Re: How to leak information...unintentionally
Considering that I'm currently sitting in Hollywoerd, and grew up in Silly Valley (and live in Seattle, you want to talk Kum-By-Yah,), I think I may have something to offer here:
I'm politically antagonistic...I hate all of your sides/perspectives and the only good politicial is the one [severely edited] and piss American Pilsner on their graves. And I work in the Information business. These being said
He was fired because he was a prick and his workgroup turned on him, went to management, and he was walked to the door.
I have managed a bunch of folk in my time, and so:
1. Google is Retardedly and Blindly Liberal. It's no less a Kool-Aid drinking Cult than Microsofties.
2. It is unlikely that a Conservative is going to fair well in that environment.
3. I have 20 people on my team, and One of them opens their mouth and pisses off 17 of the remaining, the one has to go.
There isn't enough Gold in Christendom to get me to work for Google (I remember when they were eight people above a used book store on the 500 block of University Ave in Palo Alto). They've gone off the deep end and Bully For Them!
But, as a manager, my Team Coherence is of Vital Importance to me.
This guy, as an individual, is a prick. I wouldn't have allowed him on my team to begin with ... so, really, Google HR is to blame for not descriminating against him back in the early hiring process where it would be Very difficult to prove (even in The Socialistic Republic of California) that a White Conservative Male was discriminated against. San Mateo County would laugh him out of the court room.
Apropos: When you pull a knife in a fight, and your opponet *Smiles*, you may wish to rethink some things because either:
A. Your opponet is crazy.
B. They know something you don't know.
Google will not be writing checks to this guy.
He should have moved to Texas and sued from there. He might have had a chance. For now, he's just pissing up a rope instead of Maximizing His Search Engine skills over at monster.com.
