Wow, he seems to be on the downhill slide there. Sounding the cautious
note about new technology is one thing, advocating the death of children
and restrictions on "speech" are going a little too far. Perhaps we are
seeing the descent of an individual into Luddism here? I wonder if it
would help us spot it in others in the media in future.
Wonder how long he'll last in his current position? Seems his ideas aren't
in line with most of his own company, which at that level can lead to conflict.
"If you can't take a little bloody nose, maybe you ought to go back home and
crawl under your bed. It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures
to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid."
