The saddest thing is that most people will find this humorous instead of serious. We’re standing right beside one another, and yet we text others instead of actually speaking to each other. Have you ever sat down and thought about how uncomfortable we now are around one another that it’s so bad that we literally pretend to be texting someone when we’re not, just so it’s less awkward to stand beside people? What’s supposed to strengthen our bonds has taken away from it. It’s time to take our faces out of our phones and notice the world, give a kind gesture to someone, and go SEE your friends instead of just texting them.
I’m going to let that sink in.

Ah yes let me just up and leave school right in between my classes so I can go see the friend 40 miles away that i’m currently texting instead of making idle chit chat with the people around me that I don’t particularly care for.Fuck your pretentious shit.


"whines evil technology is making people antisocial its not real communication if its not face to face and im a pretentious self righteous shitbaby that asks random people on the street for the time and feels good about it"

Pinterest Joins the Chorus of Tech Firms Reporting Lack of Diversity

anitaborginstitute:

From the Wall Street Journal

Pinterest, please come forward and share your diversity numbers next.

The photo-pinning site joined Silicon Valley colleagues in releasing statistics that showed its employees are primarily white and male. In a blog post Thursday, Pinterest said 60% of its global workforce comprises men, and that Caucasians make up half the employees. Asians accounted for 42%, while Hispanics were 2% and African-Americans were 1%.image

There are all these numbers but maybe we should be doing more than just saying :P

The state of women in technology: 15 data points you should know - TechRepublic
Here are 15 important data points you should know, including a few rays of sunlight.
1. Women made up 26% of the computing workforce in 2013 That’s according to the National Center for Women & Information Technology’s most recent statistics. They also broke down the numbers even more:
3% of computing workforce were black women 5% were Asian women 2% were Hispanic women 2. Professional women earn 73 cents to the dollar vs. men According to Narrow the Gapp, that’s $333 of a weekly paycheck, which adds up to $17,316 per year. The site also says that women who work in computer and mathematical occupations make 84 cents to every dollar a man earns. That’s $214 out of her weekly paycheck. Compare that to the overall national average of women earning 80 cents to every dollar a man earns.
3. In the mid-1980s, 37% of computer science majors were women; in 2012, 18% In a study Google released last month, the company surveyed about 1,600 men and women. It showed that girls aren’t really taught what computer science actually means, and are half as likely to be encouraged to study it. The words females unassociated with computer science used to describe it were “boring,” “technology,” and “difficult.”
4. 57% of bachelor’s degrees earned by women, 12% of computer science degrees Much of this has to do with exposure to computer science before college and during college. According to Code.org, nine out of ten schools don’t even offer computer science classes, and in 28 out of 50 states, computer science doesn’t count towards a math or science credit.
5. Google’s workforce is only 30% female The company released this information back in May, along with its leadership stats: 79% male. And this isn’t just a Google problem — the same goes for Yahoo, who employs 37% women, Facebook, which is 31%, and LinkedIn, which employs 39%.
But, Google has since made strides to tackle the issue. It announced it will invest $50 million in programs to get girls more interested in STEM education and coding with a “Made With Code” campaign. Some of the money will go to Girls Who Code and Black Girls Code, The company is also working with Girl Scouts of America and female celebrities to spark girls’ interests in computer science.
