Trump as the first Silicon Valley president
Silicon Valley isn't a big fan of President Trump, but New York Times columnist Charles Duhigg today argues that Trump is really the first "Silicon Valley President" (in terms of style, not ideology). Duhigg quotes Sam Altman, a big Hillary Clinton supporter and president of startup incubator Y Combinator:
"He took on a system he thought was broken and then disregarded the rules, he got to know his users well and tested his product early and iterated rapidly. That's the startup playbook."
