Not the Silicon Valley I Remember

02/18 Vanity Fair:
Some of the most powerful men in Silicon Valley are regulars at exclusive, drug-fueled, sex-laced parties—gatherings they describe not as scandalous, or even secret, but as a bold, unconventional lifestyle choice. Yet, while the guys get laid, the women get screwed. In an adaptation from her new book, Brotopia, Emily Chang exposes the tired and toxic dynamic at play.
It';s a feminist criticism, does not surprise me; power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely.  When I worked there, the hope was to become rich enough to comfortably retire, you know: millionaire, maybe multimillionaire.  Now it's billionaire target.  What cam you use that much money for?  Buying the political class.
