This Is Not Helping
I was over at the Google Labs web site today, looking for some awesome new something or other. Maybe I’ve just gotten overly sensitized to this sort of thing, but the homogeneity in the column of faces there really jumped out at me. Does it hit you the same way? I’m not faulting them for giving some individual engineers credit and visibility or for putting a human face on their stuff or for being who they are.
But this is what our challenge looks like.
