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.

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