    Ha. All of my recruiting profiles have a line that explicitly says "Working in Silicon Valley is a dealbreaker.", right next to the line that says I don't want to work in PHP. Don't mistake that for the inability to do either.


    If you can't get into the top companies there (whether established ones or startups) I guess I can see how that'd be a dealbreaker.

    I get asked to come interview all the time. I just like a little more variety in my life. I can see why some people like it, but honestly there's nothing out there for me that I can't get in other great locales.

    yea if I remember xclite's employer correctly, I'd say that jab is just laughable. Hell, I personally wouldn't work there even if it doubled my salary. Relocation is a major undertaking and I'd only do it for like 3, maybe 4 places. But I'll be generous and say they're very broad regions - Pacific Northwest, New England, and Scandinavia. Palo Alto is none of those.

    Though amusingly (because it was mentioned), for the right price I might relocate to Detroit. But that's because I grew up there, it'll always have a little spot in my heart.

    Some of us have other priorities in life than flushing it away working day in and day out. I don't define my life by my job - I use my job to supplement my life. That means I'll work where I want to live, not live where I want to work. Sure I'd like to make the money I probably could out there, but I'd hate living in California.

    There actually is some effort to turn Detroit into a revitalized tech hub. Quite a few startups with offices there. I dunno if that's for me, though.

    why does anyone locate in Shallow Alto any more? It's a pit, nobody interesting can afford to live there anymore, your engineers are going to have to commute from frickin' Sacramento or some shit like that, and if you're a startup, you're just advertising that you're too stupid and incompetent with money for anyone to even look at you. What idiot would locate in Palo Alto today?


    Lots of talent down there. Don't be jelly you can't get hired there :P/>.

  3. In Topic: When I close my eyes...

    Posted 30 Jul 2015

    I was tempted to close this as having no conversation value, but I'll defer to the mods of the Caffeine Lounge on that. What sort of discussion are you even going for here?
  4. In Topic: What are you reading and what is on your book stack to read?

    Posted 29 Jul 2015

    I'm reading Odalisque, the third "book" of QuickSilver, the first book of Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle. Then I'll finally be able to skip over "The Confusion", which I've already read, and finish up with "The System of the World".
  5. In Topic: Processor replacing

    I now feel like I need a shower.

    At some point, sure. At this point, I don't have enough time to do much of anything except for Clojure.
