A short one this week with minimal commentary.

  • YouTuber Tyler McVicker digs into what it’s like to work at Valve Software. Most reviews share common themes: cliques; invisible hierarchiers; no real HR; employee review is a terrible process; too much competition and inequality; and many projects don’t work and take too long. Not the ideal workplace people imagined, huh?
  • Spoilers for this week’s season 5 premiere of Jane the Virgin: Kathryn VanArendonk and Maria Elena Fernandez of Vulture write about how series star Gina Rodriguez, stepping into the director’s chair for the first time, pulled off her seven-minute single-take monologue.

That’s all for now. See you later.
