Basecamp Bans Societal and Political Discussions at Work
"The startup base camp is well known intact circles. It makes product management and communication software for business teams. It developed the ruby on rails software development framework. It's quite influential in silicon valley but last week it got a lot of unexpected attention nationwide when it announced its employees would no longer be allowed to have quote societal and political discussions on the company's internal base camp account leaders at the companies said. The conversations had become too much of a distraction from work. The move sparked a ton of conversation base camp and beyond and it's indicative of a broader debate happening in silicon valley for more on this we turn to our tech reporter catherine bentley.

Oliver lincoln effectively. What you had was kind of two camps if people you had people who said you know i some people especially underrepresented groups. They can't always sort of divorce politics from their identity. For example i saw someone tweet Someone who's non binary. Say if i introduce myself with my preferred pronouns at a work meeting some people might view that as a political move but to me. This is part of my identity.

I've known people who've gone on all sorts of different binges. I've never known anybody going out to a multiday donut donut everyday for fourteen days straight. Something like a hammer that you burn your taste buds off. You can just eat broccoli. It tastes the same as a doughnut. Exactly pretended sedona them.

How you assess whether you're an alcoholic or not has drinking ever caused you to blank do you ever blank. Because you've been drinking people ever say you you're drinking is blank. I mean if you were to insert doughnut and send drinking in one of those questions. I'd be curious to say. Has your wife ever said honey.

I think she may have been twenty one. Twenty two had a couple drinks got for dui and the penalty that they were going to hit her with would have made it extremely difficult for her to keep her job and she would have big fines. Had no eight of pay them and gone into a spiral of you. Know terrible financial outcomes. But because mom and dad could hire an attorney in a good one her penalties were vastly reduced to the point that she could keep her job and go on with their life in boy that that email trouble me. I wasn't sure you know what are take should be or or i really wanted to think about it for a while before i brought it to you but that that bothered me well the the the we haven't decided as this we've decided as a society drinking driving's bed and we've come up with a penalty. I don't think anybody decided you know. Let's make the penalty of ru ruins your ruins your life right one when dui ruined your life right well. It went from six months with no license to four months restricted license. And it went from something like a month in jail to Know picking up trash on the weekends and gone to a bunch of aa meetings.

That's true this is from a sub reddit. I don't know what that is. You said it's people who think they can go on message. Boards and get good advice will read. It is a is a message board thing.

Why you'd ask the does in the middle of the night who are doing nothing else but reading these for advice on your relationship that supposedly some people find it soothing. They're your people. I know this sounds really weird but here it is. She says my boyfriend and i are both in their late twenties. My boyfriend and i have been together for three years. We met and started dating when we were both in graduate school. But i dropped out to go back to college to pursue a different career. We're both finished now. Live together making a fairly nice combined income. There you go. Our income is relevant because we could afford to eat somewhere. Nice when we're out in about but he always wants breakfast food you know. I think i need to set up. What's going to happen here. You can enjoy the background better okay. Every time they go to the waffle house. Dvd gets a fight with the cook. Knowing that hearing this story about both went to graduate school they make a decent income sound like normal successful people as she said. Our income is relevant because we could afford to eat somewhere. Nice when we're out and about but he always wants breakfast food. When he was a child his dad couldn't stand eating breakfast type food in the after noon or evenings so his mom would make him waffle slash pancakes eggs and bacon in the evening. I wonder is. Dad was busy or out of town. It's a wonderful and safe memory for him and when he goes to was happy place. He says that's where he goes. How interesting this okay. I boy friend is an incredibly nice and caring person. He's emotionally tuned into everyone in recognizes a rising issues a long time before they occur he loves animals and his kind and gentle with every bug broadened pet that he comes across the inevitable the inevitable. He's a wonderful guy before the but these more than wonderful every bug he come across problems before they occur. This is why i felt. It was important to set up where we're headed with this so you can take this in the time. Okay scratch your head okay. This is the guy that gets in a fight with the cook. Every time he goes to the waffle house he won't kill a bug. He says all almost as always willing to turn the other cheek and social situations where somebody tries to insult them get aggressive towards him and usually diffusing the situation and having a productive discussion about whatever the issue was freaking gandhi over here except it waffle house. Perf anytime we're out. He wants to go to the goddamn waffle house. Her words not mine are indeed. Careful now this is an issue that already exists that apparently he didn't recognize how many how many people are familiar with the waffle house. Vibe i think if they have not experienced it personally it's enough of a part of america. Americana they get it. I like me a waffle house i do. It is casual dining folks if you're not very casual like shirts are requested. Sobriety suggested easily observed. Now anytime we're out he wants to go the same. Gd waffle house and get breakfast food. I'm not a big eater. So i usually don't care. I would just drink coffee and read my book while enjoyed his food but that became impossible once he and this one cook started chirping at each other every time we want their own boy complained about his eggs one time because he likes them a little runny and they were served hard. The cook responded by giving him scrambled eggs when he brought it up again. The cook served them too hard boiled eggs. I think it was just part of the cook stick and it was kind of funny but my boyfriend wasn't able to laugh at off when we left. He was kind of a bad mood but we didn't really talk about it the next week we were like.

You're one of the reasons why i picked up a booking. A physical book for the first time was late last week and i just. I wanted to exercise that part of my brain. They didn't say it in this article.

Actually meant the grocery store. Okay there's two people in line better get out my phone and get a little input of some sort but that would be the first place to start. I think quit acting like standing in line for two minutes is going to kill you. I just i think you have to once you understand that being slightly bored is good.

"Sit something stronger. I i pulled it back from the bruno. This and any one of us that has ever gotten school has to be honest about this.

I'm have you know i'm supportive of our teachers as you know anybody out there. But we're re have a system where you know the well-made majority of our teachers are white but the majority of our students are latino or apple okay. Is that a big leap. We're certainly not saying that. We're automatically assuming things so we are looking at numbers and knowing that the relationship between the teacher and a student can affect the student's grade knowing that we've got a mismatch between the experiences of our students and the experiences of our teachers and knowing that we have a disproportionate number of students of color who are receiving these active compared to white students.
