I was a speaker at PAWGOV – 2014

18 September 2014

I was honored to have the opportunity to speak at the Predictive Analytics World for Government this past Tuesday. My talk was not a hard science/math discussion. Rather, my presentation was about people … people I call “The Interpreters”. Interpreters are the people who understand the mission of the organization and have sufficient technical capability […]

Firefox, the purveyor of open source web browsing and other fan favorite software programs, has forced-out its CEO, Brandon Eich, because he donated money to a cause he believed in — the protection of the centuries old definition of marriage.
