Google had a very nice party, a throwback to the glorious DotCom days, last night. Met a lot of old friends there. Along the ship canal, just W of the Fremont Bridge. Lots of glow-in-the-dark tall beverage cups. Lots of geeks and geek wannabees.

From the McIver article:

He said he believes he was prosecuted because of his political position.

Google's "perks" are to get their employees to never leave the building, keep working around the clock; bet they have those new "nap pods" some Carnegie-Mellon U. people designed...

Bullshit. He was prosecuted like anyone else would be because there is a law saying if there is a dv call someone has to go to the pokey. As thios is a seizure based on a general law and not any individual facts or probable cause all lovers of civil rights should be up in arms about it and if McIver was victimized under it he should, too.

But at least he didn't claim it was due to race or Hillary Clinton.

Condemnation? Hell, yes!

Exoneration? Not so much.
