This is an interesting story.  I don't "know" Erica, but I remembering interacting with/in the same threads as her back when Google+ launched and she struck me as a great person.

I'm actually a pretty big fan of salary transparency.  Not because I think that everyone out there is looking to screw over their coworkers, but because I think it can point to bigger problems (intentional or not) in hiring and raises, so good on her for doing this.

But the main reason I wanted to share this piece is because of the trash that BI calls the comment section.  Shit like the comments left on this article are exactly WHY the idea that people get paid less based on their gender/race is still a thing.  In the comments people said :

1) Comments on how she looks
2) That she's not a "real" engineer. (bullpucky)
3) That she "accepted" her salary so she can't complain (to which the response is, how can you really accept something if you don't know the scale offered to others)
4) That Google should fire her for encouraging discussion of salaries (bullpucky) 
5) That the only reason she got a job at Google and now Slack is because she's a POC women (seriously, someone thinks this)

You want to know why people still get so worked up about racial and gender inequality?  Look at those comments..  do you see anyone discussing the merits of the study? No, you see people trivializing her opinion because she's a women and a person of color.

And we STILL want to operate under the myth of a meritocracy?  really?

Scalia (unit)

The SI unit of having the worst week ever of your life when it feels like you just can't win and you realize you're a sad old man yelling at cloud and even the cloud don't give a damn no more.

As true today as it was then.
 
It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard. And what is it America has failed to hear? It has failed to hear that the plight of the negro poor has worsened over the last twelve or fifteen years. It has failed to hear that the promises of freedom and justice have not been met. And it has failed to hear that large segments of white society are more concerned about tranquility and the status quo than about justice and humanity.

MLK, 1968.  Not today, 1968.

"Sprint is agreeing to pay $15.5 million to settle a lawsuit brought by the Obama administration that accuses the Overland Park, Kansas carrier of overcharging the government for wiretapping its customers" and my advice to all y'all handsome snowflakes is to continue treating your "private" phone calls to be all like...

Of course, Dunkin' Donuts are pretty delicious and have a variety of flavors. Unfortunately, their iced coffee leaves a lot to be desired. While it is less expensive than at Starbucks, it has nowhere near the same amount of taste. Stick to the donuts, Dunkin'.
