I’ve been in the work force for eighteen years now, and only in the last four or so has this notion of CYA really reared its head. I’m going to attempt to define it, so let me know if I’m missing something. In the cases where i’ve been told to C-My-A or that someone else […]

Has anybody tried the Brave browser yet, founded by former Mozilla exec Brendan Eich? I’m a sucker for alternative browsers. I use Epic (not available for Linux) and Pale Moon (not available for Mac), mostly. Brave is still in the dev stage, but I see it’s available as an installer for Windows, Mac, and Linux. Preview […]

No need to do so any […]

Don’t Bother Me With Your Hypotheticals — Frank Soto

 

Ever have a conversation with a friend that just leaves you ready to scream by the end of it? I just had one of those myself and my faith in humanity is falling fast.

As the topic of Donald Sterling came up, I made an off-handed remark that it is scary that everything private can be used against you publicly these days. A friend — who we will call Bob — replied that he didn’t see anything wrong with it.

This morning, inspired by the flap-doodle over Mozilla’s anti-same sex marriage ex-CEO Brendan Eich, I went poking through the lists of Proposition 8 campaign contributors (which per California and Federal laws are available to the public here). After some trying Facebook debates on the subject with an old friend who now works in the tech […]
