      This a cringe worthy article. Points for honesty, but as someone who busted his butt in many failing startups (and most do fail), it seems like her success is nothing more than a privileged lottery. And so be it. Life is not fair. $6 million is a lot of money, but she will find herself in the “new rich” circle as the “rich poor”. If you don’t have a net worth of $10 M then you are not “comfortably” rich. I certainly do hope she finds a competent money manager.

      Lying to the public makes room for the current environment of factless conspiracy theories. Facts matter and need to be regarded as truth. Experts should never lie to the public, less they make facts arguable

      Excellent write up. Very clear to understand, and us coders appreciate the code samples. I really enjoyed the visual tool. I am curious if this could be a feature? For instance, if I could tweak it to my actual reading speed, and then set it to push me just beyond that average, then it may be an effective means to help improve my reading speed. I’d expect the UX to be toned down so it wouldn’t distract from the reading experience. It’s also reassuring to see that what I am reading it being recorded.

      While I agree with much of what is expressed in this article, it also seems a bit self aggrandizing in tone. Similar to what I experienced living in SV, frankly. It seems that to be legit, someone else must not be. Everyone needs a villan, and in this case, it's the system.
      Apart from that, it's a worthy read to get to the end where the author speaks of many great people, and yes, innovators, in SV. While I don't agree with all points (Amazon is not innovative? Explain that to me), I do recognize that SV was overtaken by greed, and that innovation has suffered in light of this. Perhaps that was inevitable. What made SV great was that everyone with an idea and an ambition wanted to be there (nevermind it was in large part because the funding was there). Community is necessary to spark innovation, and SV is at its best when it is fostering that, as with the examples at the end of the article.

      This article makes me curious to learn more about how a feminist approach to recovery is implemented.
