1. Most tech mecas are in blue states

Most technical Jobs are in California, New York, Washington, Chicago, D.C, and Pennsylvania. Exceptions are Texas and Georgia. Source

Makes sense that people who think for a living would make the correct choices in politics as well.

2. Her and Carli Fiorini.

Fiorini fucked over what used to be one of the most employee friendly corporations so badly she was bounced from the board.
