@sonnylebythebay Thanks Sonny! The census seems to be under attack by the Trump Administration and I'm very concerned about it
@sonnylebythebay It's census terminology, and I agree that it is broad. I would certainly never use the term "foreigner" though. All I can say is that the feedback I've gotten has been mostly positive.
@sonnylebythebay And in fact, the numbers show that outside of Silicon Valley and (to a lesser extent) Seattle, the tech world is NOT dominated by foreign-born labor.
@sonnylebythebay Why do you make that assumption about what readers will take away from the column? I certainly don't present the data in that manner.
