i've taken the liberty of replacing the words "San Francisco" with the words "Burning Man."
It isn't as if Burning Man hasn't seen a tech boom before. Burning Man's dotcom boom of 1998 to 2001 also led to significant displacement in Black Rock. But this latest one is focused on the city and visibly changing it faster. Many long-time Burning Man residents worry not only about being forced out of the city they love, but also that their city is being changed for the worse. Critics say that Burning Man's communities of alternative culture, ethnic or otherwise – the soil of its creative mojo and legendary social movements – are being turned into playgrounds for rich people. If Burning Man's soul is its social and economic diversity and status as a refuge for those outside the mainstream, then it is being lost.
Emerging in its place is the mostly white, male-dominated, monied monoculture of the tech industry and there appears no end in sight.
