Silicon Valley is more than just a place: it’s a promise, a dream in which innovation and creativity reign. This is just as true for the people who work odd or anonymous jobs as it is for CEOs and software engineers. Put together by members of the social justice organization of the same name, De-Bug presents the raw experiences of people hustling to make ends meet in a region fabled for its never-ending opportunity. We see the South Bay through the eyes of club bouncers, ice cream cart pushers, assembly line workers, and many others whose tales reveal the full reality of the region. As much an unauthorized diary of Silicon Valley as it is a piece of history, this collection tells some of the most profound, shocking, hilarious, and heartbreaking stories imaginable.
Disruptive in the truest sense of the word, De-Bug offers valuable insight into California’s latest boomtown.
