PSA: Julia Silge - Writing a Letter to DataCamp

As a member of the data community, you should read this. Reading this post made me upset, angry, and frustrated.

DataCamp's board and Jonathan Cornelissen, its CEO and the offender, have since both responded to what has become a real crisis for the company. The CEO is now on an indefinite leave of absence. Hopefully that becomes permanent.

Julia's post is remarkably constructive, all things considered:

I am an optimist and still hold out hope for the folks at DataCamp to demonstrate that I (and the broader community) should trust them.

I hope that, for the sake of the community, jettisoning Cornelissen begins a process that regains that trust.
