Best Smell at a Bad Dot-Com Party San Francisco 2000 -
Lord knows the dot-communists have taken their share of flak for their perceived lack of style and social adeptness. But then, lord knows, some of them have earned it -- like the pear-shaped, pasty-faced, sneaker-and-oxford-wearing geekerati (and those were the women) who attended a certain Internet industry party at the Sound Factory on April 6. It was bad enough that the drinks weren't free, but then a friend remarked, "Someone here needs a shower." Not everyone in attendance was guilty of this offense, but for those who were: Guys, it's bad enough that you're buying up the city. Do you have to stink it up, too?
