Why thank you! RT @tartantroozers "How We Got To Now" deserves to be huge. Already thinking about the adjacent possibles
I wrote abt the mistake of seeing SV as libertarian paradise in this critique of George Packer's NYer piece: medium.com/the-peer-socie…
What @nathanheller is arguing, correctly, is that Bay Area tension is a battle between two different strains of liberal thought.
Thing that makes Silicon Valley and SF so interesting complex is precisely the fact that it's one of the most progressive places in the US.
The key to that @nathanheller NYer piece is that he doesn't fall into trap of thinking Bay Area tech scene is some libertarian freakshow.
IMHO, @nathanheller is doing the most nuanced job covering the Bay Area scene for an east coast pub, as in this: newyorker.com/magazine/2014/…

Speaking of the MayDay SuperPac, y'all should read the full document that outlines their 3-year plan. Fascinating: mayday.us/the-plan/
Brilliant "super-PAC to end all PACs" plan from @lessig has just hours left to meet its goal. I donated again. You should too: mayday.us

BTW, very pleased to see more and more folks (incl Brooks) favoring "peer" economy over "sharing." I think "peer" is much more evocative.
