[The startup world] is solving problems for the top 5% of the population. How can I get poor people to do my chores? How can I get people to drive me around without having to pay them health insurance? How can a drone deliver my toilet paper within 15 minutes while the person who fulfilled my order sits at her desk crying because she’s working a 15-hour day and can’t take time off to get that lump in her chest looked at. This is known as the service economy. Where entitled white boys figure out how to replicate their private school dorm experience for life.

I woke to find that horror legend Wes Craven passed away at 76, due to brain cancer. His A Nightmare on Elm Street scared the pants of me and many others, and even if the series quickly went off the rails, the entries he worked on are all worthwhile, the first being a classic. The seventh entry, Wes Craven’s New Nightmare, while not lighting the box office on fire, did the meta aspect years before the Scream series. While Craven dealt primarily in horror, he was a versatile director with a penchant for satire, and overall seemed like a decent fellow.
