    That's hilarious and what perfect coincidence that the pilot's own seat did not get ejected.

    I strive to avoid Teflon as much as I can as it behaves as a toxin and the manufacturer, DuPont, is highly unethical about it.

    That's a terrible way to give notice to your customers. Four days notice, are you kidding me?

    Great analysis, however, the author should have placed this disclosure for their conflict of interest: Read a lot like an investment op-ed with a looking forward statement towards the end.

    Previously, he led Rider Growth at Uber, advised/invested in dozens of startups, and has been writing for over a decade. He resides in San Francisco Bay Area

    I have to agree with the opinion that more scrutiny should have been placed on Wikimedia's Foundation in this matter. As open and relatively accurate Wikipedia can be as for aggregating an encyclopedia with references from other source materials, more extensive vetting has to be made. In this case, Nathaniel White wrongfully being misidentified and having their likeness matched to a criminal. How would that process look? I don't know.

    In reference to the Black Lives Matter section of the opinion article, I couldn't really find a correlation between the race of Nathaniel White and this matter. Is the author trying to correlate that systemic racism that exists is part of why the Wikimedia Foundation's nonchalant reaction to an individual's name being tainted?
