I've always believed you should judge a person not solely by those things they do wrong, but how they deal with those events afterwards. Robert Scoble just failed that test.
Does Shard structural engineer Roma Agrawal really deserve a feature that starts off by focusing on her sex appeal?
Ah, finally somebody acknowledges the truth – whatever people say, the sexiest part of a woman’s body is her shoulders.
Ian Betteridge tears into Dave Winer for his posts about the Blogher conference for women. (What was Winer doing there anyway?)
So, the courts have ruled that forcing a man to wear a suit and tie while the women wear t-shirts and football tops is sex discrimination. Quite right, too. What gets me is that everyone seems to be reacting as if he’s trying to win the right to dress down rather than equalise the balance between the sexes. The obviousl solution is for the JobCentre to tighten up their rules for women’s clothing, rather than loosen those for men.
Yet, the simple fact that it’s harder to define a code for women than the simple men’s “shirt, suit and tie” means they run scared of the whole issue. Cowardly public sector management is half the problem with the UK right now.
