Him, mid twenties, fresh out of college, first proper job in his life. Thinks he's seen it all and knows it all, just appropriate for him to make blanket, stereotypical comments about an entire industry.

@djsumdog @fribbledom Nice that you touched on how the cities' history and dominant industry affected things. From my more limited experience this is what I've picked up on, too. There's a lot of cultural variation even just on the west coast.
