Mike Judge’s Genius Satire ‘Silicon Valley’ Skewers Tech Titans - The Daily Beast

Mike Judge s Genius Satire Silicon Valley Skewers Tech Titans The Daily Beast

The satire, on the other hand, is exquisite. At this point, the culture of Silicon Valley is so codified—and so absurd—that Judge and his team (co-creators John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky and co-showrunner Alec Berg) are able to skewer it simply by ripping real details from the headlines (or from their research) and inserting them directly into the show. There’s the famous graffiti artist hired to enliven Pied Piper’s garage (a la Facebook). There are the Hooli brainstorming sessions conducted atop a seven-person conference bike (a la Google). There’s even a send-up of Siri (a la Apple).
