mountain folk

Silicon Valley slang for people who live in the Santa Cruz Mountains (located west of "the Valley"). Many of these people have families who have lived there for generations. Some tech-refugees seek solace in the hills and choose to live remotely, while other "mountain folk" exist in 60's style communes with no running water. They are considered by some to be the yang of the high-tech ying energy in the area.
