Profile in wussiness ...

... Negroponte’s Judgment Call on Free Speech. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)


  1. This has nothing to do with freedom of speech, because it doesn't involve government censorship in any way: it's editorial and institutional discretion.

    But yes, it is also definitely spineless.

  2. I quite agree, Daniel. They're free to do as they like, including be, as you put it so nicely, spineless. Of course - and I say this as someone who spent a good may years working for various institutions, both public and private, spinelessness pretty much comes with the territory.
