Lena in. Quintessential Brooklynite and divisive millennial figure Lena Dunham checked in with some Silicon Valley business owners yesterday, spending time with Kara Swisher, Sheryl Sandberg, and sundry Twitter and Facebook folks. It was probably a publicity tour dress rehearsal for her upcoming tome, That Kind of Girl, scheduled for release Oct. 7. Can a Reddit AMA be next, please?
Data date. Hillary Clinton and Melinda Gates are teaming up to talk about data for the ladiez. Presumably they’ll tackle content next, then strategy, disruptive innovation and perhaps sustainability (we’ve now run out of corporate buzzwords; back to you, Twitter).
Boss besties. Taking a selfie at a fashion show? It simply isn’t done. In fact, we thought it was illegal. But that didn’t stop Gwyneth Paltrow and Reese Witherspoon. The two snapped a selfie together at the Boss Women show on Feb. 12, duckface and all. It just goes to show you even the most photographed people alive can’t resist a good front-facing photo sesh once in a while.
Congrats, gramps. Rupert Murdoch took a BuzzFeed quiz and got Rupert Murdoch. Funny, whenever Betabeat takes BuzzFeed quizzes, all we ever get are Regina George, Minnesota or peanut butter.
Wattever. Musical comedian Reggie Watts tried his hand at the new app Secret. You’re supposed to use it to confess things anonymously. He didn’t do a great job.
