My dad’s a biophysicist. My brother is a computer guy. His wife works at Microsoft.
You can’t just watch people type all day, and you can’t really show screenshots of code and make it interesting in any way.
Somebody writing a subroutine is unbelievable boring.

I have a feeling that life as a billionaire in Silicon Valley is very different than the life that you or I would lead. Unless you’re a billionaire; I don’t know your financial situation.
