SF is the perfect place to live to be pampered and have your every need catered to. The creators of a city determine its culture - and our creators are solidly upper-middle class entrepreneurs. What types of startups are coming out of SF? Those that pander to our unrealistic lifestyles.
I want some Bi-Rite, I can commission a courier from Get it Now, Zaarly, TaskRabbit, Exec… where else in the world would this type of business model actually take off?
I have enough friends and need for friends that I can choose to use Facebook, or if I want more control, Path, Pair…
I guess this is my official declaration of disillusionment with this scene.
Build something useful. Build something for the rest of the world.
I have written a great deal about my disillusionment with the SF monoculture of self-obsessed wannaprenuerials. None of the this surprises, and I only wonder how long before Catherine leaves SF.
