Anti-Tech Protesters Criticized For "Stalking" Google Developer

Could this be the new reality for tech workers in the Bay Area -- protesters at their door?

The furor over the tech boom has come home for one Google engineer.

Google X developer Anthony Levandowski was at home in Berkeley on Wednesday morning when he received some uninvited guests: a pack of anti-tech protesters, according to reports.

His doorbell was rung at 7 a.m. and his neighborhood was peppered with fliers, informing his neighbors that he'd done work with the defense industry and also been working as a property developer.

On Indybay.org, a home for the Bay Area's radical left, were published details including what Levandowski's home looks like as well as what he was doing at the time -- holding his baby, with Google Glass on his face and an iPad in his hands.

There is worry that tech workers will have to worry about protesters showing up at their homes as a matter of course, according to Business Insider.
