DIARY

Forget the image of geeky Silicon Valley nerds with pocket protectors and thick glasses. Today’s Silicon Valley stars wear designer casual, drive fast cars (or SUVs), dine at trendy hot spots and date hot women working for Valley PR firms like Blanc & Otus. At least that’s the impression you might get from a recent Time story on ’The new Silicon Valley,’ which prominently featured Simone Otus of B&O. In the story, Otus is quoted on such matters as the number of new business suitors her firm turns down in favor of ’cool’ companies offering stock equity. Otus also points out the propensity for her attractive female employees to hook up with wealthy male clients. Will the synergy never stop? For the record, valley industry insiders say the women of Weber PR could give B&O a run for its money.
