Science, publishing, and career
By now, you may have all heard of the Google Engineer fired over his criticism of diversity efforts. The full memo is here. My particular thoughts resonate with the Atlantic article below, because it reminds me of how important science communication is, and how quickly it devolves into black and white:
The Most Common Error in Media Coverage of the Google Memo – Conor Friedersdorf – The Atlantic
