Also, I accept absolutely no "responsibility for making changes where I live so that everybody who wants to be here, can". You have no claim on any "right" of being here. If you wish to be here, or any place else for that matter, you'll need to do so on your own accord and not encumber somebody else to make it possible for you to be here. IOW you either can do it or get the fuck out!
When you decide to settle down into an area and then proceed to sink all of your wealth into your dwelling you do so at a risk - a risk that development of your area will go well and people will want to live there. That ups how valuable your property may become. But it's a two way street - you're property can go up and it can go down. To call on others to sacrifice because your guestimation and risk didn't work out is nothing short of whining!
The article's speculation about why tech is moving to SF is faulty too. If it's true that "low distribution costs by using iOS's app store and Facebook" and it's easier for lots of small companies to find real estate then why bitch and moan about the price of real estate in the city. Just move your operations to Bakersfield or any other "cheaper to live in" place.
