This is a busy time of year (I joked to Cate a few weeks ago that the United States, at least, shuts down between Thanksgiving and New Year’s), so we don’t have any posts for you right now.
However! I’d like to still encourage y’all to write (and think about ideas for posts as you go on holiday, etc.) and submit!
For now, here are some interesting links I found this last week related to compsci women:
- Vivek Wadwha is interviewed (mp3) about women tech entrepreneurs (and why there aren’t more) “America and Canada need to innovate–right now, we are excluding half of our population…let’s recognize that there’s a problem: there’s a dearth of women in technology.”
- Valerie Aurora writes about the dark side of open source conferences: “Some people argue that if women really want to be involved in open source (or computing, or corporate management, etc.), they will put up with being stalked, leered at, and physically assaulted at conferences.”
- And, if you happen to be a female undergraduate attending a North American institution, perhaps you’re interested in this!
Best wishes in this busy time of year!
