Mike Judge is getting it right

As a 30 year vet of the valley I have to say Mike Judge’s HBO series Silicon Valley is getting it right on a lot of different fronts. He’s capturing the mania that is the valley these days.The preciousness, the arrogance, the “change the world via apps” mentality etc…

Mike is also capturing the lack of diversity (read no blacks , latinos, or women of note) in the valley. I am not being critical of Mike per se, though i wonder if his accuracy is intentional or by accident. In either case, seeing this lack of diversity by way of this show is really stunning. It’s something we should all consider as the valley culture continues to develop
