Subject: Startup Stereotypes
From: jeremy bornstein
Lenny (who is my CEO) and I were at a party this past weekend. He told me
about the following conversation which he had there with a person whom I'll
call "Lamont", because that was his name.
Lamont: So, you're hiring, right? What positions do you still have open?
Lenny: You mean in engineering?
Lamont: Yeah. For example, do you have the guy with the ponytail yet?
Lenny: That's Dan.
Lamont: Cool. What about the guy with the piercings?
Lenny: That's Jeremy.
Lamont: What about the bald guy?
Lenny: We just made a job offer.
After Lenny told this to me, we decided that he may be a member of the
emerging stereotype "Asian Marketing Weasel", but that it was too early to
tell if this would be as viable a stereotype as the others mentioned above.
