For Women in Silicon Valley, It Seems Like

"[Palo Alto is] one of the few places in the Western Hemisphere where men
outnumber women. And since this is also the land of the best educated,
highest paid workers in the world, minting 64 new millionaires a day, single
women in search of smart, successful men should be having a ball.

But the valley is a weird world, unto itself. In this sphere, techies take
their dogs, birds and pajamas to work, and being too busy for anything but
becoming the next MOP (millionaire on paper) is as crucial to fitting in as
Palm organizers and T-shirts.

'The girls know they have the pick of the litter,' Aronson said. 'And
there's a lot of gold diggers out there. They come around just to play who
wants to meet a millionaire.'

'They say that the ratio is so good here," Austin said. "But the good guys
that are available don't come out of their cubicles.'"

Maybe KnowNow should be in Silicon Valley after all.
