Each Saturday, Farhad Manjoo and Mike Isaac, technology reporters at The New York Times, review the week’s news, offering analysis and maybe a joke or two about the most important developments in the tech industry.

Farhad: Hello, Michael. It’s snowing in New York and it’s raining in San Francisco. And in Washington, the president is exploring the White House in his bathrobe. That’s a reference to an article from five ancient news cycles ago, but it was the highlight of my week. If I were president, I too would wander around in my old robe. That’s my house, you know what I mean? I want to be comfortable.

Mike: The only time I ever wear bathrobes is when I stay in hotels on work trips. I feel like a king of a very small house in a foreign land, and I like to do extravagant things like order room service and watch pay-per-view movies.

In completely unrelated news, I’ve been having some trouble with my expense reports.

Farhad: O.K., so pretty much the only tech news this week was Trump news. Even earnings reports were just more Trump news. For instance, Twitter. Its earnings were embarrassing and its stock plunged. That was a cue for a lot of people online to joke about how Trump hasn’t even managed to make Twitter great again.

Mike: Yeah, I was on their earnings call with investors, and all the Wall Street analysts were incredulous that Twitter didn’t get a “Trump bump” from all of his nutty tweets. I was sort of shocked too, but again, it’s not like we can’t find his latest tweet plastered across CNN, or The New York Times, or any other news outlet.

Farhad: I think Trump and other newsmakers’ use of Twitter might be starting to hurt Twitter’s brand. After all, if you’re a would-be Twitter user who sees this stream of CRAZY PRESIDENTIAL TWEETS!! on TV every night, wouldn’t you think of Twitter as just a really unpleasant place to visit?

Mike: Well, you and I are also fixtures on Twitter, so maybe it’s a wash? Or maybe that’s wishful thinking.

Farhad: Also, Expedia had a noteworthy earnings call. In his closing remarks, the chief executive, Dara Khosrowshahi, thanked his employees for their work in 2016, then added, “Hopefully we will all be alive to see the end of next year.” Expedia: Safe Travels, Unless There’s a Nuclear War. He’s a member of The New York Times Company’s board of directors, by the way. I think I’m obliged to mention that.

Mike: O.K., that’s kind of funny. And really, a lot of people have been ending their conversations with me like that. It’s an odd way of acknowledging that the world is totally upside down from where it was one month ago.

Take “Saturday Night Live.” It’s basically a political sketch comedy show now. It’s always about Trump, or in last week’s case, Sean Spicer and his lectern assaults on the press. Everything is political now — 10 times more so than ever before.

Farhad: Yeah. The big story in tech was the same big story as everywhere else: Trump’s travel ban and the response to it. Early in the week, about 130 technology companies signed on to a legal brief in support of the court fight against the executive order. The list included most of the household names in tech, including several of the biggest companies.

Mike: And Chobani! The wokest yogurt brand, period.

Farhad: As our colleague David Streitfeld reported, a lot of the push for the companies to take a strong stand against the president came from employees. There are lots of immigrants here, and as I argued this week, the whole place really wouldn’t work without immigration.

What’s striking to me, though, is just how energized everyone here seems to be. I don’t know about you, but every conversation I had with people in tech this week started with some recap of the news and how people were responding to it. This is not normal in the tech industry! I just don’t know people here to voluntarily bring up politics, and to even express their political views, just voluntarily. It’s not really how tech people roll. But this week, everyone was just so … woke.

I really think Trump has changed something in the culture here. It could fizzle. But for now, something’s different. Don’t you think?

Mike: I do! Part of it is just that you really, really cannot escape political news right now. Trump has signed so many executive orders since coming into office, it’s difficult to keep up with them all.

But more than that, I think about how folks in tech have positioned themselves over the past 10 years or so. Joining a technology company isn’t something you do these days to build a better microwave. At Facebook, you’re trying to connect the entire world. At Twitter, it’s about giving a voice to everyone. At Apple, it’s … about making a lot of money on phones.

You’re buying into the mission, and where you work in Silicon Valley says a lot about you and your values. That, and the amount of lucrative stock options you may be sitting on.

So when someone like Trump comes in and stomps all over a great deal of those values — openness, inclusion, connectivity — I would be shocked if there wasn’t an outpouring of emotion or pushback from the rank and file.

Chief executives, on the other hand, had to deal with things at a trickier level. If they are comfortable speaking out about the mission of their companies when things are easy but clam up when things go sideways, well, that’s just sad. (Sad!) And I think a lot of employees realized this and pushed back internally on their bosses, which ultimately forced a lot of the execs to act.

And it’s kind of hard to argue that sticking by your values isn’t a good thing. So I guess what I’m saying is: Stay woke.

Until next week?

Farhad: See ya!
