Our future is written in the minds of our children. Unfortunately, it’s looking like that future will be full of would-be YouTubers and influencers. Recently, Google was fined $170 million over YouTube’s inappropriate data collection from children.
Last Thursday in Google offices all over the world, employees poured out onto the streets in protest of the company’s treatment of sexual misconduct. These widespread walkouts of 20,000 Google employees were in reaction to a New York Times report on how the company has protected executives accused of sexual harassment. Holding signs reading, “Ok Google, set a timer for ‘up’” and “Ok Google, really?” workers responded to the unfair treatment of women, specifically in the case of Andy Rubin, the creator of Android mobile software.
