But now, "The New York Times" Reporter David Streitfeld is giving the feminista world another glittering example of why.
David's article on Ellen Pao’s sexual harassment lawsuit against her employer, Silicon Valley tech firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, is setting off a wave of angry responses -- led by BoingBoing Co-Founder and Blogger Xeni Jardin.
Here’s the intro, or “steaming turd of an opening line” as Xeni called it:
- Tony Pierce: @xeni I'll tell my mom who programmed via punch cards in the '70s that her efforts didn't count according to @nytimes
- Zoie: @xeni I doubt my mom, who put up with this crap in grad school, xerox & bell in the 70s & 80s, would be surprised that nothing has changed
- Margret Bell: @xeni My Mom's killer UNIX and C compiler work at Bell Labs on switching systems in the early 80's, well, you know - she needed a hobby.
- Lisha Sterling: @xeni My grandmother was a programmer and mathematician back in the 50's and 60's. Her PhD thesis was published by her adviser as his own.
- Joe Posner: @xeni my mom @eileenrudden helped make lotus notes -- as result I think we had one of first ADSL hookups in country
