Silicon Valley Insight?

October 20, 2018

I read “Silicon Valley’s Ultimate Status Symbol Is the Sneaker — Here Are the Rare, Expensive, and Goofy Sneakers Worn by the Top Tech CEOs.” I had to check my calendar to see if I confused October 20 with April 1.

I didn’t. This is a real news story from real journalists. I suppose it is a less risky topic than some a real journalist might cover.

I noted this statement, which I assume is part of the real news arsenal of great writing tips:

the right pair of kicks is a trademark accessory carefully selected to convey a mix of power and nonchalance, creativity and exclusivity.

Yeah, gym shoes, sneakers, shoes made of fabric and synthetics by well paid workers with generous benefits.

Remarkable. I wonder why Brotopia failed to include sneaker fold outs to enliven the text about bros.

    Ultimately people want good sites. They don’t want empty pages and crappy content. Ultimately that’s your goal – it’s created for your users.

Got something to say?
