HBO's Silicon Valley finds fans in tech

Mockumentary poking fun at high tech coming back for second season


Devon Crews, head of marketing for Santa Clara, California-based Citrix Startup Accelerator, which invests in early-stage companies, doesn't miss an episode. And he says other entrepreneurs in the accelerator are watching, too. "Some love it. Some love to hate it, but everyone agrees that it is LOL funny," said Crews.

The show has also attracted far flung Silicon Valley wannabes, uniting techies around the world who tweet their favorite lines to each other while they watch.

"All those geeky acts in a place that is like a wonderland for me, Silicon Valley, is just the thing I want to watch in a comedy," said computer scientist Arash Pourhabibi Zarandi via email from Shiraz, Iran.
