View Full Version : Jarvis on Obama

08-23-2013, 11:38 AM

If you don't know who Jarvis is, look him up. He s a brilliant professor out of New York. He is an unabashed liberal, with a brain. I follow his writings and his brilliant insight into tech journalism and associated issues that are all things tech. I have respect for his views and watch him on the Tech Tv network weekly, via Apple TV. He makes me think.

He also calls it like it is.

He writes for many different publications. Check out the above link

This is a provocative passage

"You could decide to respect the efforts of whistleblowers as courageous practitioners of civil disobedience who are sacrificing much in their efforts to protect lives and democracy. If they are the Martin Luther Kings of our age, then call off Bull Connor's digital dogs and fire hoses, will you? "

As someone who could arguably open with much of the same preamble as Jarvis does, he says it pretty well.
