titled developer evangelist who worked for SendGrid, an email delivery company. Her BS title is enough to rub me the wrong way but her actions last week at a Pycon Conference put her atop my list of least favorite women (she’s the only one on the list). Richards overheard two men sitting behind her telling a joke about “big dongles” and “forking repos” and her Victorian, "Oh my Sweet Lord" response has the tech world in a tizzy and more gender divided than ever.
In case you do not know, a “dongle” is a small piece of hardware used in software copy protection and “forking a repo” is making a copy of a software package to make a new program.
Here's how it went down:
Richards assumed the joke she overheard was of a sexual nature.
She took offense.
She turned around and took a photo of the two men.
She then tweeted the comments shown below and a photo of the men.
She reported the pair to conference organizers.
One of the two men gets fired.
Richards gets fired.
The party online kicks in to high gear.
in Thailand is the perfect antidote for the scorching heat. Whether you're visiting or living in Thailand, at some point you're bound to come across one of the pushcart vendors. Priced to sell at only 25 baht, you can eat coconut ice cream between two pieces of bread — a real ice cream sandwich — in a cup or bowl, or inside of a coconut! Be forewarned - this ice cream is like potato chips in that it's hard to stop eating once you start. The only difference is coconut ice cream is better!
possible. I'm going to find other areas of Bangkok where there's enough graffiti to keep my busy. I suspect Klong Tooey has some, and I'm fairly certain to find some near where the Red Bull park used to be (don't think it's there anymore). The thing is, I'm sure I've drove by numerous places covered with graffiti but I've just been unaware or too caught up in whatever it is I'm doing.
If anyone knows of any areas in Bangkok, or any other places in Asia with an abundance of street art, please let me know!
