I grew up in the Bay Area and tech lifted me up from working class roots.

Starting a tech company and selling it also let me stay and buy a house.

NIMBYs talk about outsiders from elsewhere are ruining things but I literally had to get into tech in order to stay.

So how about we build more, make space for prosperity, and save the golden goose?

All my high school friends who didn’t go into tech had to move. Nurses, teachers, firefighters

It’s generational warfare basically. If you are young, NIMBYs think you shouldn’t be here

And if you can buy because you saw the score and played the game well, you’re the problem 🤔
