Tolerance

To my dismay I read this blog by Michael Arrington of TechCrunch. TechCrunch provide interesting information about the movers and shakers in the start up technology world. It is important that we have this. It is important that we recognise that Michael is a journalist and as such deserves all the respect and protection that so many journalists fail to get and die for.

In another blog, Adam Frost talks about a misunderstanding about they way Barack Obama's name is to be signed and written in American Sign Language. From my perspective the coolest thing about this controversy is that it is only possible thanks to SignWriting.

Michael has had some really nasty experiences. There is no excuse for how he was treated. His tolerance is now at the breaking point. Adam recognised a situation where an injustice was done to a student. He apologised publicly and by doing so he demonstrated understanding and tolerance.

Michael wrote that some things need to change. I can only agree and wish him well.
Thanks,
