Saw this article ‘Political correctness comes to the tech arena’ about government officials in California asking equipment manufacturers to stop using the terms ‘master’ and ‘slave. Perhaps it’s because I live in a country which never knew slavery, but I find it hard to get excited. Then again political correctness is all pervasive. There’s a classic tale of, I think, an Australian customs officer confiscating a book called something like ‘Fun in Bed’ many years ago. Pity he never actually opened the cover – it was a book of games for kids.
