@daringfireball IF they knew about this did the NSA, as a government agency purportedly funded to protect our security, have a responsibility to inform Apple and get it fixed to protect American citizens and prevent crime? I say yes.
@spacekatgal so perhaps what is needed is a self help list of types of this kind of behavior with examples so we can learn to recognize and catch ourselves when we stumble and do one. Success is about compassionate education.
@spacekatgal I actually take this as a good thing: to me it suggests that we’re making progress as a society. The easy low hanging fruit is done and now we move on to the more difficult and subtle issues.
@mattgemmell these then would become fodder for the cartoon strip he had published in the local paper. I imagine writers do similar things - acquire input in quantity and then merge, morph, and make up characters from this soup of inspiration. ?
@mattgemmell I’ve been thinking about that post a lot since reading it (a sign of how good it is). I think I disagree with your thesis. My cartoonist friend & I would go “people watch” at places like the airport, mall, etc, & imagine back stories for them.
