Talking Tech With Jesse Draper

Mike Cassidy of Los Angeles Times characterizes Jesse Draper’s Silicon Valley-based talk show as a weird relief.

The Internet talk show, called “The Valley Girl Show,” is weird all right. And goofy and silly, and it’s on the Internet, for God’s sake, the province of skateboarding cats and viewers with gnat-like attention spans. But it is also a relief — it makes a place (Silicon Valley) that takes itself too seriously knock it off for a while. And in the process, the show can be revealing.

BTW, the lady in pink is from one California’s royal families. Her grandfather, Bill Draper, is among the valley’s first venture capitalists. Her father, Tim Draper, is founder of Draper Fisher Jurvetson (the VC firm behind Skype, Tesla and Hotmail).
