San Francisco is the hub of all things technology, but many of our residents feel animosity toward the roiling hoards of Patagonia-clad techies hell-bent on “changing the world.” Most of their reasons are self-evident: tech salaries have inflated the cost of living so aggressively that those in the service industry have been priced out, and being a doctor or a lawyer won’t necessarily cut it here either.
