A little known secret is that the center of most power in Silicon Valley sits with the Silicon Valley Moms Club. These are CEOs, CFOs, wives of the same, etc. They have a lot of power and influence And they don’t like to be told no, ever.
I heard that a member was upset she couldn’t get into the TechCrunch party last week and wrote about it on the SVM blog. Silicon Valley Moms can’t be bothered with silly things like a wiki to simply sign up (the party was open to all), they go right the source of power – David Hornik. Or rather, David Hornik’s wife.
Why should 700 OTHER people get to play while I am stuck at home watching my kids? I know that invites to Techcrunch were nearly impossible to get – but for god sake, I am best friends with his wife! My kids are best friends with HIS kids! So I may not be a 20 something hip cool blogger, but I am a mommy blogger! Doesn’t that count for something?
All I can say is, I apologize. At the end of the day, who cares if Mini Om has a vendetta against me. It’s the mom’s I’m really scared of.
