  • Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted in 1948 in a spirit of revulsion over the evils of fascism…asserts the right of human beings in ways that are now entrenched in the theory and (most of the time) the practice of liberal democracy. It upholds the right of people to live in freedom from persecution and arbitrary arrest; to hold any faith or none; to change religion; and to enjoy freedom of expression, which by any fair definition includes freedom to agree or disagree with the tenets of any religion.
    In other words, it protects individuals—not religions, or any other set of beliefs. And this is a vital distinction. For it is not possible systematically to protect religions or their followers from offence without infringing the right of individuals.
  • It’s time you set things right and make your Windows computer faster. Trust me: These five programs are all that you’ll need to make Windows run faster on your computer. Nothing else. Take my word for it: use the following programs and then come back and tell me how your Windows computer runs faster.
  • PB made a point in a talk once that I now mention to every startup we fund: that it's better, initially, to make a small number of users really love you than a large number kind of like you. If I could tell startups only ten sentences, this would be one of them.
