San Francisco is in the middle of a class war. It's not the first or last city to have heart-wrenching inequality tear at its fabric, challenge its values, test its support structures. But what's jaw-dropping to me is how openly, defensively, and critically technology folks demean those who are struggling.
The nation has entered a twilight zone where 'elite' and 'elitism' only have subjective meaning. It's an alternate universe in which Mitt Romney can admit he's "not concerned about the very poor" and his wife can claim she doesn't consider herself "wealthy." All this during a time of record unemployment.
