Are you sure you want to be in San Francisco? - (37signals)

Are you sure you want to be in San Francisco? - (37signals):
"The flush availability of other people’s money is simply too tempting. When you’re not spending your own money, it’s easy to splash on a big open office on day one, a staff of 10 in no time, and have few worries about paying the bills on the 1st of the month. It takes away much of the urgency to make money that I think is critical to build sustainable businesses."
Obviously DHH is in the anti-Bay crew. 37signals is based in Chicago, with a few workers all over the planet.

But to me, all these guys talking about how bad the Bay Area is for you, your company, your dog... it sounds a little defensive. Like when your friend pulls up in a Lamborghini Diablo, and you start talking about how much better the mileage is on your Honda Civic.
