I am not a big fan of posting political stuff so I will keep this short, but I believe this is important.

"...they don't actually vote until the convention". Luis Miranda - Communications Director at Democratic National Committee.

Mozilla - open source - closed mind. Moving to Chrome.
So Brendan Eich has stepped down as Mozilla CEO. While I am happy that this will help Mozilla get over this controversy (they are a good organization doing good work), I can't help but feel rather saddened by this turn of events.

As I have posted about before-hand, much as I thoroughly condemn Eich's views on gay marriage, I support his right to have his own views and to support whichever campaigns he chooses in his personal life. I don't presume that his politics will affect his leadership at Mozilla and I have seen zero evidence to suggest any of this would compromise his capabilities as an effective CEO and leader.

Instead what happened here was that he had his reputation dragged through the mud by some people who oppose his views, presumably in the interests of fighting the good fight for marriage equality. If he had abused his leadership at Mozilla I would understand the scandal, but instead it just feels like bullying to me.

I believe in equality, and I believe in gay marriage, but I don't believe in achieving equality using approaches like this.
