George Chen, asian guy


The asian guy or internet guy or mp3 guy shows up everywhere. I see him rocking out to all sorts of mp3 players; selling me the world from the other side of emo glasses. But who is he? A 1999 article reveals that he is George Chen (via Waxy.org sideblog) and examines who he is and why he shows up everywhere. Even the New York Times was interested in him, which means that he’s fit to print at least. It seems the least likely of fates – to be an employee for a software company and to wind up a ubiquitous model. I guess it’s one more example of things that the Internet makes possible, eh Mahir?
