Let's talk about....
The Darkside of the Valley
Books, movies, and media outlets romanticise life at Silicon Valley. Technology is an industry with abundance, opportunity, and infinite greener grass, and I’m part of it. Why am I depressed, then? Why do I have anxiety? Why does my manager mistreat me? Why is no one answering my job applications? This talk presents the road less exposed, the story less told about the tech industry, a part of the industry even Elon Musk dares not to mention because, as he puts it, “no one wants to hear it”.
