Basecamp Backlash, Remote Work Increasing Harassment, Linux Kernel Submission Ban, & more on DevNews!

This week on the show, @saronyitbarek and I chatted about a dispiriting story that has major implications for the tech world...

I’m talking about the problematic blog post put out by Basecamp CEO and Co-Founder Jason Fried earlier this week. Whether you’ve read it or not, I think you’ll find the conversation about it between Saron and I interesting. If the post put a major damper on your week, I’m right there with you 😔

In this episode, we also covered the following stories...

  • A report put out by the non-profit, Project Include, about how remote work is leading to more gender and racial harassment at tech companies. McKensie Mack (founder & CEO of MMG and a co-author of the report) joined us on the show to discuss this.
  • The University of Minnesota security researchers who submitted security vulnerabilities to the Linux kernel to show flaws in the approval process, leading to a call for a ban on anything submitted by umn.edu emails. Hector Monsegur (Security Researcher and Former Blackhat Hacker) joined us for this topic.

Enjoy the episode!
