I have a new piece up at Model View Culture: 'Killing the Messenger at Mozilla: Hero worship, “meritocracy” and the Eich crisis.'

Postscript:
I asked MVC to make the following edits to the article, based on comments made by [personal profile] graydon2 and Lukas:
1) change "former Mozilla COO Ryan Merkley" to "former Mozilla Foundation COO Ryan Merkley"
2) change "whether or not Mozilla should have a code of conduct (it never adopted one)" to "whether or not Mozilla should have a code of conduct (it never adopted one, instead adopting a weak set of community participation guidelines)"

(no subject)

Minor nit re: "... whether or not Mozilla should have a code of conduct (it never adopted one)"

We adopted a thing called the community participation guidelines, which I'm quite critical of for its promotion of false equivalences and whitewashing of oppression, but it's what people will point to as the outcome of that earlier episode.

Also moz.governance is not internal. It's a public newsgroup, all sorts of people can post, there's no level of mozilla-ness required, org, corp, volunteer or otherwise.

Otherwise solid writing.
