Google may seem like the perfect place to work if you’re a nerdy computer genius. You can be among lots of other nerdy computer geniuses. They have free gourmet food on site. Free massages. Dry-cleaning. Stock options. None of which is really doing a lot to help you get laid. But now Google’s taking steps to change all that, according to Page Six:
GOOGLE’S “media” soiree at its new Chelsea office on Oct. 3 is looking more like a singles mixer than a meet-and-greet with reporters. The invitation reads, “Please join us for a media cocktail party” to “meet Googlers in the know.” But many veteran media reporters for business and tech publications weren’t invited, while the fashionable, mostly female staffers at W and Women’s Wear Daily were. “It’s not a ‘media party,’ ” one invitee snickered. “It’s a party for horny tech nerds who want cute girls to show up.” Party organizer Anne Espiritu told us, “We are hosting an event for consumer and broadcast media.”
Sounds like fun!
