He told me he got around a 33 out of 43.
I said, “You read too much TechCrunch.”
[Small observations after the jump.]
When I mentioned this to Ed, he told that the Christian Metal Band or Star Trek Episode one was better. I suppose it would be really funny, except I don’t listen to Christian Metal and have seen very few Star Trek episodes. (Well, few enough that back when I was at Caltech, my roommate’s girlfriend/future wife wiped the floor with me on the Star Trek trivia hypercard stack.)
Me and the TechCrunch 40
Speaking of which, Ed tweeted this article on TechCrunch 40.
Everyone this week was asking me whether I was going to this TechCrunch 40 party or that one. You people have an inflated sense of my ability to scum a free invite. If I had gotten one, I’d have immediately given it to the guys at Uncov, since they could have done some real damage there.
Instead, I donated them $40. This money was returned because the rest of you weenies don’t understand the entertainment value in seeing Kyle with a webcam strapped to his head. Heck, or put it on Ted’s head—I always wondered what Web 2.0 personalities have a comb over, and now I’ll never know.
Ahh well, net-net is that I’m definitely not a tech celebrity, I just know some tech celebrities who are nice enough to me because I refuse to allow Megan to convince me that my wardrobe full of blue oxford button-downs are not cool—besides, I haven’t done my laundry in a while.
The TechCrunch crowd meets Lunch 2.0 one
Somewhere at the Adobe Lunch 2.0 last week, a first time Lunch 2.0er was very confused. “How do these guys make money?”
“They don’t,” Alex replied.
“I don’t understand.”
No doubt, the guy had come to the event to get a head start on TechCrunch 40.
The peeps behind TechCrunch 40
Umm what about Michael Arrington? Fuck Arrington!
Jason Calacanis? No. He’s cool.
C’mon, Michael, you know you want to eat our lunch.
You wouldn’t want us to have to compete with you?
Web 2.0 or Star Wars Character? 35 out of 43
Christian Metal or Star Trek Episode? 9 out of 12
(Yeah, those scores scare me also. Obviously, I’m an even bigger loser than I thought.)
