There was no tech talk in last night’s GOP presidential debate.

I told you it would be a quick rundown.

The San Francisco Chronicle uses a few more words:

The most significant reference to technology or Silicon Valley during Thursday’s televised Republican presidential debate came during a commercial for an upcoming movie about Apple founder Steve Jobs.

In the main debate between the 10 leading candidates in the polls, the word “technology” wasn’t uttered once. Other than Florida Sen. Marco Rubio making a quick mention that he alone understands the “disruptive changes” caused by tech businesses like Amazon, there was scant discussion of the innovation economy.

Not even a word about the evils of encryption, which must have come as a relief to Alice and Bob.
