Cisco Q&A


Q: Do you have any moral problems with helping to make surveillance technology more efficient?

A: I have some moral and ethical issues, but I think quite frankly that the place to argue this is in Congress and in the courtroom, not a service provider's machine room when he's staring down the barrel of a subpoena.

He's right. Arguing against a company that provides something the government wants is backward, as long as arguing with the government is right & protected. If we're in Russia, then yes, I'd quit buying Cisco.
