On Marketplace Weekend, there's a lot of talk about technology — what companies are doing and making, how tech is influencing the economy and how it affects all of us. But what we don't hear a lot of is what it feels like to live and work in the Silicon Valley bubble.

What's it like to put in 16 hour days at a startup? To struggle to distinguish yourself, to find your place in a culture where everything can be bought and sold? 

It's something Anna Wiener wrote about in the spring issue of n+1 in her piece "Uncanny Valley."

Wiener joined Marketplace Weekend from San Francisco to read from her piece and to talk more about finding her own place in the world of tech.
