Political Durability
Salvatore Sanfilippo wrote a post yesterday concerning his own take on sexism in IT. Although I personally found the post merely sophomoric, and largely predicated on straw men (straw women?), it kicked off a firestorm on the Twitters. Complete with people actually claiming to stop using Redis in response. I’m not sure which is stupider, so I’ll instead just make fun of them both. Then, I’ll throw Oracle in just for good measure, because it’s an easy target.
