Sure. They guy who just got out of jail for mass-murder can cut my lawn. He can manage the local Wal-Mart. He can teach English-as-a-Second-Language classes to orphan refugees. Just... maybe let's all agree that "passenger airline pilot" isn't the job for him.

So you're agreeing its fine that he's a member of the Wikipedia board because he wouldn't be in charge of hiring?

I have mixed feelings. Our society is supposed to believe that people can improve themselves and we should (eventually) forgive people. More importantly the people responsible for this are really Steve Jobs and Eric Schmidt, how many of these wikipedia voters are running macs and iphones?

We're all taught trig in school, but most people will never need to apply it. The intent of learn to code isn't to train programmers, rather to provide people with a understanding of how things work. In truth, it probably helps more people than trig as the knowledge would help with spreadsheets.
