Silicon Valley’s Brogrammer Problem | Mother Jones

"Gangbang Interviews" and "Bikini Shots": Silicon Valley’s Brogrammer Problem | Mother Jones | timsinterest | Scoop.it

Good Journalism here on Mother Jones, and it's a bit of a shame that it appears there -- one of my favorite media, but known for its politics -- instead of more mainstream. 


People I know very well -- of both genders -- have seen and objected to this phenomenon. It seems so 20-years-ago, and should be. But it's still very much alive and kicking today, and very much so in the heart of the Silicon Valley (as in SOMA).


I'm proud of how much this would be completely impossible as well as competely inappropriate at Palo Alto Software, where the development team (and the rest of the company as well) has a good gender mix.

The Rise of the Supertemp

The Rise of the Supertemp | timsinterest | Scoop.it

Let’s call Trevisani a supertemp. He and others like him belong to the “free agent nation” popularized a decade ago by the author and workplace guru Daniel Pink, but they inhabit its most rarefied precincts. Supertemps are top managers and professionals—from lawyers to CFOs to consultants—who’ve been trained at top schools and companies and choose to pursue project-based careers independent of any major firm. They’re increasingly trusted by corporations to do mission-critical work that in the past would have been done by permanent employees or established outside firms. New intermediaries have sprung up to create a market for such marquee talent. Supertemps are growing in number, and we think they’re on the verge of changing how business works.

The 7 Bad Habits of Insanely Productive People | timsinterest | Scoop.it

Hmm ... this blog post by Sonia Simone on copyblogger has a great title, and good content, and a wonderfully rich sense of irony as it sets up seven straw-man supposedly bad habits and then contradicts itself seven times. 


Very nicely written, good food for thought, and also full of humor. 


7 bad habits indeed. NOT.
