Was Brendan Eich removed to get closed source DRM into Firefox?
It’s quite a theory, and I’m not sure what to make of it, but via Instapundit I ran into the allegation that the real reason Brendan Eich was removed as the head of Mozilla wasn’t the homosexual “marriage” issue at all, but rather that he stood in the way between Hollywood-friendly restrictions called Digital Rights Managment (“DRM”) being added to the open source browser Firefox.

Tech at Night: The Obama FCC meets, and is pretty terrible.
So the European Union has invented a “right to be forgotten”, that is forcing Google to censor its results. Given the history of Nazi war criminals trying desperately to be forgotten, this is an odd thing for the EU to be doing.

If you like your neighborhood you can keep your neighborhood
One of the more entertaining traits of liberals is their unflinching desire to Balkanize the United States into a loose amalgam of racial and ethnic grievance groups. Unhappy with the existence of only two sexes, liberals have now created “sexual orientation” so that the psychologically disordered can be celebrated.

Much of what the federal government does in this post-constitutional era is not only superfluous but deleterious to economic | Read More »
Addled Harry Reid advocates amending the Constitution to restrict free speech
