A lot of folks have been making a big deal the past few days about Google employee David Barksdale. If you haven’t caught the coverage, the fuss is centered around this one employee — a mid-twenties “site reliability engineer” — who (allegedly) inappropriately used his position of authority and corresponding elevated levels of access and privilege to view the private data of a number of individuals. The fact that the data included details of a few individuals who were minors — well, that wasn’t good. Anyway, this thing is turning into quite the brouhaha.
