A Real San Francisco Tech Dude

In many ways, I feel at home in San Francisco, but I still sometimes feel alienated among my friends and peers. Here are the ways in which I’m not A Real San Francisco Tech Dude:

  • I am not skinny
  • I can’t grow a beard
  • I ride a bike with gears
  • I ride Uber only if absolutely necessary
  • I have more than 50 co-workers
  • I am comfortable working with more than 50 co-workers
  • I have worked at a job before my current one
  • I have worked at a job that doesn’t offer free lunch
  • I don’t have my Caps Lock key remapped to Control
  • I don’t live in Mission Dolores, Duboce Triangle, Lower Haight, or Hayes Valley
  • I don’t commute on the J-Church line
  • I don’t find @KarlTheFog funny
  • I don’t like the sandwiches at Ike’s Place
  • I don’t care about brunch
  • I don’t play video games

Maybe this just means I’m old.
