Quote of the Day July 19 2009

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom, It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”

–William Pitt, before the House of Commons, November 18, 1783

I ended up reading this last night and find it directly tied to Joe’s
Just One Question. The bigots claim it’s out of the necessity for safety, but the truth is it’s want of control.

Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do it’s thing.
