I feel like a lot of the Valley is habitually talking to itself about things that aren’t that interesting anymore.
Goodbye, Bay Area. Hello, New York!

Exactly! This piece wonderfully summarizes state of SF — and hits exactly how I have been feeling and why I too have my sights back on moving back to my hometown of NYC. When. I first moved to SF — 14!years ago it was an exciting time with lots of innovation and yet even then I felt that the “one industry town” culture led to myopic view of the world. innovation thrives on diversity and cross pollination of ideas and SF has lost that.

Congrats John — see ya on the flip side!!
