On 1st December 2008, Valley Wag published an article on Leah Culver, the tech/programmer and entrepreneur behind the pownce microblogging website.

The story is an analysis of Leah Culver's private life, mostly who she was dating, and what occupations her lovers have.

"If she doesn't want to be famous, Culver might want to take a look at her relentless technosexuality, which more than hints at the acquisition of influence rather than intimacy as its goal."

In the summary the jounalist flat out accuses Leah Culver of using sex to gain her status in Silicon Valley.

"Is it sexist to point this out? Perhaps, but not nearly as sexist as touting technical skills while sleeping your way to the top."
