Silicon Valley is Dead

Being an L.A. native who lived in the Bay Area during it’s transformation into Silicon Valley, I greatly fear the larger social displacement that will occur should my city become the next SV (already happening with Silicon Beach). We used to be an affordable, diverse city (like the peninsula) but the effect of the ‘founders’ and ‘givers’ coming into their own is the hollowing out of the lower socioeconomic strata. Where are the San Bruno, South San Francisco, Half Moon Bay and Fillmore today? The industry ultimately is a taker for those who no longer can afford to live in their city.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
