There's a whole bunch of reshares of this TechCrunch article in my stream today. A lot of background and history. Like a lot. However, there's a somewhat implicit sentiment running throughout this wall of text that if people were just a bit more reasonable, thinking beyond their own interests, it would be this utopia. Or maybe not implicit. Because right at the beginning the author says this:
But everyone who lives in the Bay Area today needs to accept responsibility for making changes where they live so that everyone who wants to be here, can.
This is very nice goal - to create an environment that is affordable to everyone who wants to be there, no matter what they expect to have and how much they can expect / afford to spend to actually get what they expect. How realistic is that though?
