Please Don't Let Any Of These Tech People Fuck Each Other And Make Little Tech People Babies

"Andrew Vecchio, the co-founder and CEO of Startup and Tech Mixer, wanted to make it absolutely clear that his Friday night event — with 2,500 attendees, a bouncy blowup game of Twister, and a mechanical bull in downtown San Francisco’s W Hotel — was not a party. 'We don’t use the word "party." We’re bringing consciously designed spaces and innovative thinkers together to inspire,'

Sounds more like he's trying to give them all concussions.

I think the olds used to just call them "happenings".

Alternate take : "Consciously designed spaces … to inspire" is code for "there will be no good drugs at this party."

"Here, there’s a mechanical bull. There’s an arcade. This is actually how people make deeper connections." Well, I guess this explains why I'm still single.

Paging Thorstein Veblen, Thorstein Veblen to the W Hotel, please.

You can gauge the level of Balk's spleen by the fact that he stopped reading mid-sentence. Mid-sentence!

“This is our fifth mixer. People are like, ‘Andrew, what could be next?’ And it’s like, ‘Oh. Done.’ We have a mechanical bull. Game-changer. Innovate.”

If they're going to get any disrupters worth a shit in that consciously designed space they'd better get one of those glass boxes you get inside of and try to grab dollar bills that blow around.

This reads like a pretty solid David Brent quote:

"People are like, ‘Andrew, what could be next?’ And it’s like, ‘Oh. Done.’ We have a mechanical bull. Game-changer. Innovate.”

Did I read too quickly, or did someone actually NOT say "disruptive"?

Next time use a real bull.
