    Both politics and economics (giants of Silicon Valley) deal with the material survival, prosperity, and well being of people; both deal with first conditions of social life – the relationship between politics and economics is never neutral. So, on one level Google, Yahoo, and Facebook executives are following natural capitalist progression. No surprise there WRM.

    They have, by and large, been Obama supporters. This is not evidence of political savvy.

    This is really disturbing only if, like me, you’re a software guy over 50. We’re all being laid off so that the Übernerds can claim there’s a shortage of technical talent and get Congress to give them more H1B visas so they can hire (what amounts to) indentured servants.
