As Joe Biden was sworn in as US president, Big Tech rejoiced.
Major industry figures, including the CEOs of Apple and Google, congratulated the new president, and many welcomed the slew of executive orders Biden started signing Wednesday, which reversed various policies introduced by President Donald Trump.
Tech leaders focused on Biden’s promises to address climate change and immigration, particularly his executive order protecting a category of young immigrants sometimes known as “dreamers” — though some major figures, including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, stayed notably silent.
