Whelp. That didn't last long... http://www.cbsnews…

This is seriously funny.
a few quotes:
"The personal safety of Google employees was cited as the reason for the cancellation"
"Pichai said he had heard from several employees concerned about online harassment they would receive"
So - online harassment is a safety issue?

"He [Pichai] said it's "not OK" for employees to feel that they can't "safely express their views (especially those with a minority viewpoint)." "
So - it's not OK that an employee got fired for expressing minority viewpoint?

"we will find several forums... where people can feel comfortable to speak freely."

"The vast majority of you are very supportive of our decision.
A smaller percentage of you wish we would do more.
And some are worried that you cannot speak out at work freely."
do more? not just fire, but also incinerate?
why are some worried they cannot speak freely?

"All of your voices and opinions matter...and I want to hear them."
I'm sure he wants. only one fired for diversity is hardly enough.
