Not My Favorite Xmas Card

special_place_in_hell

I’ve been listening to a lot of WTR and other podcasts that interview people who dwell on the topics of inclusion and empathy in the technical work space. I listen to them because I want other people around me to succeed. I want my sons and daughters to feel welcomed to the sciences or computer programming. I must say that this kind of “humor” comes off as elitist derision. Its very irritating since I’ve got more than 10 years more professional experience than him. Do I need to join his “zfs club”?  My response is clearly a light-hearted defense tactic…I was not interested in getting into an twitter ego battle on Christmas. I strongly feel this is an example of miscommunication that would not be taken well by others. Sorry, Allan, I did not: I actually dwelled on it for a few days.
