San Francisco (and the Bay Area) is where the future is being created. Look at the apps on your phone – Uber, Facebook, Google, Yelp, Pandora, LinkedIn, Airbnb, Twitter, and many more – all are located in the Bay Area. People here believe that the world is open for technological disruption and that they have the power to do so. This attitude of innovation and impermanence radiates through to every aspect of life. People are constantly experimenting with their identities, relationships and careers - purposefully building better systems. I live in Sydney now, but I left my (opened) heart in San Francisco.
