Should you be required to serve same-sex couples? Most state public accommodation laws require businesses to serve everyone.

    Commonwealth Club A #Nofilter Conversation with the Founders of Instagram From the devastating aftermath of Hurricane Sandy to your Sunday Eggs Benedict in the Mission, Instagram is documenting the world around us.

And their eye-catching communications platform has not left the limelight. Despite media feeding frenzies over Instagram's $1 billion dollar acquisition by Facebook and a controversial policy-change announcement in December 2012, heightened scrutiny doesn't seem to be keeping users at bay. Mike Krieger and Kevin Systrom appeared in conversation with Kevin Rose, partner at Google Ventures.
