To all the tech bros coming up from below. To the Internet seekers who can tell me every single thing they’re going to invent in the digital world that already exists in the real. To the hipster art school kids who can mold entire universes inside of 3D studio modeling programs. To better looking over worked people with trendier ideas and more talent and more influence and the ability to work 80+ hours a week. And yes, some are really, really nice and some are complete fucking assholes. I’ve heard they sold their typography books and bought coding manuals. I’ve heard they sold their coding manuals and bought music festival lineups. I’ve heard the only way to hire them is to pay Facebook salaries, offer them on-site yoga, and shuttle them to the office via private bus. Throw in the ping pong and the organic food and organic cotton for good measure because it will be one of them who comes up with the idea to pay a beautiful person on Instagram $250,000 for a single post. Gil Scott-Heron!
Yes, I’m definitely losing my edge.
