It was meant to be a safe space for open expression. Google executives invited their entire staff to gather yesterday to discuss issues raised by engineer James Damore’s manifesto blaming “biological” differences for tech’s gender gap. But it was canceled after some employees’ personal information was published online, making them targets for harassment. Some who’ve been publicly critical of the memo received death threats after Damore, fired over the incident, gave an interview to an alt-right YouTube channel. Meanwhile, Google says it’ll use other means to continue the internal discussion.
