Shit Silicon Valley Says

After a wave of “Shit $SOME_SUBCULTURE Says” videos comes one whose lines you might find hauntingly familiar if you work in tech: Shit Silicon Valley Says.

Created by husband-and-wife team Tom Conrad and Kate Imbach, it’s bang-on – I’m guilty of having uttered most of the statements made in the video, including:

  • “I reblogged it and retweeted it.”
  • “I met so-and-so at $SOME_CONFERENCE …or was it Burning Man?”
  • “I miss seasons”, which I said during my stint in San Francisco, back in the days of “The Bubble”, and finally,
  • “How is this different from Facebook?” which I asked the CEO of the worst-run startup I ever worked at.

Watch, enjoy, and cringe slightly if you need to.
