Thoughts on Nilay in the vergecast?

I just watched the vergecast live. I don't want to spoil anything regarding any of the content.

I'm still not completely sure of his unrest and sensitivity to the subject and why he shot down Miller so fast and so harshly. I often find Millers offline concepts some of the best, i'd struggle offline.

What are anyone's opinions? I'm pretty unsure at the moment.
