pointerLavorare in una startup a San Francisco

Padlet ne racconta l’ambiente, in maniera ironica:

Alex: I have a startup. We are Yelp for contractors.
Ben: I have a startup too. We are contractors for Yelp.
[Pause]
Together: Business model … yada yada yada Paul Graham … Series A … lorem ipsum Google sucks.

This, in itself, is not a problem; I enjoy these conversations. The problem is that they often render you incapable of any other forms of communication. E.g.:

Girlfriend’s dad: Great weather today.
Ben: Yeah. It’s beautiful.
[Pause]
[Longer pause]
Ben: So I see you use an iPhone. Android sucks, huh?
