+Donna Buckles which is precisely the point of not taking an issue that affects everyone and draw attention to one class of the group members. The issue is more why are incompetent people being hired for leadership positions, than that phenomenon is the cause of a gender discrepancy. If that issue is resolved, than the person hired for a position should be the most qualified candidate no matter their gender. I have been supervised by incompetent members of both genders and it is horrible no matter their gender.

There is empirical evidence to support the idea that males have a higher capacity for spatial reasoning than females. A large-scale 1995 meta-analysis found that on average, men outperform women in a cluster of tests related to spatial ability by nearly a full standard deviation, and in attempt to explain this, researchers have hypothesized about the impact of testosterone and...
+Daniel Foré gotcha, although I do think being thoughtful about how we name performance situations to not tap into stereotypes is a practical step... And if course more affirmative action to combat these stereotypes is important.
"When we build websites or apps, we often wait until the last minute to bring in designers to “apply” design, or look and feel. This is akin to baking a cake and then hiring a baker to make it taste good." -Mike Monteiro
Why is this guy so quotable? ... and why haven't I read this book yet?!
It’s been almost a year since we hosted our inaugural Design Conference in San Francisco, CA. As a wide-angle examination of the intersection between design and technology, FORM (https://design.google.com/form-2014/) brought together design thinkers and practitioners to discuss what it means to have a contemporary practice today. A lot happened over the day and a half of panels, talks, workshops and networking, and nobody left without learning a little something about the latest designer fashion (https://goo.gl/aCSYQD) trends (https://goo.gl/tOLmHh).
"This new logo system is the climax of Google’s evolution into one of the most thoughtful and well-designed products today and represents a masterful 180-degree turn from the third-rate design it featured in its infancy and of which it was very proud. Now, Google is setting a standard..." - Armin Vit
Thanks for deep and considered view at the work, our process and the constraints and context we had for the new Google identity.
"Amazeballs" kinda sums up the team's appreciation!
So do I officially not get it because I like the old one much better? Up to now I loved everything +Matias Duarte did starting from the incredible WebOS to material design. I even love the Tron Style approach of Android 3.0. But this new logo just isn't for me... Looks like a toy brand.
“The promise of the early internet was that it would liberate us from our bodies, and all the oppressions associated with prejudice. We’d communicate soul to soul, and get to know each other as people, rather than judging each other based on gender or race.” But because the default, assumed identity was white and male, anyone who brought up their race or gender – or dared to complain about bias – was seen as disturbing that dream.
+Kaoru Shimitsu And you gave cherry picked results versus any studies that show they occur concurrent with racial demographics. Like I said...nice try.
So it doesn't have anything to do with being a white person? Oh really? Let me know when a black man can walk down the street legally carrying his rifle without being feared or stopped by the police. A black man tried that and the police swarmed on him. A white man can walk into a gun show, buy an arsenal and have no red flags raised. A group of white men can rally to protect a ranch for a tax dodger and have snipers aiming at federal officials....and nothing happens. You know had it been a group of anyone who wasn't white, it would not have gone down like that.
This is not a sit down place it's just a counter, but its some of the best fried oysters around. Order them and eat them quick while they're still sizzling! Fries and shrimp are also yummy but I just go for two plates of the oysters just for me!
