This Is Your Life in Silicon Valley
Sunil Rajaraman

Great piece — I am definitely guilty of so much of this article every day. Although it paints a dystopia of how meaningless and shallow life might be in Silicon Valley, I’m not sure if the thoughts I would have throughout the day in any other city would be any more meaningful. If I didn’t work in tech, or if I spent more time daydreaming about other things rather than starting my own company, if I spent time worrying about making ends meet or started my morning out watching the news or reading a physical paper that my life would be more worthy of living and less shallow. In the end, what is the life you actually want to live — what is paradise?
