The former Reddit CEO Yishan Wong takes to the popular news site to reveal more details in what has evolved into a corporate soap opera.
Ex-Facebooker Bethanye Blount spent less than two months at Reddit before, she says, she realized that the social-news site's plans for the future may be unworkable.
Former Reddit CEO Yishan Wong says co-founder Alexis Ohanian was behind the abrupt dismissal of popular executive Victoria Taylor and let Pao "take the heat," leading to her resignation.
Reddit's interim CEO resigns after criticism over the firing of a key employee and the way the company handled harassment and other issues on the site. This is her letter to the community.
Pao, a polarizing figure in Silicon Valley after a high-profile gender discrimination suit, stepped down as the leader of the popular social-networking and news site after hundreds of thousands called for her to resign.
The interim CEO's apology falls on deaf ears after the firing of a key staffer stirs new policies. Poor communication with Reddit users hasn't helped.
That dollar figure to cover legal fees is a quarter of what Pao's former employer had requested. "I think I got the right ballpark," the judge says.
A judge tentatively orders Pao to pay up, but the amount is only a quarter of what her former employer had requested.
The venture capital firm claims in court filing opposing Pao's request to drop legal fees that she asked the firm for millions in exchange for not appealing the case.
Pao files notice of appeal loss in landmark sex discrimination case against storied VC firm Kleiner Perkins.
