A couple of interesting links

It's a few months old, but Sarah Mei's post about why she doesn't work at Google puts her finger on one of the differentiators between success and failure: smart people vs smart people who get shit done.

As I get older, I'm becoming more aware of the explicit and implicit ageism in tech.

This techcrunch article saying women in tech should stop blaming the men because everyone loves the women pretty much assumes its conclusion from the get-go:

Success in Silicon Valley, most would agree, is more merit driven than almost any other place in the world. It doesn’t matter how old you are, what sex you are, what politics you support or what color you are. If your idea rocks and you can execute, you can change the world and/or get really, stinking rich.
