It’s not in full decline, but Silicon Valley is on its heels these days, whether due to the practices at Uber or Facebook or Google or …well, the companies that belong there as a whole. Here’s three pieces that all touch on the some of the problems there, but really I could have put three dozen recent articles instead of just these three:
- There’s Blood In The Water In Silicon Valley
- Privilege and inequality in Silicon Valley – Tech Diversity Files – Medium
- Silicon Valley is confusing pseudo-science with innovation – The Verge
Everything I see tells me that they are not equipped to deal with the challenges on their own. If this is true, then expect these high tech companies to come in for a political bruising soon.
