Is Glen Weyl going to quit Microsoft?
October 25, 2015
Glen Weyl is a researcher at Microsoft. He started to work at Microsoft on October 21, 2015.
Two days later, in an opinion piece in the Washington Post co-authored with Steven Levitsky, he called to boycott Israel (October 23, 2015).
Perhaps Weyl doesn't know, but Microsoft built its first R&D center outside the US in Israel.
From Microsoft's website: "Microsoft Israel R&D Center is one of Microsoft's three strategic global development centers and home to some of the company's most exciting and innovative technologies."
Also, this week we heard that Microsoft purchased Secure Islands, the 5th Israeli company purchased by Microsoft since the beginning of 2015 alone!
Is Glen Weyl calling to boycott Microsoft Israel as well?
Do you think Glen Weyl will put his money where his mouth is and quit his job at Microsoft, as an act of BDS?
We asked him on Twitter. We’re waiting for his answer.
Share widely and let Microsoft know what you think of their new employee.
