Re: Controversial bro-grammer James Damore

Damore was invited to attend some diversity programme and subsequently engaged with dialog with certain attendees through a restricted internal discussiion board. And Damore wrote the memo through a twelve hour flight to China.

Damore sent his memo to an internal mailing list open to all Google employees. People politely disagreed with him, and nothing happened.

Four weeks later, he sent it to another internal mailing list that was more widely followed; and then his document went viral internally. After a few days, somebody leaked it, and then it went viral externally. He was fired a few days later.
