Okay, Adaptive Path (yes, yes, the people in the tub of lust, everyone keeps bringing it up) is one of the few unmockable San Francisco Internet startups. It puts out an actual service, has actual offices (with REAL DESKS. Really), and it's been up and running for five years. Now it's selling bits of itself to Google and hooking up hook-up artists at anniversary parties.
But it still can't get no respect. At the latest AP party, Irina Slutsky of Geek Entertainment TV quizzed notables like HOT or NOT's James Hong and 43 Folders blogger Merlin Mann. The question: "What is Adaptive Path?" The answers: guerillas, life choices, navigating water, and maybe a beverage.
