They're not. At all... Obviously you have yet to see Digg...
As a conservative individual, I am constantly kept aware of the ludicrously left-wing stance the tech world takes on everything..
Yes, I know that's a little weird. But I've generally noticed that most tech writers tend, by my definitions, to be a little right wing. The reason I say 'inherently' is because 'tech' is a business sector, right? So if technology is ultimately about products, marketing, branding, sales etc., is tech always destined to be generally libertarian and conservative?
I think what might have gotten me started thinking was Molly's rant about light bulbs. Although I get the sense that when it comes to 'social issues', Molly's probably a little left-of-centre (by American standards, anyway), it just made me think - is tech dominated by rightist perspectives?
Don't want to start a flame war - I'm not saying it's a bad thing. I'm just curious if an area or field that is underpinned by capitalism can ever be concerned with, say, issues of equity, race, gender etc. i.e. things that tend (right or wrong) be the domain of the left.
Whaddya' all think?
