Wow

<p>A NASA camera on Mars has captured what appears to be artificial light emanating outward from the planet's surface.</p> <p>The photo, beamed millions of miles from Mars to the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., was taken last week, apparently by one of two NASA rovers on the red planet.</p>

Since 'intolerance' is a negative then intolerance of intolerance = tolerance. I think he has every right to publicly speak his mind and face no backlash from the government. However when he speaks an idea I don't like why am I not allowed to then say I don't like it and that I don't want to associate myself with him? Do I not have the right to freely choose with whom I want to associate?  

For the budding constitutionalists out there I'll point out that illegal / immoral discrimination is based on factors over which a person has no control such as the color of your skin, gender, or sexual orientation. Ideas are always a choice and if we could not discriminate against ideas and people we don't like for having those ideas human society would cease to function. Every time we choose one thing over another we are discriminating. 
The resignation of Mozilla's CEO amid outrage that he supported an anti-gay marriage campaign is prompting concerns about how Silicon Valley's strongly liberal culture might quash the very openness that is at the region's foundation.

Here his political actions were causing demonstrable harm to the continued operation of the company. I don't think the protections for political activity extends to such a situation.

Yeah! Now that is how you do it right! "The California Air National Guard dispatched a team of rescuers, who parachuted into the water and reached the disabled vessel. The team was able to stabilize the girl and pointed the sailboat toward Mexico, though officials didn't immediately release what was wrong with the vessel."

Story
Tagline
Product guy, freethinker, and uncaged monkey in Silicon Valley.
Introduction
Analyzing market needs, developing products that companies can get to market, and driving those products into the market is what I love to do.

You need to ask the right question if you want the right answer, that is how I drive innovation.

I also organize the Redwood City Silicon Valley Networking Meetup - stop on by and say hi. Just follow the Meetup link at the bottom of this column.

Bragging rights
I decoded the Beatrice Foods football scratchoff game in 1986 and "won" over $16,000. Decoded the gameplay of the Business Strategy computer simulation and led my team to the biggest victory in the history of the program at UCSC. David D. Friedman was my thesis advisor at SC Law.
