A really good article on second-hand smoke over at Tech Central Station by Sydney Smith includes:
Smoking is bad and smoking around non-smokers without their permission is rude. But exaggerating the dangers that smokers pose to non-smokers is not wise. For one thing, it undermines the credibility of the medical profession. For another, it promotes an attitude of intolerance that should give us pause in a free society. The way things are going, it will be only a matter of time before a smoker is charged with manslaughter for his co-worker's heart attack.Also a really interesting article by Andy Kessler about the Google float:
There are certain unwritten rules for structuring a tech company and filing for an initial public offering and Google just broke them all.
