Short People Got No Reason to Vlog?
Leave it to the freakishly tall Megan McCarthy of Valleywag to impugn our stature at BoomTown.
In her post late last week that I missed (I was traveling and therefore not aware of her cruel, cruel taunts), she pointed with dread to a recent promise I made to try out a new wearable camera I saw at the TechCrunch40 conference earlier in the week, a la Justin Kan of Justin.tv.
One thing to keep in mind about this new development: Swisher, unlike Kan, is tiny–about 5’2″, if that. Any hat-camera she wears will be eye-level with Silicon Valley’s chest. We look forward to watching her conversations with Walt Mossberg’s sweater.”
First off, I am 5’2″ (really!!) and not a “little person” as one VC once called me.
Second, Walt never wears sweaters.
And third: Chest-level was the plan, if you must know!
Silicon Valley’s chest=big traffic!
