Re: Massachusetts "A saner lot"...

Governor Moonbeam and the PC police will be along, shortly.

Don't forget, the original Silicon Valley was started by folks such as Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, neither of whom were sociopathic or megalomaniacal. There is quite a long list of folks in the early days who were very socially conscious, technically brilliant, and, for the most part, self-effacing, or at least humble.

The change in the valley happened when the "suits" from the East Coast flew in and started bureaucratizing everything. I lived through that, and it was long before Carly's time, though she exacerbated it.

Read "Soul of a New Machine" (and "House") by Stacy Kidder to get a taste of the good old days (and of excellent writing).
