very heavy on drugs and women and usually end in group "cuddle puddles,"

So a rave, basically?

They report on this as if it were some isolated event occuring only in the sv.  And "techbros?" Really?  What a small world they live in.

Salmon: This happens in most industries


And it's certainly not new.
That's why some of the comments by some of the male participants were particularly eyeball-worthy:

"What's making this possible is the same progressiveness and open-mindedness that allows us to be creative and disruptive about ideas," Founder X told me.

And:
"This is a strange place that has created incredible things in the world and therefore attracts these types of people and enables these types of people. How could it be anything but weird and dramatic and people on the edge testing everything?" On the one hand, he said, "if you thought like everyone else, you can't invent the future," yet he also warned that, sometimes, this is a "recipe for disaster."

It's just misguided arrogance. Arrogance of thinking what they are doing is somehow new and world-changing.

I couldn't make it far beyond the perpetual victim-hood in the first paragraph. As if the women at these parties have zero agency in their own presence and participation.

I really can't feel sorry for the women described in the article.  Stories about the high school football team should have had them prepped for this kind of thing long ago.

I also find it highly suspect that someone from California doesn't at least know what molly is.

Rich guys invite their female colleagues as attendees and end up treating them as hookers.

Emily, you had me for a paragraph or two, with the breathy, bouncy sex-laced party descriptions, then my mind wandered, I remembered that episode of Silicon Valley with Lily, and my mind pivoted away from your reportage of hairy-cracked bro culture and off to the realm of fictional wireless bliss...

I want to be shocked, but look at all the money that gets spent on Girls Who Code and similar events to get young women into these companies.

The principle of raising small amounts of finite capital by simply hooking the logic circuits of a Bambleweeny 57 Sub-Meson Brain to an atomic vector plotter suspended in a strong Brownian Motion producer (say a nice fistful of MDMA branded with the startup's logo) were of course well understood - and such generators were often used to break the ice at parties by making all the molecules in the hostess's undergarments leap simultaneously one foot to the left, in accordance with the theory of indeterminacy.

Many respectable engineers said that they weren't going to stand for this, partly because it was a debasement of science, but mostly because they didn't get invited to those sorts of parties.

img.fark.netView Full Size


Another thing they couldn't stand was the perpetual failure they encountered while trying to construct a machine which could generate the infinite capital field needed to flip a startup across the mind-paralyzing distances between a Series A and an the exit round, and at the end of the day they grumpily announced that such a startup was virtually impossible.

Then, one day, a founder who had been left to sweep up after a particularly unsuccessful party found himself reasoning in this way: If, he thought to himself, such a startup is a virtual impossibility, it must be made of a finite amount of bullshiat. So all I have to do in order to make one is to work out exactly how much bullshiat is required, feed that figure into a finite bullshiat generator, give it a fresh fistful of really pure ecstasy... and turn it on!

He did this and was rather startled when he managed to create the long sought after golden Infinite Capital generator. He was even more startled when just after he sold the company to the Uber Exit Round for Extreme Douchebaggery Fund, he was lynched by a rampaging mob of respectable engineers who had realized that one thing they couldn't stand was a smart-arse.

Sounds like a mensa sig ostensibly dedicated to sexual exploration, but ultimately a venue where entrenched members use their status to pray upon junior members' desire for acceptance.

This shiat had been going on forever.  There's nothing avant garde about it.  And last time I checked it became painfully obvious that tech stopped improving our lives once Cletus of Duluth for himself a Facebook page.

Facebook could have been a wonderful place.  But they catered to racists and wingnuts to build an advertising base.  Nowadays, if you use Facebook, you literally are an asswipe that takes more from society than you could ever possibly pay back.

But I'm running off track.  Now we know what Tai Lopez has to do to get laid.

They need to name names. That's what made the Weinstein thing blow up (and that's probably some phrasing I should work on)

And the asshats want to use the excuse that they get to behave this way now because they didn't get any in high school? Shiat, that's half the guys on Fark and you don't see us having...these kind of...parties where...unless I'm one of the ones who didn't get invited.

Naw...

I miss out on all the good stuff. I was too young to be in on the New York debauchery in the 70's, stuck in Detroit in the 80's, and too married and too old to hang out at Silicon Valley parties. At least there is free porn on the interwebs these days.

No.  I don't.  Then again, it is hard to get the invites when you live under a tarp out in the bush.
