On one hand, the supermajority of founders are representatives of existing power structures and embrace the system and the goodies it provides them On the other hand, SF/SV rhetoric is all about disruption, being rebels, changing the world It's a jarring contrast.

On one hand, the tech scene discourse is purely group-think, the supermajority of founders unconditionally embrace mainstream culture & ideology, and self-identify with stereotypes On the other hand, SF/SV rhetoric is all about thought leadership, daring to be think differently

Let's clarify this... On one hand, the supermajority of SF/SV founders were born rich, went to an Ivy (nearly a requirement to get funded), are part of the network. On the other hand, SF/SV rhetoric is all about rag-to-riches stories, lionizing founders as self-made heroes

Note that the search space can be dynamic: here you have a 'for' loop controlled by a hyperparameter, inside which you define new hyperparameters. You could push this to any level (e.g. searching over a connectivity graph for a dynamic number of nodes). Even recursion...

Clearly the Bay Area startup scene is where you go when you're a pure product of privilege yet you still want to fancy yourself as self-made and anti-establishment

The question of where we locate our meetings is one that I have been asked most often of late, and one on many people's minds. I wrote this as a short exploration of my thinking; and continue to explore other view on these questions.

Google started in the SF Bay Area, and we know our responsibility to help starts at home: we’re making a $1B investment to enable the development of 20K new homes in the region at all income levels, including affordable housing options in the next 10 years

To me, the Facebook cryptocurrency sounds like an ambitious me-too idea in the same category as the Facebook email service, the Facebook phone, the FB mobile OS (recall FB Home?), the FB voice assistant, or the Facebook deep learning library. No one will remember it in 5 years.

A mother who was told she had five minutes to say goodbye to her son before he would be put up for adoption successfully sued ICE over "intentional emotional distress." The settlement could help thousands of migrant parents sue over child separation.

Can't wait for a cryptocurrency with the ethics of Uber, the censorship resistance of Paypal, and the centralization of Visa, all tied together under the proven privacy of Facebook.
