Actually I mentioned this too. I compared humans to Birds. A female bird is a drawn to a male bird by way of his signing and nest making. A strong nest means that he can protect her and the baby bird. That male bird will reproduce. Humans for the most part don't do this. There are societal elements to human mating. People that wouldn't be able to have offspring in a more natural world now do.


You can't be serious.

Chicks are drawn to certain attributes.

honest question: if he had donated to a white nationalist foundation and the word got out and everyone got outraged, would you disagree with the quasi mob mentality that resulted in the company pressuring him to step down?

i'm not being rhetorical or postbaiting you, i'm genuinely curious.


You are post baiting me.

what about the decision made by mozilla to fire the guy do you disagree with? do you disagree with their right to fire a guy who's causing them a massive PR hit? do you disagree with the people who are angry with him for donating money to a group opposing civil rights for a massive sector of society? what do you propose as an alternative?


He stepped down.

He stepped down.

I disagree with a quasi mob mentality.

Get angry all you want. I don't like his stance, doesn't mean I need to go after his work over such a small contribution. Lost on this is the article I posted where he has done work to end workplace discrimination.

People need more to do.

So what we have here is a very very rich dude gave what equates to maybe $2 to most of the posters here to a controversial political advocacy.

 

Then OKCupid does a big PR campaign off of it to generate business.

 

And we have 12 pages of you all swallowing the hook, line and sinker.

“How I’ve conducted myself in my 16 years at Mozilla. I’ve always kept my personal beliefs out of it,” Eich says. “We won’t succeed in the mission if people can’t leave irrelevant, exclusionary stuff at the door.”

Mozilla’s mission is one of the broadest, most ambitious, and even idealistic statements you could concoct. It informs the foundation/corporation’s strategies to take over the world not for financial gain but for individual freedom, technological advancement, cultural good, and improved quality of life.

As far as personal differences go, one Mozillan put it this way:

If we start to try to make “Mozilla” mean “those people who share not only the Mozilla mission but also my general political/social/religious/environmental view,” we will fail. If we focus Mozilla on our shared consensus regarding the Mozilla mission and manifesto, then the opportunities before us are enormous.

Mozilla’s diversity is a success condition. Our mission and our goal is truly global. Our mission taps into a shared desire for respect and control and user sovereignty that runs across cultures and across many other worldviews. We may even offend each other in some of our other views. Despite this, we share a commitment to the Mozilla mission. This is a remarkable achievement and important to our continued success.

Those are words Eich says he agrees with wholeheartedly. In our conversation, he tells me that the mission fails if discrimination prevails.

“Everything I’ve done has been about meeting people where they are and treating people equally,” Eich says.

“People find it hard to believe, but I want to do an even better job of being inclusive at Mozilla.”

In fact, Eich is sponsoring Ascend, a project that helps “underemployed, LGBTQ, Latin@, and African American populations” get in-depth technical training and support from the open-source community.
