It seems to me that a lot of the aggro tech bros you describe are constantly drinking to suppress the crushing meaninglessness of what they do for a living. When your whole day-to-day existence is built around making some trivial app that exploits some legal loophole to make money in some skeezy new way, doesn’t really benefit anyone, and will be forgotten in 6 months…the existential angst comes hard. Booze helps with that — even better if it’s expensive booze so you can feel superior to other people!
