Ellen Pao Trial

Just heard that the Ellen Pao jury reached a verdict and will be announced soon. For people not familiar, Ellen Pao has brought a sexual discrimination lawsuit against fabled Silicon Valley venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins (don’t even get started on Tom Perkins). Out of everything, it’s depressing to read that “Now, venture capital firms will be even less likely to hire women.” There’s plenty of sexism in the valley, perhaps people will really start to talk about it and face up to it.
