Yeah, I'm not really a fan of HN -- but since I fit the demographic it's comfortable, and I really do like reading about all the fancy stuff going on in my industry (as, in the end, I do work with most of these companies/people).

That said, it makes me sad, and I don't really know what to do about it. HN succeeds, in part, because groups like YC and pg who make it succeed. Sharding the market and having a "socially thoughtful" group probably doesn't help, because then we just have two echo chambers.

If you have thoughts on how to improve this, I'd love to hear them.
