I put a quarter in the siren. Ten minutes later, I was on the scene. It was a normal office building, strangled by public sidewalks.

Truly one of the most misunderstood jobs in America today. #education   #edtech   #schools  
A single individual acts on a daily basis as the link between a large bureaucratic system and the daily experiences of a large number of children and adults.

Sponsoring laws which discriminate against minorities does not really qualify as discourse...    more of a despicable act really.

As +D. Evan Mulvihill  suggests he could have stayed with Mozilla, it is not like anyone was trying to pass a law to ban him from the job.

The dictionary's very purpose demands that it have offensive entries. Don't censor it. #lgbt #lgbtrights
What a dictionary *isn't* is a normative look at what we desire words to mean. There are a LOT of offensive entries in the dictionary, and Apple isn't the culprit. Not sure of their source, but I found the same definition of “gay” in the Oxford English Dictionary. But here's one that's worse.
