The importance of taking time to respond..

An edited clip, taken out of context, leads to a woman being accused of racism on national TV and being forced to resign. And all along she was doing the right thing!

I'm glad that she was exonerated - and the family on the other side reached back out and testified on her behalf.

Why didn't the people in charge take time to investigate and then respond?

And are the people who put out the edited clips going to get away with it?

Now reading: Mistborn, Brandon Sanderson

Started reading again, somehow. Book recommended by Glen, and the first two chapters have been pretty interesting.

Sam now has a Facebook page

Please look for him there, under Sam Forest Loo Lim!

Am I a PC?

No, not an existential topic today. PC harddisk is slowly failing - delayed write failures and now I can't even scan my disk for errors, so time to start preparing for the worst. Now to figure out if I should replace it with a Mac or PC.

Advice, anyone?

A footsoldier in the Holy Order

Via Shiyan:

From Dr. Goh’s final speech in office:

“To the New Guards soon joining us, may I say this: Welcome to you. Some of you will discover before long that you have joined a Holy Order that expects total commitment from you. That will be your moment of truth. You will then regard the present condition of the Republic not as a pinnacle of achievement but as a base from which to scale new heights.”

Massively inspired on one level, and on another level it sounds very Star Wars!
