CAMBRIDGE, MASS. — Technology Review editor-in-chief Jason Pontin is bursting with pride. No, not the Clay Aiken sort : He is married — to a woman, one must specify, since this is Massachusetts — and the couple is expecting a child in mid-October. Oh, and his magazine has won some large number of awards from an industry trade publication , placing behind CRN for best online community. But how to explain his choice of wardrobe at the EmTech conference he is hosting? His hosiery recalls Nathan Lane's in The Birdcage . On the surface, Pontin's straightness remains as plausible as the former West Oakland resident's British accent. Update: Pontin adds, "Please mention my stylishly skinny Nudie jeans from Sweden." You're not helping, Jason.
