Guys With Bad Manners and the iPorn Girls at 2009 WWDC

WWDC Highlights: No (Wo)Man's Land

Although I feel right at home surrounded by gadgets and technology, attending the WWDC made me realize that I was walking into a man's world. Making my way to the West Hall of the Moscone Center, I could see that the line outside was 99 percent XY chromosome, and only a spattering of ladies braved the gaggle of geeks alone.

Even though I was outnumbered, I could still find joy in the little things that happen when you get this many geeks together in one place. For example, one of my favorite moments of the day took place after all the big announcements in the keynote had come and gone, and I made my way to the restrooms. Yes, just like at MacWorld, there was a big line for the men's room, and crickets coming from the women's restroom. These are the times we cherish, am I right ladies?

But among all the fun, there were some blatantly obvious signs that this event was more male-focused than not. To find out what they were, just

.

  • As I made my way to registration before the keynote, I saw these girls. Not exactly "Booth Babes," not quite swimsuit models, but they did serve a purpose. They were pimping a new app called iPorn. I guess you could call them iPorn Girls?

  • After the keynote, as I was trying to find a place to plug in my Macbook Pro, I heard an extremely loud belch coming from a group of classy males to my right. After attempting to give the 'ole stinkeye, not one of the dudes posting it up along the wall would make eye contact. That's right guys, not in public.

sontaikle, come be an Apple tech and go to Apple training with me. You really try not to smirk as you pass a line of 40 guys at the restroom.

I would live for the day where the restroom didn't have a line. I think the only place I've been where there wasn't a line was a baseball game!When there's a lot of guys in one place, my boyfriend always calls it a "sausage fest" ;)

Geek- It's alive and rampant in Southern California. At first, the mom in me wanted to whisper to the 16 year old that her crack was showing as she walked down the street in nothing but a bikini and flip flops. Then I saw her adjust it down to show more! That's when the husband leans over and says "thank god we didn't have girls". ;-)

No powder room line is a triumph any day! Thanks for holding up the the geek girl cred sans a skimpy swimsuit, geeksugar!

The sad thing is, they did that on purpose to those girls. I hope this crack-as-cleavage trend doesn't make its way into the regular bathing suit market!

I agree their swimsuits are too small. It's not cute to cut off circulation to your legs.

Wish more people felt like you spacekatgal as my little beach city is overrun with under 20 somethings with their butt crack hanging out.

I was just talking to my husband about this today. He said he's not drinking enough water as the lines are too long for the restroom. He also said out of the 5000 attendees he thinks there are maybe 20 women. His quote was "it's mantastic" ;-) He had sent me a picture of the iPorn girls Monday morning with the subject line "I think she needs bigger bottoms". In the picture he sent me there were like 3 girls and all of their bottoms where that small, it was supposed to show crack. Not sure how I feel about that trend, maybe if my butt looked like theirs I'd be in? ;-)
