1/ The latest tech (Uber) lawsuit underscores a frightening blind spot in Silicon Valley techcrunch.com/2017/10/26/thr…
2/ The people who are building driverless cars/drone delivery/cameras/health tech/fintech are responsible for much of this behavior
3/ And it is their rush for growth, dash for cash, and quest for the next big thing that should greatly concern us all
4/ Zuck famously said that FB did not have a Fake News problem npr.org/sections/allte…
5/ And this is literally the tip of the iceberg. FB knew people could be influenced by what they were exposed to on their platform.
6/ As far back as 2014, FB knew the power of the platform and took 0 steps to prevent it from being used in this way forbes.com/sites/kashmirh…
7/ If co's are ok underpaying women/people of color and VC's are ok covering up partners harassment what does that portend for the future
8/ Women/POC are techs early warning system. What happens to us spills over Like the 2016 election spilled onto unsuspecting liberals
9/ Much like 2016 it will be driven by the platforms created by the very people who are signing off on the settlements and crafting the NDAs
10/Tech needs to move beyond denying their culpability and begin to address this by building inclusive environments. @projectinclude
11/VC's need to stop protecting the old boys club and start adding Women/POC with a quickness @KaporCapital
12/We as consumers/users have to use the power of our wallets and influence to keep the pressure on #DiversityAndInclusion #BlackTwitter
