I had never heard of social network giants Facebook and Twitter before my first meeting with the former Google executive, James Damore.
“I’m just a regular guy who was on Twitter and Facebook and Google,” I said, to which he responded, “Really?
That’s what I’m doing?
I was a little naive.”
The idea that I was being manipulated by “fake news” was a lie.
“Well, actually I was,” I replied.
“That’s how I felt.”
“And that’s what we all felt, yeah.”
He told me he’s had a “great” time working at Google.
And now he’s “happy” at the company.
“It’s a great company,” he told me, adding that he had a great time at Facebook, which he said was “not as friendly”.
Damore’s allegations that Google was not sufficiently supportive of his research into gender differences in the workplace prompted him to leave his job in February.
He then started a new one at Facebook.
After an emotional farewell to his colleagues and friends, Damore made a brief appearance at a town hall meeting in North Carolina.
“What are you going to do about it?” he asked.
“Because I am going to be honest.
I’m going to leave Google,” he said.
“If I’m leaving Google, I’m not leaving Google alone.
I don’t want you to be afraid.
I want you all to be free to be who you want to be.”
I asked Damore how he felt about the controversy that surrounded him.
“Honestly, it’s been great,” he replied.
He added that he was “very lucky” that his colleagues had supported him.
Damore was fired in August and his dismissal was later overturned.
He said he was forced to “retire” in order to pursue his research, which has since been funded by the US National Science Foundation and funded by a number of foundations.
He had planned to spend a year “doing research” but he was unable to finish the research because he had been under pressure from his former employer, the US Department of Education.
The US Department in a statement said: ‘We understand that Mr Damor’s case is unique and are working to support him in his efforts to address the issues raised.” “
The HHS is committed to ensuring that individuals receive the training they need to succeed in their jobs and is committed a comprehensive review of the process of employee grievance procedures.”
The US Department in a statement said: ‘We understand that Mr Damor’s case is unique and are working to support him in his efforts to address the issues raised.
“Damore also took the opportunity to respond to a series of questions he had raised in the past.
“Women are statistically much more likely to be depressed, have a lower quality of life, less well educated, less likely to have a good job and have higher rates of divorce, which are all really important factors for families.” “
When I was doing my research, I was looking at the data and it was pretty clear that there were differences between men and women, between the sexes,” he wrote.
“Women are statistically much more likely to be depressed, have a lower quality of life, less well educated, less likely to have a good job and have higher rates of divorce, which are all really important factors for families.”
Damor also said he felt he was being “unfairly” accused of having a political agenda.
“Why are you so critical of Google?” he wrote, “because of its politics?”
He also wrote that Google’s policy of using its algorithms to create “trending news” and “top trending” stories, which is to say, articles that are generally considered to be newsworthy, was “a blatant attempt to influence opinion and policy” in the US.
Damors comments also included claims that the Google search algorithm was biased against men.
Damores claims Damore has been accused of making sexist comments in a series the “trolls” of his followers on social media.
He has also claimed that Google had a policy in place in 2014 that made it difficult for him to have an office.
But Damore said his firing had nothing to do with the comments he had made about women in the last year.
He wrote: “I have never been accused or accused of any kind of misconduct or harassment in any of my work, I am simply a human being who works for a company with a clear code of conduct and a clear commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
“I had been subjected to a number very unpleasant and harassing and degrading emails and comments by some of the trolls, and I do not condone their behaviour,” he continued.
Damoring’s allegations have been supported by dozens of people, including his former boss, former Google CEO Sundar Pichai.
“There was a policy change in 2014, which was a mistake,” Pichais told BuzzFeed News.
Google should have followed that policy and not had a culture where we would have
