what are your thoughts on building a company in SF?

If I was building a company from scratch again, I would either build it entirely distributed, or I would build it in Canada and take advantage of the exchange rate / lower wages.

SF is insanely expensive; building a large company here is no longer viable. However, what is still viable is a small headquarters. The advantage being that you can hire really talented people, especially for leadership roles.
