@aral We are Borg, you have been assimilated. Resistance is futile.

@aral I would love to know how anybody from Facebook could show themselves at a "human rights" conference with what has happened in Myanmar. But still this conference would take their money and proudly display it with no word about that state of affairs.

@aral Wow. Let's have a human rights conference sponsored by tech companies that routinely provide data on dissidents or censorship services for counties that oppress human rights!
