Her? Apropos of nothing, Allison Williams appeared at the SoHo Apple Store last night to talk about acting while brandishing her gleaming white teeth. The SoHo Apple Store, you see, is in the midst of a Meet the Actors series for no apparent reason. What does Apple have to do with acting? We dunno. But it does qualify Allison Williams as a tech related entity for the day. Here are some tech-related anecdotes she shared, via Nylon.com. The first one counts as #tech because the scene she’s describing took place at a fictional startup party and involves noted tech person Kanye West.
Family ties Looks like Kim Dotcom has a pretty good sense of humor about his appearance. The Megaupload founder recently posted a photo on his Instagram of himself posing next to a hippo with the caption “Kim and his Brother ;-).” Zing.

It’s been said that if Sex And The City were still on the air, Carrie would be dating a startup dude. (For related theories on how George Costanza would deal with Snapchat, please see @ModernSeinfeld.)
Lucky for Lena Dunham that her Brooklyn-based take on entitlement coincides with the rise of New York’s nouveau tech riches. We already saw boho babe Jessa slum it with a square venture capitalist. (Factcheck on his “Steal My Sunshine” mash-up, though: In real life, VCs are much more partial to posting indie rock or dad rock on their Tumblr. And we’re sorry to report you probably picked the same song of the year.)

Not only is the Girls star gamely attending the D: Dive Into Media conference with her boyfriend, College Humor cofounder Ricky Van Veen—sample panel: How the Net and Social Media Are Changing the Movie Business—but she can be relied upon not to dish about the relationship to bloggers.

Earlier today, someone posted to Reddit a rather cute picture of Girls star Allison Williams getting cozy with a sea lion on a visit to Sea World. The marine mammal has leaned in as though sharing a confidence, and Ms. Williams has a look of delighted shock. The caption: “Must be a crazy secret.”
And so a meme–“crazy secret”–was born. And like so many memes, some instances are infinitely more charming than others. For example, this is pretty cute:
A surprisingly diverse crowd showed up at The Gramercy Theater last night for the annual CollegeHumor Offline show. The audience was almost half female and included numerous fans significantly older than the site’s namesake demographic.
The content, however, was exactly what you’d expect if you’ve ever perused CollegeHumor for some sophomoric fun. The show featured a familiar crew—Jake Hurwitz and Amir Blumenfeld of the site’s most popular series, Jake & Amir, Elaine Carroll of Very Mary-Kate—delivering familiar punch lines, most to the effect of, “I put my dick in your Sprite.” CollegeHumor’s editor in chief Streeter Seidell opened the show with a few jokes about peeing himself and disliking farmer’s markets before assuring the audience that there were a lot more “cumming jokes” to look forward to. In that respect, the performers did not disappoint.
