Announcing, Announcing, Announcing - She's Geeky - and girl geek unconference in Mountain View in October.
Shesgeeky invites a diverse range of women working in information technology (broadly defined,) those aspiring to work in the industry AND those who have retired from the industry.
This is an ‘agenda free’ conference about women in technology. This is a women’s only event. Why? Because there is a certain quality of conversational space that is created in a women only environment.
DATE: Monday and Tuesday October 22-23, 2007
LOCATION: Computer History Museum in Mountain View.
Who Should Attend?
Sheesgeeky is for women of all ages who self identify as geeks. You don’t have to code. You can like and use the tools…or maybe you just care about the issues facing women as they work in or around technology development….
Women who are passionate about building technology that’s useful for people and believe that passionate, geeky women’s presence in our industry leads to more opportunity, a more supportive and civilized environment and better technology goals for all.
Sheesgeeky will include women working in:
- Open Source
- Web 2.0
- Hardware companies
- Enterprise IT
- The Nonprofit Technology Sector
- Search Engines
- Social Networking Sites
- Research for and about technology/people
- Startups generally
- Product building/management in large organizations
- Your definition of geekiness (if you don't see it here add it)
Sheesgeeky will explore a range of topics designed for our mutual learning.
Sorry, no boys. Register here! $25 bucks. I know a cheap hotel in MV too. I think us LA Geek Girls should rent a limo and show up in style. hehe.
Oh and this will probably be an ass-kicking time - especially since Kaliya is a fan of openspace - and I think open space kicks ass.
Oh, in other girl geekiness - Blogher is going on right now. Unfortunately, I am not there, except in spirit. Although I might try to attend in Second Life!
