"That declaration of readiness, no matter what the outcome, that’s a part of everyone’s soul. We are all motivated by deep impulses and deep appetites to serve, even though we may not be able to locate that which we are hoping to serve. So this is just a part of my nature and I think everybody else’s nature to offer oneself at the critical moment when the emergency becomes articulate. It is only when the emergency becomes articulate that we can locate that willingness to serve."  Leonard Cohen

I have seen the best minds of my generation destroyed
        by start-ups, smug, hypocritical and sad,
dragging themselves through Palo Alto at dawn
        looking for a gruff VC,
headhunted hipsters burning for singularity
        and a half-day course in mindfulness,
who sat up for days in augmented wealth glugging on soylent
       sober on amaranth and the gluten-free jazz
       of dawn's abundant enema,
who bared their coy nipples to each other and to Elon
      in the half-arsed drag and TedX of a catered desert tent.
