The Editor’s Notes
by Ken Holder, Editor
When I was a kid (long years ago) I thought the atomic rocket would some day take me to the Moon and beyond. But no. And now too late probably. Perhaps my grandkids?

Google’s Ideological Echo Chamber
by James Damore
I value diversity and inclusion, am not denying that sexism exists, and don’t endorse using stereotypes. When addressing the gap in representation in the population, we need to look at population level differences in distributions. If we can’t have an honest discussion about this, then we can never truly solve the problem. Psychological safety is built on mutual respect and acceptance, but unfortunately our culture of shaming and misrepresentation is disrespectful and unaccepting of anyone outside its echo chamber. Despite what the public response seems to have been, I’ve gotten many personal messages from fellow Googlers expressing their gratitude for bringing up these very important issues which they agree with but would never have the courage to say or defend because of our shaming culture and the possibility of being fired. This needs to change.

The issue of sanctuary cities has come up during the current debate on immigration. People get very emotional about the whole thing, those on the left running of about humanitarian concerns, those on the right taking about the need to protect the US from a rampaging horde of illegal aliens murdering, raping, and selling drugs illegally. Both sides have legitimate concerns.
