We are developing the social individualist meta-context for the future. From the very serious to the extremely frivolous... lets see what is on the mind of the Samizdata people.

Samizdata, derived from Samizdat /n. - a system of clandestine publication of banned literature in the USSR [Russ.,= self-publishing house]

Samizdata quote of the day

Any CEO who thinks his sexuality is the greatest gift god has given him, is not keeping his eye on the balls I want him to.

    I realize this is about the iCEO, but wouldn’t RAB’s comment really depend on what sort of company the CEO is CEO of?

    I realize there’s probably no publicly traded gay porn companies, but it /could/ happen.

    Yes indeed.

    The head of a company should be focused on the products of that company.

    And if he must compare California to Alabama – perhaps he should focus on things such as the taxation and business regulation of Alabama compared to that of California.

    Not putting pressure on the State of Alabama to allow boys (who declare they are “really” girls) to use the girls toilet at school (“transgender rights”).

    The head of such a large company should have other things to think about – he should not focus on such things as whether Alabama enforces such “rights”.

    Sometimes I wonder if the incomparable The Onion was onto something with this.
