Suppression of critics.

After writing a report criticizing reliance on Microsoft's products and Microsoft's efforts to strengthen its monopoly position as threats to national security, Dan Geer has lost his position as the CTO of @stake (@stake has already removed his name from the company website). Some reports say that he was fired, while others are careful to point out that @stake would not say whether Geer resigned or was fired. Scary indeed. To those that agree with the report's findings, this should be a call to arms. The time to speak out is now.
