In Walt’s column this week, he explains how immigration has influenced and built the tech industry we see today, in response to President Trump’s executive order restricting immigration from seven Muslim-majority countries. On the following episode of Ctrl-Walt-Delete, Walt and Nilay expound further on the tech world’s dependance on immigration.
In the second half of the show, Walt responds to Nilay’s wife Becky’s review of a Samsung curved screen TV, which has been called “the best tech review ever.”
