I like how from the article this narcisista asshole fathered at least 3 children, 2 from at least the same partner, that are merely an afterthought, a nuisance in his life. Blink and you don’t even realize they exist.
I feel like if someone writes a book and then you want to hire them, you should read the book before you hire them.
Ah, yes, if only there were some way to avoid such a “trick.” To fornicate, and reduce the chances of inadvertently siring a child…FFS. What an arsehole.
I have to conclude that the “British Trader” completely noped when contacted by the editor for permission to use her name.
That part I’ll grant as respecting her privacy by not naming and embarrassing her, but that’s only one point of tact versus several hundred points of edgelord techbro dickishness.

AynCap libertarian tech-bro wet dreams of a Mad Max future, little realizing that they’d be peons for the tech-bro lords.
On the one hand he’s telling everybody everything they need to know about him right there.
On the other hand nobody gets paid enough to have to read that shit.
And at least five facts that help to identify her family.
Here’s the scoop: outsiders who know nothing about Silicon Valley think I’m terrible.
So, 99.9999% of the planet. I wonder what it’s like to have no self-awareness whatsoever.
I also read in his AMA that he’s lightly involved with his children at best, and justifies it by saying the women he’s fathered children with are independent and don’t need him. Oh yeah? what about your kids you total jackass.
Agreed; it’s rare that a hiring decision is made as easy as this.
Hundreds of pages of ‘don’t hire me, I’m trouble’, publicly and immediately available.
Also, his writing, to me at least, is TERRIBLE. Self-indulgent, tortured and flabby.
This man is garbage.
Well, with the state of things, maybe Apple can trade him for a box of shotgun shells or a jerry can of diesel…
This is the man that unironically writes that he divides his time between his sailboat and his yurt.
Thus a single point. One. Single. Point.
Protip: When writing a tell-all book, make sure you do it at a stage in your career where you don’t care about the bridges you’re burning.
I don’t know what he expected to happen, to be honest. Hope it was worth it - he almost certainly didn’t make much money on that book.
Punching wood is important. Minecraft taught me that.
His next book:
I imagine they’re lucky he’s not more involved in their lives really
Yeah, his whole “snookered into fatherhood” line had me thinking…fatherhood…
