The Way Forward for FWD.us
Silicon Valley venture capitalist Vinod Khosla expressed his concerns about the lobbying tactics employed by the new advocacy organization FWD.us in a tweet, asking if the organization would “prostitute … values” to achieve its goals:
Khosla isn’t alone when it comes to expressing disapproval with the organization started by Facebook co-founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Many others in the technology world expressed their outrage towards the advocacy group on Twitter, in public forums and advertisements. A number of liberal organizations have called for a boycott of the group, and one of the most prominent FWD.us members, Tesla and PayPal co-founder Elon Musk, has withdrawn his support for the organization.
