Silicon Valley

I managed to catch up on some of the new Mike Judge show Silicon Valley and was quite amused.


This clip shows the reality of remote conferencing type tools. A bunch of nerdy nerds in Silicon Valley with a small start up. Stupid money flows around and everyone has their own ideas for software to make the world a better place. The best being human heaters which blast you with microwaves.

Another clip shows why and how they started Scrum.


It’s full of good references, similar to IT Crowd, with a few howlers that you can let pass for the sake of making the show flow (only one of them knowing Java, yeah right and a disturbing lack of source control). It mocks nerds and nerd culture whilst showing the PR people to be babbling techno-phrases

    @Alan_A_Graham I’ve been planning to watch Silicon Valley for a while, might bingewatch. That logo brings back glorious Sim City 2 vibes.

    The intro is actually pretty cool, it follows up and you see companies rise and fall
