The Startup Forest

I’m calling for an end to the language of the Startup Machine.

An end to the pink female entrepreneur in high heels and the heroic, hipster workaholic who doesn’t have time to play with his kids. An end to the founders who engines run out of oil after five years and watch their lives crash as the machine they have become suffers from burn out. These robot stereotypes serve no-one. Least of all the humans and the planet we are part of.

The cowboy who names his cows

Pierre Regné lives and works in Fosse.  He and his family have been organic farmers for many years. The soundtrack to the village in the winter and spring is the cowbells worn by his beef herd as they graze in the valley. In the summer months they are taken into the higher mountains to fresher pastures as the temperatures here rise into the mid thirties and the grass turns yellow with the sun. The transhumance is the annual migration of the cattle and sheep. Every year, Pierre rides his horse and gathers a small group of friends who help him to usher his cows up the mountain.

He is gentle, softly spoken with eyes as clear as day. He loves these animals and he loves his work.

"Do they have names?" the reporter asks. "Yes" he says. "Zsa Zsa, Juliette, Jade, Joyeuse, Julia, Jambe..."

Listen to him being interviewed by France Bleu and fall in love with the Cowboy of Fosse.
