The show looks to be comical, but will it be an accurate representation of Silicon Valley itself? I was talking to a co-worker yesterday about the trailer before watching it myself and she had a few thoughts to say on it. Actually, she was a little bit peeved about it because as a female software engineer in the industry and working in Silicon Valley, there was no representation of that in trailer and we’re both pretty sure that women like herself won’t be highlighted in the HBO series either. Instead, women in the show will be portrayed as they were in maybe say… The Social Network… a little bit slutty instead of as strong and intelligent engineers that they are or that you might find in SV. I think Silicon Valley will do well. It’s on HBO after all and sure, people will watch because those who aren’t living and working in this area will be more than a little bit curious. However, what you see isn’t my life. It’s not even the life that my co-workers even lead, but it’s entertaining that everyone will think so I suppose.
