CrunchGear Party Draws Gearheads, And–Shocker–Women


Photo: Caroline McCarthy, CNet CNet’s Caroline McCarthy wraps up last night’s birthday party for TechCrunch’s sister blog CrunchGear at Red Sky on East 29th St.

Freelancer and Next New Networks blog editor Blake Robinson pointed out that the gender ratio was actually somewhere close to 50/50–and possibly slightly skewed in favour of the females, which would make the event just about unprecedented in the local tech scene’s distinct history of “brodeos.”

Apparently absent: Valley-based CrunchGear/TechCrunch publisher Michael Arrington and NY-based, nerd-seeking socialite Julia Allison. Another recap by CrunchGear’s Blake Robinson.
