Today is a great day for human rights.
The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that the Constitution guarantees a right to same-sex marriage. This decision reflects a shift in American public opinion: according to recent polls, 60% of Americans now support same-sex marriage.
As a company devoted to promoting openness and collaboration, Authorea feels strongly this is an important step in the right direction.
Obviously, sharing the ups and downs of life with another person is an immensely more important and complex task than writing a collaborative paper. Yet if we can draw a parallel, we might say that a useful measure of the progress of a society, and humankind in general, is its ability to share and care openly, together.
That’s the way to unlock society’s true potential, and foster creativity and love.
