Fueling the growing rift is a common belief that the vast wealth being amassed by the tech industry is not spilling over into the community.This article oozes disdain for those that have money.

Instead, activists say, the high-tech invasion is driving up the cost of living to levels that more San Franciscans cannot afford.
They say that a dramatic increase in rent, housing prices and evictions has sharpened income inequality and squeezed out more middle-class families, small businesses, artists and intellectuals, the people who gave San Francisco its rich and diverse cultural appeal.
