ICYMI: Check this article I wrote for global business news site Quartz ( http://qz.com ) about the whole +Brendan Eich fiasco with Mozilla. Mozilla made a huge mistake by letting the inventor of Javascript resign. And the internet just made an even bigger mistake by convincing him to do so.

Its sort of sad I think though I admit that Im very affected by it.  It definately helps in the winter though when the cold weather keeps ppl in.  But definately do try to get out in the summer and use sites like meetup.com to get out and meet people!
