I am avoiding the topic of presidential politics but I thought this article in the Seattle Times was informative in regard to who high powered tech workers donted money to in the presidential election.
Google employees were more likely to donate to Barack Obama. Microsoft employees were more likely to give to Hillary Clinton. This makes alot of sense to me. If my feelings on Google were more widely known, it may make sense to others why this makes so much sense to me.
By the way, Bill and most of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation types gave to Hillary Clinton. Bill Gates Senior did not, though; he gave to Obama. However, Bill Gates mother gave to Hillary Clinton.
On the subject of the money trail – here is one other article that should be of interest – about donations to the political campaigns of superdelegates. Obama has given almost $700,000 of his campaign money to the political campaigns of superdelegates. Here is an interesting statistic from the article “Of the 82 elected officials who had announced as of Feb. 12 that their superdelegate votes would go to the Illinois senator, 35, or 43 percent of this group, have received campaign contributions from him in the 2006 or 2008 election cycles, totaling $232,200. “
I will refrain from editorializing on this, rather just say, hmmm, very interesting.
