Submission + - HBO's "Silicon Valley": The Gayest Straight Show on TV (newyorker.com)

An anonymous reader writes: HBO's show, entering its third season, "asks what happens to a generation of straight dudes who are surrounded only by other straight dudes and try their hardest to produce a brainchild. The result, at least in the early phases of Piped Piper, is a kind of communitarian gay paradise." In the show's Silicon Valley, "straight men mature alongside the startups that they parent together"—from "tech pubescence, that time of life when programmers figure out how to wield their power or prowess," to the marriage between money and talent. But in the end, products are "gutted in the name of future revenue," and the "little gay commune unravels."
