PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless I'm currently reading Jerry Kaplan's excellent book "Startup: a Silicon Valley adventure". In this book, Kaplan, founder and CEO of GO Corp., details the founding, financing and eventual demise of his highly innovative company, including the development and workings of their product. What's so surprising about this book is just how timeless it really is - the names and products may have changed, but the business practices and company attitudes surely haven't.

(didn't take us long to invoke Godwin's law.)


Having read OSNews for a while now, I think OSNews is a special case. Allegations of bias, with the implication that it is automatically bad, is the OSNews equivalent of Godwin.

Not EVERY point of view is equally correct. Some are more correct than others. Thus, the accusation of bias is used in much the same way Nazi/Hitler comparisons are used to stop rational discussion of a topic.

Frankly, I was amazed that it took 6 pages before someone tried to short-circuit a discussion by crying bias.
