RB: Julia, Jan 27 - 3:32 and 3:33am

In this post, Julia shows how intently she is listening to the wisdom being shared. No, she's not fuming at all:

Watching the incredibly inspiring Maria Furtwangler moderate the Woman Power panel, sitting next to her extraordinary daughter, Elisabeth (Lisa), her son Jacob, and her husband Hubert Burda.

But what conference would be complete without the requisite vanity shot? Here it is:

This morning, before the Women Power panel.


  1. That's right, Meghan. Throw on a tie and a vest and you're a tech nerd.


  2. I wonder how cheapened the women on this panel who'd accomplished something worthwhile felt when JA was included?

  3. Oh Julia, that is not business attire. Poor dear.

  4. Good grief. Julia dresses like a hooker who isn't quite sure how to blend it with professionals. The mini skirt and bright red hosiery are not at all appropriate for any type of business function or meeting.

    This is more proof that she doesn't expect people to take her and her "business" seriously, and that she's just all about cockteasing and getting what she can out of dorks who think they can easily score with her.

  5. Meghan is a class A idiot.

  6. I know she wants to stand out but it can be done in a way that is still appropriate to the setting

    I almost feel embarrassed for her but I can't completely because it's not like she dresses that way out of ignorance of the standard dress. Her dressing in inappropriate for the setting outfits is clearly deliberate and calculated.

    Then again her clothing choices just help reaffirm my recently adopted belief (which other commenters have also mentioned previously) that she may suffer from histrionic and maybe narcissistic personality disorder. In which case maybe she just can't help it?

    Histrionic Personality Disorders that JA exhibits:
    excerpted from http://www.recurrentdepression.com/site/histrionic-personality-disorder/

    "-Be uncomfortable unless he or she is the center of attention
    -Dress provocatively and/or exhibit inappropriately seductive or flirtatious behavior
    -Shift emotions rapidly
    -Act very dramatically, as though performing before an audience, with exaggerated emotions and expressions, yet appears to lack sincerity
    -Be overly concerned with physical appearance
    -Constantly seek reassurance or approval
    -Be excessively sensitive to criticism or disapproval
    -Have a low tolerance for frustration and be easily bored by routine, often beginning projects without finishing them or skipping from one event to another
    -Be self-centered and rarely show concern for others
    -Have difficulty maintaining relationships, often seeming fake or shallow in their dealings with others"

    'm obviously no psych. professional and people can't be diagnosed online anyway, but it's uncanny how closely she fits the profile (I left out a few symptoms and listed those that she seems to best fit, but these are the majority of the symptoms.)

    From the minis and cleavage at business conferences to the golden "bull" riding at the DLD party to her lashing out at the slightest criticism (like the "c*nt comment to Gawker), the self obsession, the need to come across as seductive, etc, it's all there.

  7. wow that does sound like her!

  8. shes essentially wearing a business attire hooker costume...right?

    honestly that thing is a tennis skirt.

  9. HAHAHAHAHA she has her photobooth open to look at herself as the women are speaking. OMG.

  10. erg, is speaking. i'm about at good at editing as the NS girls.

  11. Holy s*** great catch on the photobooth thing. Why is it not remotely surpsrising? Wonder if that picture will stay up long.
