Human rights trump religious freedoms. In other words, your right to be as stupid as you want stops at restricting anyone else from basic human rights, including equality under the law. For an extreme example, the human right to live can not be infringed even if your religion believes in killing people. Equality under the law is a basic human right, therefore, your religious beliefs can not impose inequality, no matter how strongly you worship hatred/bigotry.

Introduction
Disclaimer: I do not speak for my current, prior, nor future employer(s) unless expressly noted. All my views and software posted publicly are my own.

My standards development (on github):
  • I created the revolutionary Up™ Langauge ... based on XUPL. (still pre-alpha)
  • XUPL - a terse (and isomorphic) alternative to XML (and yes, better than JSON, YAML, ... too, gasp!)
Let's Kick The Clouds and not just demand corporate accountability. Use the market to force it.

I work primarily in Go, JavaScript, C/ObjC, Python, and Bash.

My focus is API Design.
