It seems that everyone in Silicon Valley and San Francisco wants to leave a dent in the world. Well, I can think of lots of people who’ve left terrible, horrible dents, even tears, in the world; just as many, more even, than you can name who’ve improved it.
If leaving a dent means making yourself miserable earning a million dollars, I’ll leave it, and be happily over here sipping a glass of wine.
One last note on this: I’m entirely unsurprised that a description of whimsical software comes from New York, not San Francisco. The other place I’ve seen people talking about whimsy is London, usually from people connected to the BERG/RIG axis.
SF needs to be more whimsical.
