About the Box: Kevin Fine Takes on Silicon Valley

Curator's Note: As part of extending the "Looking for Loci" exhibit, I'm gathering additional stories from the participants, and putting them online. Kevin gets the humor award. Or is it irony? You tell us.

Genius Loci: The Stock Option

One of the protective spirits of Silicon Valley is the stock option. It helps to create the environment that we love - creative & energetic people working together to build amazing things.

Unfortunately the stock option can be bit of a trickster spirit, luring people away from their families with promises of riches... often only to disappoint.

- Kevin Fine

At the time of making his box, Kevin had been recently laid off, and his stock options were worth nothing.

He is now gainfully employed.
