Jul. 16, 2016 Ghostbusters In Silicon Valley

The latest Ghostbusters movie was fun and actually said a lot about today’s workplace. The actors were hilarious and there were lots of cameos from the first movie. The special effects were okay. Maybe it was too close to home for fanboys here in Silicon Valley. It is funny to listen to men who have no trouble with technological change freak out over social change. They seem threatened by a story about  women over forty with technical skills working as a team and trying to manage their own careers. Well guys, get used to it or watch the original on VHS.

Despite them, things are progressing. Smart companies are hiring women in senior technical positions at above market rates.  One hiring manager said it was a good idea to hire now than scramble for talent after November. Get used to that too.
