Mandeville, LA – NOT Shocking – The People Behind The Technology Of The Judgement Pornosphere™ Are Miserable – The Guardian reveals the miserable, personal lives of some of the engineers and code warriors behind Twitter, Facebook et al. Note that misery comes in the form of “scraping by” on a mere six figure income and other such first world problems. Also note, just as I have been telling you for years, there is a baked in animosity towards family life in Silicon Valley. The star of the story is a Twitter employee: “The biggest cost is his $3,000 rent – which he said was “ultra cheap” for the area – for a two-bedroom house in San Francisco, where he lives with his wife and two kids. He’d like a slightly bigger property, but finds himself competing with groups of twentysomethings happy to share accommodation while paying up to $2,000 for a single room. “Families are priced out of the market,” he said, adding that family-friendly cafes and restaurants have slowly been replaced by “hip coffee shops”.” The story also details the 3 hour long commutes of “secretaries” among other prices to be paid for slinging pixels and bits around to make possible Pridebook™ and company.
