Is That Barbie in the Server Room?
It’s official folks. Being a geek is, without a doubt, chic. Even Barbie’s doing it!
Mattel announced last week that Barbie’s 125th career would be that of a computer engineer. Girl’s come a long way since her days as a secretary hasn’t she?
Barbie’s latest foray into the working world was determined by an online vote – Mattel’s first. A profession in high tech beat out equally progessive occupations such as Architect, Environmentalist, news anchor and surgeon.
Imagine that. After all the years tech enthusiasts have logged being pegged as “computer nerds” and a busty blonde plastic mold comes along and makes it trendy.
I wonder if her “Interests” would include long walks in the server room and magic gatherings. But I digress . . .
