"Who Will Mourn the Tech Bro?
The subculture you love to hate is tough to define. It will be even tougher when it’s gone."
"I asked Ingram to define “tech bro” for me. She offered: men working in tech who have 'a disregard for other people because they believe that everyone in the world is treated equally.'
This made more sense than anything I’d heard. It’s a definition that addresses the industry’s theoretical status as equalizer, its proponents’ view of themselves as forces for democratization. They write the code that permits tiny businesses to process credit cards, or allows almost anyone, regardless of background or monetary worth, to maintain their own website. The god in the machine as deliverer of equality through binary code. The ones and zeros see us as all the same."
