In a blow to masculine dignity, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg got together with the founders of FriendFeed to sign the papers on a $50 million deal looking more like boys at a backyard kegger than actual adults.
While I'm not sure whether menswear is a leading indicator of business success, people with stock in companies like Microsoft and California taxpayers have invested, however indirectly, in the two companies.
And the co-founder of the FriendFeed's new parent company, Zuckerberg, couldn't even be bothered to wear socks or long pants while signing away eight figures on a nominal competitor with a fraction of Facebook's users.
One hopes he was at least wearing clean underwear.
Silicon Valley prides itself on being innovative, but clearly in a very narrow way.
Nobody, and I mean nobody, should look to the region for men's fashion inspiration.
