Totally unplanned, this past weekend I had a mini marathon of watching highly cringy documentaries, and the Making and Breaking of a $47 Billion Unicorn was no less disturbing than Seaspiracy or Human Nature (highly recommend the latter one for slow viewing).
The news of the demise of this fake tech company which was in fact a real estate company came in already a couple of years ago, but what the documentary does is showing you the granularity of it, the unfolding of events through the eyes of the core people deceived by it all. The face of impostors and greedy people, and of course the ruthless face of the capitalism. Like @johncoate put it back when the news first break out back in the day:
how did this guy convince the head of Softbank to invest so much money? He must be a gifted bullshitter. And it’s the greed pheromone, so seductive.
To me, it was even more touching because it was in 2012 that we started edgeryders with a similar understanding of our Y Generational quest for work with meaning, for community and collaboration. To see how these concepts mean almost nothing else today because they were so abused by the likes of those above, is deeply saddening.
