Overheard: "Mark Zuckerberg wannabes" propose website called "Hofactor" about slutty girlfriends

Today's Los Angeles Times letter to the editor, because our voices matter:

Re "Sexism at issue in Silicon Valley," Oct. 24

What The Times doesn't consider is what I call the "jerk quotient" — and in the technology industry, it is exceptionally high. The only other industry where women can encounter a comparable number of jerks is the banking industry — and look what happened there.

I remember sitting in a Starbucks and eavesdropping on a bunch of Mark Zuckerberg wannabes. Their big idea? A website that was a cross between Facebook and "The X Factor" called "Hofactor," where men could post comments about how slutty their girlfriends were and vote for the biggest sluts.

They were serious about this. No wonder women don't want to work in Silicon Valley.

Video Mid Day Distraction- Australian Chief of Army Shows How To Deal With "Unacceptable Behaviour" In The Military

BIM, BAM, BOOM. Via.

If you become aware of any individual degrading another, then show moral courage and take a stand against it. No one has ever explained to me how the exploitation or degradation of others enhances capability or honors the traditions of the Australian army. I will be ruthless in ridding the army of people who cannot live up to its values and I need every one of you to support me in achieving this.

The standard you walk past is the standard you accept. That goes for all of us, but especially those who by their rank have a leadership role.
