This is probably more California things, but saw an article that said that while middle class and below flight from California is a very real thing, wealthy influx into California is also a very real thing.

It would appear that California is on a trajectory to potentially (if not already) have the greatest gap between the have's and the have not's in the United States.

I suppose current California policy will allow the have's to be able to take advantage of cheap labor for domestic purposes as well as constructing their various palatial mansions and gentrification projects for further displacement of middle and lower classes.

Tech/startup lifestyle things have been around so long that I can't help but feel that people into them must be sort of obliviously uncool. Do people still enthusiastically talk about things like how their software is going to change the world?

You aren't wrong. Prop 13 makes it a pretty attractive place to buy real estate if you can get in. And in SF//LA not a lot of places middle or even upper-middle class can afford to buy.

no it's all purely about getting rich
