Silicon Valley is disgusting. What is wrong with the tech industry? Why is everything about money?

When the industry was first getting started it was about changing the world. Now if you mention you are a Software Engineer people automatically thing IPO, Stock Options, $$, Porshes, and screwing other people over. Gates, Ellison, McNeally.... etc. etc.

What is a guy to do? I am not going to call myself a Software Engineer any more. Software Renegade? Artist? Software Artist... hm.

One thing is for sure. I don't want to categorize myself with unethical snakes that work for the Evil Empire.
