However, I do notice that most American tech geeks are not at all concerned/spooked about those rising number of layoffs. I dare say that they are more concerned with Proposition 8 that will eliminate the right of same-sex couples to marry in California if it is passed!
If you have time to spare, take a look and compare the number of comments left behind by readers of TechCrunch. I already did a quick comparison and found that there were no more than 150 to 200 comments in each of TechCrunch’s past layoff-announcement posts but check this out. As of time of writing, there are 410 comments in TechCrunch’s ‘anti-Proposition 8’ post and it was only posted last Thursday!
I have heard of stories saying that tech geeks are mostly gays but this is pretty ridiculous!
