3.12.15 NYT article by Clair Cain Miller, “The Kleiner Perkins Lawsuit, and Rethinking the Confidence-Driven Workplace.”

“Interesting discussion of the ‘interrupt-driven’ environment at Kleiner Perkins. In my opinion, this phenomenon is an example of simple bullying by boys who likely don’t have the intellectual horsepower (or maturity) to study ideas carefully. Since when is a board room supposed to be run like a frat house? Name one idea that came out of this process that can match things like ‘relativity theory,’ ‘black holes,’ Beethoven’s symphonies, and the like–all of which came from the exact opposite environment. For a great counterpoint, see Susan Cain’s Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.”
