Creative young Brits are quitting London for affordable Berlin | World news | The Guardian
More and more burnt-out Londoners are embracing the laid-back cool – and much lower cost of living – of the German capital [...] Her decision to leave London was mainly a financial one. “I was working seven days a week and paying £800 for a shared flat in Lewisham. We kept moving further and further into south-east London, until I felt I needed to leave entirely. I’m part of a big exodus; I know many people who have moved from east London to south-east London and then to Berlin. [...] Agora is one of many “co-working hubs” that have sprung up in the city, created for the ever-growing startup community (by 2020 an estimated 100,000 jobs are set to be generated by Berlin startups). Agora is one of many expat bubbles, catering to the ever-growing number of digital nomads. [...] I was just exhausted all the time. You go home to your expensive flat, but end up just sleeping in it, and then go back to work. There’s just more time here.” [...] In London, its office work, bars, sleep, repeat.

Foreign Founders Should Look Beyond Silicon Valley | TechCrunch
Put your start-up tent up at expensive places = less runway for your start-up = competitive disadvantage (burn rate). To get a MVP minimally viable product out the door, you don't need a $120k/y full-stack dev, for 90% of "ideas," Start-ups fail because they run out of time (= money to pay bills) to find traction, the formula for their "idea." Sure, there are bad ideas. But sometimes you need time to fix all the problems and test and optimise etc etc. A marathon of sprints. // "Burning Money For The Roof Above Your Head" &! So Silicon Valley is an extraordinarily competitive and expensive place to hire; the risks are high for you as a founder – and yet you have to hire faster than you ever have. Candidates are gone if you don’t catch them in a day. &! RE TECHCITY UK - RETS ARE ALREADY WAY UP IN THE AREA AND LONDON IS EXPENSIVE. AS IS NY.

SherpaVentures raises $154M maiden fund to offer a fresh take to value-added venture | PandoDaily
[ #building blocks, pillars - created out of necessity. ] But despite their influence, there’s limits to the bandwidth that Pishevar and Stanford have to serve their portfolio companies. With this in mind, the pair founded SherpaFoundry as a standalone consultancy alongside SherpaVentures. The advisory and incubation arm is led by a former Johnson & Johnson Tina Sharkey as its CEO. Unlike the portfolio services groups within other top VC firms, the idea at SherpaFoundry isn’t to help startups with marketing, PR, recruiting, or accounting, all services which Stanford points out are readily available in the broader Silicon Valley ecosystem. Rather, this concierge-like group exists entirely to add more abstract but higher impact value through strategy consulting, business development, and out-of-the-box recruiting. SherpaFoundry is separately capitalized will be compensated for its work through a mix of equity and cash. The group may even work with non-SherpaVentures companies.

“Silicon Alley” is done, but New York is rising | PandoDaily
I’ve spent years traveling to startup hubs — both aspirational and actual ones — in most states in the US and at least 15 countries around the world. I’ve found an inverse relationship with a place having a Silicon-themed nickname and actually thriving as a startup ecosystem. In the rare cases where a place that calls itself “Silicon whatever” does tend to produce great startups at a regular pace, something interesting happens. It tends to stop calling itself by that name.

Dürre im Westen der USA: Stausee Lake Powell trocknet aus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Die aktuelle Dürre sei "beispiellos seit dem Beginn der verlässlichen Aufzeichnungen im Jahr 1895", heißt es im National Climate Assessment, dem offiziellen Klimabericht der US-Regierung, den Präsident Barack Obama Anfang Mai vorstellte. Er verheißt dem Südwesten Ungemach: Das Wasser schwinde weiter, es fehle in Städten, Agrarlandschaften, Ökosystemen, Waldbrände häuften sich. Und das könnte erst der Anfang sein: Wissenschaftler befürchten, dass die Region in frühere Zeiten zurückfallen könnte. Baumring-Analysen haben ergeben, dass das 20. Jahrhundert die niederschlagreichste Periode der vergangenen 1200 Jahre war. Zuvor war es im Westen der USA deutlich trockener als heute. Eine Studie etwa hat gezeigt, dass zwischen den Jahren 850 und 1300 gleich zwei Megadürren herrschten - jede für sich fast 200 Jahre lang. Die größte Befürchtung der Experten ist, das Klima könne nun wieder zu derartigen Verhältnissen zurückkehren.

Report: San Francisco has worse income inequality than Rwanda | PandoDaily
It’s not difficult to see evidence of income disparity in San Francisco. The headquarters of Twitter, now valued at around $20 billion, looms massively over a neighborhood plagued by homelessness, drug addiction, and prostitution. Median rents continue to hit record highs, and despite the wealth that continues to pour into San Francisco thanks to the tech boom, the number of homeless individuals has remained more-or-less the same since 2005. The gap between rich and poor is widening across the country, but according to a new study, San Francisco income inequality was found to be not only above the US national average – it was even slightly worse than that of Rwanda, which is among the most unequal countries in the world. +++ See http://modelviewculture.com/pieces/not-a-tech-bro-but-not-a-tech-lady "Gender (+ Race) + Class" paragraph.
