Readers weigh in on Karl Rove and tech debate

The White House political spinmaster says high tech's spread will ultimately put more votes on the Republican side of the political ledger.

Good feedback (public AND private) on today's column today. But invariably, people are going to interpret things through their own particular political prism. So it is that some folks diss me as a lunatic San Francisco liberal while others accuse me of shilling for the Great Right Wing Conspiracy. Whatever, folks.

The bigger question is whether Internet-based entrepreneurship necessarily translates into closer identification with one political party over the other. Rove's recent comments published in The New Yorker suggest he believes it's a no-brainer. Maybe he'll ultimately be proved right. But I still don't see the evidence. What do you all think?
