The Silicon Valley Guy Next Door’s thoughts on Europe

CLA / OtherSiVaGuNeDo

Silicon Valley men have so much to learn from the Europeans - from how to dress to the way they treat their significant others, the Spanish, Italians, and British bring their best everyday - they make it seem so natural that you may not even notice.

Often it is the little things, - a pocket square, a lapel pin, opening the door for another - but it comes back to a classy kindness that left Silicon Valley with Pong.

C'mon guys, remove the backward ball cap, the sunglasses from you head, the backpack - and have an ounce of pride in your appearance.

    I'm a man in Silicon Valley, and I'm from Europe. Your post is full of ridiculous generalizations. You need to look into your soul and think about why you have these misconceptions about "Europeans" and "Silicon Valley men."

    You think Brits and Italians are running around with pocket squares and lapel pins all the time? What world do you live in?

      I don't think I've seen anybody with a backward ball cap in a long time.

    Why EU is so much after Google’s money?

      Well this is a topic change, but the EU is after Google for being evil. Phones that can't update and stay secure because of bad architecture decisions which have forced consumers through more upgrades than necessary. Bundling a browser and search with an OS to foster lock in. Weird part is Microsoft admitted they were doing shitty anticompetitive things in the 90's and Google has a much worse, entitled attitude about it all.

    Compare European women to American women. Same result. Just different cultures.
