Nothing but a silly troll...

If big tech-center cities keep getting more expensive and less livable,
technology will disperse within the USA, or move to more friendly countries that don't tolerate tent cities or destructive riots, and have lower taxes. Both are happening now.
The Freakonomics guys argue that high tech thrives in big cities with good universities and good access to high-tech consultants and high-tech service companies - the sort of service the John Larkin seems to think he offers.
Sustaining that kind of population density comes at a cost, and John seems to be more sensitive to the costs than he is to the advantages.
A lot of giant tech companies are moving out of San Francisco now too.
They may be figuring that Zoom works well enough to replace face-to-face meetings, or they may just be companies that have got infested by masters of business administration who have lost sight of how the company originally got big. One of the more famous expressions of that is that railways went under because the people who ran them though that they were running a railway company, when they were actually running a transportation service.
Nevada sure wants my company.
Make them happy. Your employees may not want to move to Nevada, and your customers may not want to bother to go to Nevada to tell you what new circuits you could sell them, but think of the money you will save as your business dwindles.
