TechCrunch Disrupt shows an industry grappling with diversity
from San Francisco Chronicle
When TV writer Mike Judge re-created a high-stakes startup pitch contest in his HBO series "Silicon Valley," viewers criticized him for hiring mostly male extras to act as spectators at the industry event. Those weren't extras, he told them. That was footage from the actual audience of TechCrunch Disrupt. The signature green spotlights lit up mostly young, mostly white and almost entirely male faces watching the Startup Battlefield.
