PR team at Powerset sporting 'staches

My co-minions at Powerset have been growing (or faking growing) facial hair in the run up to our beta launch. And, of course, it has its own blog: Powerstache.com. It’s even made the LA Times, and Michael Arrington’s initial take on our beta product even mentions it.

Chris pretty much wins, though.

    Will, I think you know what I have to say about this.

    I’m guessing you’re noticing that

    – the women at Powerset can participate only by putting on male drag?
    – the mustaches are white European mustaches even when sported by non-caucasian women?
    – a patriarchal symbol is receiving as much notice as the technology and services that Powerset hopes to provide?
    – the PR team for Powerset is overwhelmingly female, while the technical team is overwhelmingly male?

    Am I getting warm?

    Pretty warm.

    Congratulations, Chris, you have a Y chromosome.
