Submission + - Silicon Valley's Loony Cheerleading Culture Is Out of Control (slashdot.org) 1

Nerval's Lobster writes: Kernel editor-in-chief and noted firebrand Milo Yiannopoulos swings away at Silicon Valley's current startup culture, noting that it's resulted in herds of wannabe founders and startup groupies who don't exactly have a track record of starting successful companies or even producing solid code. "Though they produce little of value, they are the naive soft power behind aggressive capitalist machines in Silicon Valley: the trend-setting vanguard of the global Web and mobile industries," he writes. "We should be very wary indeed of these vacuous cheerleaders whose vague waffle about the transformational potential of photo-sharing apps is more sinister and Orwellian than anything dreamt up by a dictator." How long can such a culture continue before it dries up, and the whole tech-investment cycle begins anew?
