There goes the neighborhood

The last time I was in Austin I saw that it was no longer a desirable place to live.

SXSW turned it into a pretentious douchery in the last decade and tech jobs are driving the cost of living up for everyone.

I'm happy for their growth, but it's off my list of cool small cities. And "a better Silicon Valley?" Big warning right there.
