Jenny Du would climb the Google dinosaur

Jenny Du and Dare Bear at the Google dinosaur

Some people have asked why I climbed the Google dinosaur. The simple answer is “because I can.” Basically, this is something Jenny Du would do. Was it difficult? No. Dare Bear hoisted me above its ankle and a few feet higher, we were ready to pose. The Google security guard was nice enough to wait until we had a few key shots before asking me to get down for my safety.

The question you may have is, “how impressive is this really?” Let’s consider the picture below. It’s a fuzzy shot of the same night, at the Google Dance 2008. Loren Baker, who is nearly 7 feet tall, is just within danger level with the dinosaur’s head. He is much braver than me. While I braved the climb, estimated at 6 feet above ground, Loren did not fear the bite of the beast. Ah SES San Jose 2008.

Look how tall Loren is relative to the Google dinosaur

    You are very brave Jenny Du. Loren is very tall but I think he looked shorter compared to the dinosaur. I can’t wait to see what Jenny Du will do in the future.
