It always goes back to economics. If people can’t afford to have their businesses here and can’t afford to live here, slowly, slowly they’ll leave. And then the diversity won’t be here anymore.

Stand up for preservation! Work as hard as we can to preserve all of these traditions and to keep them vibrant in our city so that we don’t lose that diversity.

I think San Francisco always has that reputation. It’s wide open and free. People came here and do anything they want and be who they want to be.

When I think about the future of the city, who’s going to make lunch? Who’s going to teach children? Who’s going to be a cop, who’s going to do these jobs when you can’t live in the community you work in?

Now people ask you, “What do you do?” You say, “I’m a designer. I work in nonprofit.” They will say “What? You’re not in tech. Why are you here?”

San Francisco is a great city to get lost. It isn’t just a city to work in. It’s a city to engage in, to wander

around, and lost a little bit, to take time off.

There are a lot of differences between long-term

locals and tech workers, but it doesn’t mean they have to hate each other.
