“… this is a good example of how insular the software
development environment is. It is a boy’s club, where locker-room
behavior is overlooked, and indeed, not even acknowledged.”
Rubty on Rails programmer Julia Evans, commenting on how a truly clueless human being who also happened to be a programmer didn’t get it that filling his oh so public and supposedly professional presentation on Perform like a Porn Star with images of half-dressed women was offensive.
(Though of course, if he’d filled the screen with images of himself in a similar state, I would have thought thei stupidity to be of a different order–and one more worth of pity, instead of the annoyed rage I feel. Asked his wife, whoppee)!
