Almost any other city in the world would be proud to have Airbnb and Uber founded there.

San Francisco wants to make sure that never happens again.
Why would you found a new tech company in San Francisco?

- high prices
- filthy streets
- constant break-ins
- random assaults

Now, the same city government which deemed straws problematic will be denying licenses to startups.
I suppose you can still do pure cloud in SF.

But for physical innovation, for atoms rather than bits, you need to get out.

Or else bet your company on the same city government that brought you SF’s artificial housing crisis.
