Just when you thought there was some kind of ceiling on tech hipster d-baggery…
Now, Hipster, a start-up in San Francisco that lets people post queries and answers to others in their geographic area using the Web and a mobile phone, is trying to attract fresh faces to its company with a particularly attention-getting offer — $10,000 and a year’s supply of beer. The company is also offering a bicycle, pair of oversized glasses, skinny jeans, a bowtie, mustache-grooming services and a pair of boots. The prize was designed to resonate with the company’s name. The beer, of course, is PBR (Pabst Blue Ribbon, for those who are not hip).
This on top of the ludicrously valued Groupon IPO we just saw an S-1 for today, complete with 13,000 word “risks” section.
Party on, the clock is running out.
