Well, what do you expect when there's a half-sized basketball court in the office, and the Chat Diva, Marti Zimlin is holding her own court at the other end of the office? While young programmers and designers shot hoops, Marti shot witty comments for the chat with rapper Mic Geronimo. "Yo! It's mad. It's an original, cool way to bring people together ... I had a good time." It all came trippingly off his tongue, and why not? Today's rappers are the Billy Shakes-peer of this generation -- at least online.
