If Sonnet's entire retirment portfolio was his Roth IRA, I would agree.

However, since Sonnet also particpates in his employer's Thrift Savings Program that is pretty well diversified, Roth diversification might not be all that important (though I wouldn't necessarily want my Roth IRA to be 78% tech). Generally it is better to think of all accounts targeted for the same time horizon (such as for retirement) as part of the same portfolio, so it shouldn't be that much of a concern if one part of the portfolio is undiversified if another part of the portfolio compensates for it. (In my case, my 403(b) doesn't have small cap exposure because my 403(b) provider doesn't provide it, so my Roth IRA is overweighted in both small caps and aggressive, so overall I am not that far out of balance in my retirement portfolio.)

I know I am not a stock picker so I don't consider myself qualified to comment on the specific stock choices.
