Greg, I don’t think I even hinted at the idea that tech has been bad for San Francisco. I am an investor and an indie publisher, and in both arenas, tech has made my career. I love tech. I love San Francisco. But I think those who have benefited from the good times (and I have, at a level far more than I deserve) should share the wealth with those who have not. And that includes many groups — artists getting squeezed out by high rents, first responders and teachers who can’t afford to live in the communities they serve, and disadvantaged kids like the ones 826 serves.
I really don’t think my post sells any myth at all.
My point is that tech has generally been great but we can do better.
