Homeless or billionaire?


During our trip, we met with Jon, who often plays a game with his wife. The two of them live in Santa Cruz, driving distance from Silicon Valley.

Their game is called ”Homeless or billionaire?”

To play the game, you simply guess if the people walking by are either homeless or billionaires. In Silicon Valley, this can prove quite difficult.

”There is no way to spot the difference” according to Jon.

”These are the values that dominate northern California. Nobody cares about looks – this place is only about achievements. Southern California, with LA and Hollywood, is the opposite. There, everything is about looks.”
