Alternate link http://queue.acm.org/detail.cfm?id=2891413
That really ought to be the link for this article, instead of the current one.
Also, I think the part about weirdness is some bullshit–it’s kinda telling that while they’re pushing for diversity all of the sudden there’s no room left for more typical “weirdos”. Saying that pet names for places (“shire” instead of server room, “happy hatchling day” instead of birthday, etc.) is just a way to beat down nerds.
Otherwise, a decent writeup.
Thanks, I did not realize (being within a university network) that the link I submitted was under a paywall.
