23andMe Zeppelin Hanging Out Above My House, Creeping Me Out

I’m a fan of DNA startup 23andMe. In fact, I was one of the first people to lay down $1,000 and take the test. And I like what they are doing to help disease research.

But this blimp (or rather a zeppelin) they’re flying around Silicon Valley is a menace. First of all, I go outside to get away from work, not to look up in the sky and see a big startup logo hovering over my house. And our attempts to take a video of it almost resulted in a car crash (video below) (Yeah, probably more my fault than theirs, but still, it’s there, I need to video it. From a moving car). Go away, Blimp. Or Zeppelin.

Apparently this thing has been around for a while. An excruciatingly detailed overview of the zeppelin and why it is flying around with a 23andMe logo on it is here.
