Basecamp bans societal and political discussion in the workplace
In this episode Chris & Ben discuss Bascamp’s decision to ban societal and political discussion at work.
The incident at Basecamp happened in April 2021 so by the time we came to record this episode we had more of the story than some of the initial reports did.
Chris has pieced together much of the story and gives an overview of what happened.
We then look at some of the problems with such decisions and how politics and political language is intrinsically linked to both technology and workplace culture.
