1/ VERY interesting tidbit from an ex CEO of major tech co.

Tech giants are opening offices in new cities as much to RETAIN valley talent as RECRUIT new. New office opens and the ratio of valley employees asking to move to actual job openings is 11:1

2/ Along with techlash + echo cahmbers that rightly rail against 'change the world' ad-click-bait "engineers" contradictorily + competitively ice-plunging & meditating to find 'peace'...

3/ Along with failure to anticipate impact of "changing the world" + moving fast + breaking things, without considering the "thing" is in part fabric of society + civil discourse which was shrewdly observed + exploited by foreign agents.

4/ Would not be surprised to see a major tech co follow Thiel not to LA but to Boulder, CO or other non-valley city and re-establish it's HQ outside CA.... Very interesting implications.

5/ Amazon HQ2 will also create a big ripple effect + aftershock of talent migrating to that city. And other tech co's will Amazon analyzed...and establish new outposts as much to attract NEW talent as to let OLD talent pioneer into new city.
